ORF senior sound engineer and EBU-PLOUD Group member Florian Camerer, Dolby senior product marketing manager Rob France and Calrec Audio product manager Henry Bourne are among the confirmed speakers for SVG Europe and Dolby’s Next Generation Audio Summit, which is taking place at Dolby’s Soho Square facility in Central London on November 10.

Avid international audio sales solutions specialist manager Dave Tyler, Lawo product manager audio production Tobias Kronenwett, BroaMan applications engineering manager Maciek Janiszewski and Clear-Com director of sales – EMEA Nicki Fisher are among the other confirmed speakers. RH Consulting co-founder/principal Roland Hemming and University of Essex and Ravensbourne course leader Professor David Crawford will join SVG Europe Managing Editor David Davies – who also wrote the programme in consultation with Dolby – on the moderating line-up.

The first dedicated audio event in SVG Europe history, the NGA Summit will reflect on one of the most exciting periods in broadcast audio since the transition from analogue to digital began in earnest. Encompassing a variety of technologies and techniques designed to deliver a more powerful and customisable experience for viewers at home, NGA is expected to resonate strongly in the high-impact world of sports production.

With ambitious trials taking place at several major sports tournaments over the summer, SVG Europe has partnered with iconic audio technology developer Dolby – whose latest innovations include the immersive Dolby Atmos system – to produce a special summit exploring the potential of Next Generation Audio for sports. The packed half-day programme will also include an update on audio networking and an examination of the challenges that lie ahead for broadcasters as they work to implement these new technologies – and ensure they have the personnel with the necessary skills and expertise to make the most of them.

The Next Generation Audio Summit will also include a networking lunch and drinks, as well as special demos prepared by Dolby, and a special evening screening of the new Tom Cruise film, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back.

The full programme can be found at https://www.svgeurope.org/audio-summit-2016/full-programme/, and more speakers will be announced soon.

The Next Generation Audio Summit is an invite-only event, but anyone who would like to discuss possible attendance or participation should contact SVG Europe Managing Editor David Davies (david@sportsvideo.org) for more information.
