Trust your ears! The quest for the optimum (digital) audio representation
Claude Cellier, President & CEO of Merging Technologies was invited for a Distingushed Lecture at the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Music Media and Technology (CIRMMT) in Montreal.
This presentation reviews some of the formidable changes the audio industry underwent over the last couple of decades with a focus on the challenges that still lie ahead of us, as the human ear somehow remarkably seems to behave beyond the commonly accepted limits of the auditory model. While audio capture, storage and reproduction systems get closer and closer to measurable transparency, there still seems to be an elusive part that remains unmeasurable and defies basic Cartesian engineering. Further research in the subtleties our auditory system is able to discern is highly welcome if we want to narrow the gap between certainty and guesswork.
Best technical achievement prize at the Heavent Paris Grand Prize for 'La Fête des Vignerons'
Many congratulations to DUSHOW for winning the Heavent Paris Grand Prize for Technical Achievement for the Fêtes des Vignerons event in Vevey, Switzerland.
Pyramix and Horus converters were chosen for the music recording and mixing prior to the event. The Ovation show sequencer was used to provide the master timecode to run all the action and effects for the whole show which was enjoyed by 20,000 people on each night. Ovation provided all the audio cues and event triggers for the cast of 5,500 and was set up to be fully redundant. You will not be surprised to know this was never needed!
