Verband Deutscher Tonmeister (VDT; the Association of German Sound Engineers) in the last week of September published the preliminary programme for the 28th Tonmeistertagung.
The biannual pro-audio convention will this year take place from 20–23 November at the Congress-Centrum Nord, Koelnmesse.
“This time, our programme is particularly comprehensive, and we have gained an extraordinary number of international speakers,” explains Günther Theile, head of programme planning for the event. The focus for Tonmeistertagung 2014 is on current trends such as networked audio, object-based recording and live event recording, with “lectures, workshops and tutorials [examining] all aspects of the specific subject”.
“Another area of focus is 3D audio, for which we have arranged plenty of demonstrations in rooms equipped with excellent technology,” adds Theile. “Loudness normalisation is another core topic; this year we are looking at its introduction to radio, and matters of practical implementation.”
To view the programme, which comprises nearly 100 lectures, 30 poster presentations, 35 workshops, 10 round tables, a ‘TMT Academy’ aimed at young talent and several tutorials, visit the Tonmeistertagung website.
