The Future of Audio for Television
Sound Sound for broadcast television has been a reality since 1996, when the first digital signal was sent over the air with high-definition picture and digtial sound.  Yes, it has been 20 years since this new broadcast standard has been adopted in the United States and now the industry is again reinventing the delivery of picture and sound.

Dolby Laboratories' surround codec (AC-3) was chosen by the ATSC and approved by the FCC as the broadcast audio standard in 1996. Since that time, technology has advanced that now allows for improved sound and picture with advanced features including support for immersive sound along with enabling viewers, for example to personalize their experience through the use of audio presentations.

Added presenter not included in the May newsletter:  Robert Bleidt is Division General Manager of Fraunhofer USA Digital Media Technologies. He is the inventor of the award-winning Sonnox/Fraunhofer codec plug-in, widely used in music mastering, led the extension of Fraunhofer's codec business to a open-source model by inclusion in Android, and developed Fraunhofer's Symphoria automotive audio business. Before joining Fraunhofer, he was president of Streamcrest Associates, a product and business strategy consulting firm in new media technologies. Previously, he was Director of Product Management and Business Strategy for the MPEG-4 business of Philips Digital Networks and managed the development of Philips' Emmy-winning asset management system for television broadcasting.
