Emerging Technology, Surround Professional 2003

HighFidelityReview reports from the ‘Future of Surround’ panel & New Technologies Forum held at the Surround Professional 2003 Conference and Technology Showcase where subjects such as hybrid DVD-Audio discs and Super Audio CD version two (SACD 2) were discussed & new products from Minnetonka Software, SRS Labs, Dolby Laboratories and iBiquity Digital were demonstrated, where John Eargle of JBL Professional demonstrates his company’s Linear Spatial Reference active studio monitors.

Regardless of their ultimate fate in the fickle consumer marketplace, at this point both SACD and DVD-Audio are mature, established formats for production and delivery of multichannel music recordings.

Each format is currently being enhanced to address the respective limitations for which it is most commonly criticized: DVD-Audio’s lack of backward compatibility with CD players, and SACD’s lack of video content options. These developments were among the topics tackled in the ‘Future of Surround’ panel, moderated by Bobby Owsinski, Surround 2003 Conference Chairman and Managing Director/Executive Producer at Surround Associates. read more…
