The 137th Audio Engineering Society Convention—which takes place October 9-12, 2014, at the Los Angeles Convention Center in downtown Los Angeles—will feature a High Resolution Audio (HRA) program Friday, October 10, 2014. The direct result of a collaborative effort between the Audio Engineering Society (AES) and DEG: The Digital Entertainment Group, the HRA program will include a number of panels and sessions that address the current and future direction of HRA from various perspectives, including content creation, digital distribution, licensing of high-res music files, archiving, subscription models, marketing/promotion of high-res music, compatibility of playback devices and more.

These panels and sessions will feature some of the brightest minds in the business as they discuss some of the most current and controversial issues concerning the rapid adoption of high-resolution audio across the industry.

Additionally, there will be an HRA Exhibition Zone that offers an opportunity for CE manufacturers and music industry executives to engage the professional recording community and discuss strategic HRA initiatives.

DEG: The Digital Entertainment Group is an industry association that advocates and promotes entertainment platforms, products and distribution channels on behalf of the motion picture, music, consumer electronics and technology companies.

“The DEG is pleased to join with the Audio Engineering Society in promoting the benefits of High-Res Audio during this event,” says Amy Jo Smith, president, DEG. “Working together, we can underscore HRA’s numerous benefits to the professional recording community and enlist their support in helping drive this initiative.”
