The AES UK Section’s A4V: Audio for Visuals one-day symposium will take place at the National Film and Television School in Beaconsfield this Saturday (5 Feb), with speakers including Scott Talbott from BBC Studios and Post Production.

Aimed at audio engineers seeking to broaden their reach, A4V will feature a host of high-profile speakers drawn from the worlds of broadcasting and post-production.

In addition to Talbott – who will give the presentation on Audio for Live TV – speakers at A4V will include Tim Carroll (CEO, Linear Acoustic), Ian Rosam (Video Sound Services), Ray Gillon (G-Minor), Leonard Paul (Lotus Audio), Toby Alington (Richmond Studios Productions), Richard Yeoman-Clark (British Film Institute) and Rowan de Pomerai (BBC R&D).

Topics will include sound design for games, the restoration of archive material, and maintaining audio/video synchronisation in a broadcast environment.

Bill Foster, chair of the AES UK Section, commented: “A4V is aimed at audio engineers seeking to broaden their horizons and students wishing to get a flavour of the wide range of visuals-related disciplines that make up today’s audio industry. All the speakers are experienced practitioners in their respective fields and where possible they will be demonstrating examples of their work.”
