The organiser of the Broadcast Video Expo (BVE) has vowed to increase the focus on audio content at the 2015 at ExCeL London next month.
The move comes after the show was made aware of a “perceived lack of audio coverage” at last year’s event.
“To strengthen our audio offering at BVE 2015, we have created a multi-theatre approach to delivering seminar sessions and training master classes in audio,” says Sindy Cain, senior content manager at i2i Events Group.
Malcolm Johnson, head of the secretariat of the Institute of Professional Sound, has been added to its advisory panel to “ensure what we [BVE] deliver provides insight, solutions and a platform to networking and exchange ideas for audio professionals.”
Johnson highlights the two most important issues present in broadcast audio as the universal adoption of loudness and the R128 format, as well as embracing new networking technologies. Those attending can expect these issues to be tackled throughout various seminars.
The event, which will be held from 24–26 February, will offer a range of seminars, including The Future of Radio and Insight into Testing Surround Sound, Live Classical Music Meets Broadcast Audio, Self-Shooters and Good Sound on a Budget.
Alison Willis, newly appointed event director following the departure of James Rowley-Ashwood to PLASA (pictured above right), added: “It’s increasingly important to have an event where people from all areas can come together to discuss their experiences, share their knowledge and learn from each other, and our aim with BVE is to ask the right questions and bring in experts who can answer them.”
