International Conference on Audio Networking


As I'm sure you know, one of the primary research areas in the CineGrid community is professional media networking. Every year at the Workshop, we have several sessions devoted to ultra-high-definition streaming video, with ever higher bandwidths and more distant sources. However, integrating audio into this equation has proven difficult for many. In fact, one of the comments I often hear among people developing media networking systems is how hard it is to deal with both video and audio in a single stream. For those of you interested in this important topic, I'd like to tell you about an upcoming event.Audio Engineering Society

This November 18-20, 2011 the Audio Engineering Society is holding an international conference on the topic of Audio Networking in San Diego, CA.
