Broadcast audio in focus at this year’s Reproduced Sound conference

Taking place on 12-14 November, this years' conference – hosted by the Institute of Acoustics – includes visits to the BBC’s R&D facility and the University of Salford’s acoustics research unit. London 2012 sound designer Denis Baxter will deliver the keynote address.

This year’s Reproduced Sound conference, hosted by the Institute of Acoustics (IOA), takes place from 12-14 November. Broadcast audio is the focus of this year’s event, titled: “Delivering the experience – from imagination to realisation in audio” Two special visits at the BBC’s R&D facility and the University of Salford’s acoustics research unit, both at the nearby MediaCityUK site at Salford Quays, have been arranged for conference delegates on 12 November, with the conference itself being staged at the Renaissance Hotel, Manchester, on 13-14 November. On the morning of the 15th, delegates will also have the opportunity to visit the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester, where there will be a demonstration of the sound facilities. Highlights this year’s event include the keynote speech by Dennis Baxter (pictured), sound designer of the 2012 Olympics and a five-time Emmy Award winner, who will speak on The Sound of Entertainment. “We are thrilled that Dennis will be joining us to share his unassailable understanding of practical sound design for TV and to help us cement the merging of theory and practice in entertainment sound, which is at the heart of this year’s conference, “ said Malpas. “Reproduced Sound conferences have always represented the cutting edge of modern audio and acoustics in an informal environment where attendees freely mingle and welcome the sharing of insight and information. “Over the years they’ve become firmly established as a ‘must attend’ event for many people from a wide background in acoustics and audio sectors, from acoustic scientists to audio system designers, and from consulting engineers to venue operators, to name just a few, and this year’s conference promises to be one of the best yet.”
