The Institute of Acoustics has announced the programme for the Reproduced Sound 2016 conference, to be held at the Holiday Inn, Southampton, Hants on 15-17 November, in association with the ISCE, AES, ABTT and APRS.

Entitled Sound with Pictures – time is of the essence, it will focus on “all aspects” of electro-acoustics for cinema, TV and the internet, says the IoA.

Sessions over the three days include ‘Stadium sound systems and FiFA regulations’, ‘Turning up the background noise: the effects of salient non-speech audio elements on dialogue intelligibility in complex acoustic scenes’, ‘Investigations into the impact on STI of changes to the specified male speech spectrum’, and ‘Who needs Class D? How to make ultra- efficient linear amplifiers. Matching the amplifier to the audio for highly efficient amplifiers’.

There is a visit to Southampton Solent University on the evening of 17 November, and a trip to the ISVR (Institute of Sound and Vibration Research) at Southampton Uni on 18 November.

IoA members should register by logging into the members’ section of the Institute website. Non-members should register by clicking here.
