UK AES Conference To Address Audio at Home

The AES UK Section Committee’s 21st annual conference will focus on “Audio at Home.” The conference is scheduled for April 6 and 7, 2006 in New Hall College, Cambridge and will offer a special technical education day on April 8. The “Audio at Home” conference will examine how home-audio providers can successfully complement the aesthetic and the acoustic performance issues of home decor and consumer lifestyles. Participants will explore the marketplace, industrial design, new high-definition audio/video formats and how transducer and electronics design is adapting to the needs of the 21st century household.

Speakers will include Nick Simon, GfK (What Consumers Want to Buy); Bob Brace, Nokia (Industrial Design for Mass Consumer Products); Tony Spath, Dolby Laboratories (Audio Coding for Future Entertainment Formats); Bob Stuart, Meridian Audio (Active Loudspeakers); Mark Dodd and Jack Oclee-Brown, KEF (Surround with Fewer Speakers); John Dawson, Aream (HDMI Video Primer); Peter Willison, Gcap Media (Broadcasting High Definition Audio to the Home); and many other industry leaders.

The April 8 education day will offer demonstration sessions ranging from high definition digital cinema and surround audio to a practical workshop on how to optimize a domestic TV and surround audio system.
