Wednesday — April 1, 2015, 2pm, WEBCAST: Sound Quality for Networked Audio
Why is the critical speech intelligibility of audio networks so frequently compromised? Moving signal from point A to point B is never enough—clarity and intelligibility are the core requirements of any network. In this webcast, internationally recognized expert and educator John Storyk will focus on the sending and the receiving ends of any networked audio environment and how to improve the listening/communication experience in workplace, educational and recreational spaces.
This webcast will cover:
-Acoustic fundamentals and why they matter
-System organization and optimization
-Conferencing and presentation
-Content capture best practices
-Playback accuracy – speaker placement / microphone placement
-Architecture and ergonomics
-Noise/quietness and reflection/absorption
-Internal room responsiveness
-Speech vs. music
-Audio processing (what is it? How can it be fixed, what are its limitations?)
