Register for DTV Audio Group Virtual Event: Expanding Virtualized Audio Production

The roundtable will explore next steps required to fully virtualize audio operations for 'at home, at home' production

The DTV Audio Group will host a virtual event entitled “Expanding Virtualized Audio Production: At Home, At Home?” on Wednesday, May 20. CLICK HERE to register now. Join a gathering of audio technologists and remote operations specialists to review the communications and monitoring solutions for remote personnel that are up and working now, and to explore the next steps required to fully virtualize audio operations for “at home, at home” production.

As professional sports gradually return to the air, broadcasters are being challenged to dramatically reduce headcounts for on-site production personnel.  In the last few months, we have become accustomed to home-based on-air talent.  Workflows continue to be refined, and we are likely to see this become a permanent component of sports production.  Meanwhile, broadcasters are actively pursuing plans to allow a wide range of behind-the-scenes production personnel to perform their functions remotely from home or other off-site locations.  How will this impact audio?

There are already reasonably well-established work-from-home solutions for workstation-based video editing, playback, and graphics functions.  Up to now, US broadcasters have not aggressively pushed the envelope to fully virtualize primary audio mixing and communications functions to allow these to be performed completely remotely.  Under pressure to minimize on-site personnel and the attendant risk of travel, this is likely to change.  Are broadcasters now ready to explore the possibilities to take remote audio operations one step further to enable work-from-home?

The session will be introduced by Roger Charlesworth and moderated by Tom Sahara with the following speakers:”

  • Henry Goodman, Product Development Director, Calrec Audio
  • Karl Malone, Director of Sound Design, NBC Sports and Olympics
  • Henry Rousseau, Associate Director Remote Production Operations, ESPN
  • Glenn Stilwell, Senior Audio Engineering and Operations Manager, PAC-12
  • Lucas Zwicker, Technical Product Manager, Audio Production, LAWO
