Venue: Eng. 2.09 Engineering Building, Queen Mary University of London, Mile End Road, London, E1 4NSRichard Foss of Rhodes University will present a seminar on "The delights and dilemmas associated with sending audio over networks" in ENG 2.09 (the Engineering building) at Queen Mary University of London, Mile End Road, London E1 4NS.
Abstract: Audio networks hold out the promise of distributing audio over large distances, sharing audio resources, and allowing for precise and simple audio device connection management and control. It was with this somewhat starry eyed viewpoint that we embarked on a project to share campus music resources. This talk will describe these initial attempts, and then describe the path we have taken, together with others in the field, to research and implement methods for transporting, controlling and synchronizing audio on networks.
Bio: Richard Foss is an Associate Professor in the Computer Science Department at Rhodes University. He has an audio networking research group at Rhodes University. The group works in close association with the professional audio industry. He was co-author of the AES64 connection management and control protocol and is chair of the AES audio networking working group.
