Workshop: Audio in Advanced Digital Age?

A workshop organized by Research Axis 1 (Instruments, devices and systems).

Audio in Advanced Digital Age 


Registration is required. To register, please visit: Workshop: Audio in advanced digital age - REGISTRATION


Analog and digital audio are intertwined, perhaps forever, as sound is analog in nature. Processing and storing sound is best accomplished in digital domain. Therefore, digital audio must achieve the highest transparency and transformability yet retain all attributes of the original analog sound, as well as the sound optimized for communication. The presenters will discuss select manifestations of the advancements in digital audio, and in analog systems, to help us answer the question in the title of the workshop.
