AES 133rd Convention Broadcast/Streaming Chair David Bialik

AES Convention Offers Expanded Broadcast, Streaming Media Sessions The Audio Engineering Society has announced Broadcast and Streaming Media Sessions for the 133rd AES Convention, which takes place October 26 to 29, 2012, in San Francisco at the Moscone Convention Center.

“Back for his 26th consecutive turn as Broadcast/Streaming Chair, David Bialik [pictured] consistently develops meaningful sessions which literally pack the halls,” says Committee Co-Chair, Jim McTigue. “We count on David to deliver high-level, entertaining and informative presentations that keep attendees coming back year after year.”

“Our goal is to provide meaningful information in the most accessible format,” Bialik says. “We make a special effort to develop mini-tracks focused on topic-related issues. For example, attendees will find groupings of events on Troubleshooting, and Audio for TV, Radio and Streaming, which are virtually crash courses on these issues. And we stress the point that these events are discussions of technologies and techniques—not sales presentations. The AES Convention continues to serve as an essential destination for the serious audio professional.”
