Today’s generation, bought up on iTunes, MP3 players, You Tube and satellite television may never have experienced the full fidelity of an uncompressed audio recording; but how can you get 3,000 songs in a smartphone without some compromise?

 

Join us for the July meeting of the San Francisco section of SMPTE, in conjunction with our colleagues from the local AES chapter, when, with a panel of audio experts, we debate the pros and cons of compression schemes for audio.

 

Our panelists, Robert Bleight from Fraunhofer, Craig Eggers from Dolby, Pete Soper from Meyer sound, moderated by Tom Scott, from Onstream Media, will be taking the stage at Meyer Sound in Emeryville on the evening of July 18th, starting at 6:30pm. Come and hear their points of view, and express your own if you wish. A lively evening is in store.
