      SMPTE Keynote: Video from the Depths and The New Era of Immersive Exploration Dr. Robert Ballard and the Ocean Exploration Trust Broadcast Team

      What if you could explore anywhere in the world in real-time from your living room? World-renowned oceanographer and explorer Dr. Robert Ballard believes that day is almost here, and will take you to the seafloor as a start. Famed as the discoverer of the Titanic shipwreck, Ballard has spent his career exploring under the sea and now with the team from Ocean Exploration Trust, equipped with immersive cameras, remotely-operated deep-diving vehicles, telepresence, and seafaring broadcast tools onboard Exploration Vessel Nautilus, exploration has entered a new era. In this world-premiere, live-to-tape Silicon Valley Video Summit SMPTE Keynote, Ballard explains his vision for how video offers new potential for real-time exploration as education and entertainment, while the Ocean Exploration Trust team, takes the stage for a technology “deep dive” on how the ship’s scientific control room and studio connect scientists, students, and everyday explorers to the world of discovery and exploration.

      *NOTE: The SMPTE Keynote series at Silicon Valley Video Summit was developed to introduce students to career opportunities in video and broadcast. Join this event to learn about paid at-sea internship opportunities with Ocean Exploration Trust. Last year’s inaugural keynote speaker was Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple Computer.

      Automating Creative-Driven Soundtrack Versioning Using Advanced Loudness Optimization

      Skywalker Sound has created the Coda Platform to intelligently convert a completed soundtrack to fit distribution pipeline needs, while preserving the original intent of the content creators. A core technology within the platform we will discuss is content-aware loudness and dynamic range optimization processing; perceptually maintaining original mix balance and impact while conforming to multiple loudness targets; device profiles; and consumer listening needs. This proprietary technology serves as a new method towards specification compliance, strikingly distinct from legacy audio approaches such as compressors and limiters.
      Intro: Erik Foreman, Post-Production Mixer
      Speaker: Nicolas Tsingos, Skywalker Sound, Principal Research Engineer

      6-Degree-of-Freedom Immersive Audio for Broadcast and Linear Media

      Professional and consumer audio technology has progressed over the past few decades along several parallel threads – including sensory immersion, electronic transmission, content formats and creation tools. In a not-too-distant future, the authoring, consumption, or performance of a significant portion of our media and music experiences might leverage a global set of frameworks and ecosystems, sometimes referred to as the Metaverse. In time, more and more of our media experiences (currently categorized into separate content industries such as music, movies, and podcasts) may be cloud-based, navigable, non-destructive, ubiquitous, interoperable, and adaptable to listener conditions. In this talk, we distill elements of this vision and some of the opportunities and challenges that it entails for technologists and creators, including the adoption of a streamable immersive audio scene coding model, and “externalized” binaural audio reproduction.

      Stop Riding the Remote! Fixing the Loudness Problem for Streaming

      As we go full circle back to ads in paid content, it is critical to make sure your viewers stay engaged instead of getting distracted by wildly changing audio levels. This becomes even more critical with dialog enhancement for an aging population and audio description for viewers with accessibility needs. Media Turners’ David Frerichs will walk us through how to address these challenges across multiple audio formats.

      Networking for Production: AoIP/AES67/Dante

      For remote live events including concerts, corporate events, and sports (either broadcast or live streaming), many advances have been made in the last three to five years. Simplification on security of data over long distances can be achieved with smaller teams and producers/directors/mixers across various remote locations. Join Sam Craig & Patrick Killianey for discussion on just how quickly you could have your live events up and functioning across long distances, securely.

      Integrating SMPTE 2110 in Virtual Production

      The production industry is slowly but surely adopting the SMPTE ST 2110 standard as the way of the future. The flexibility and scalability of a transport stream infrastructure over a standard video workflow presents many advantages. What does adoption of 2110 mean for Virtual Production with LED Volumes? What are the benefits, and can it be implemented for any environment?
