Special demonstrations, talks, presentations and events with top speakers Here is a small selection:


BR, WDR and IRT present state-of-the-art audio technology at the HIGH END Conference room K2A (opposite Hall 1)

Radio in the digital age: 90 years after it was introduced, radio broadcasting uses the full range of digital possibilities. With digital production and broadcasting technology, optimum studio quality can now be delivered directly to living rooms, cars and mobile devices. Bayerischer Rundfunk, Westdeutscher Rundfunk and the Institut für Rundfunktechnik, the joint research centre of ARD/ZDF, ORF and SRG, will be demonstrating the variety and quality of radio programmes and technology for the first time together this year at the HIGH END.

In an acoustically optimised demonstration room (K2A), visitors can look forward to exhibits, demonstrations and information all about audio technology, production, distribution and audio quality.

Sound engineers from BR and WDR will be presenting highlights from the latest music productions and radio plays in studio quality, in 5.1 Surround Sound or binaurally on headphones. DAB+, DVB-C and internet digital broadcasting will all be available for direct comparison. In a listening booth, you can judge the quality of audio codecs and data rates in a MUSHRA test.

Other topics: The importance of EBU R128 loudness regulation and the work, this involves when remastering archive material. Exhibits on HTML5 Audio and Binaural Room Synthesis give an insight into the latest research and an outlook on forthcoming developments.

As well as this: at the BR stand in Hall 2 R06 there is a car where you can listen to DAB+ digital radio and the Symphoria audio system developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits in Erlangen.

Listen to the original master files of a recording session, just like the sound engineer. This is as close it gets to the original recording.


Conference room K1b (opposite Hall 1)

Andreas Koch from the USA, one of the inventors of the DSD high-definition digital audio format and owner of Playback Designs, Joachim Kiesler from Saxony, professional re- cording engineer and mastermind of Musikelectronic Geithain, and Primephonic, the new Dutch download portal, have got together to set up a very special joint venture. The aim   is not only to show interested visitors the musical potential of the DSD format, but also to demonstrate the current state of the art in DSD downloading, not just in stereo, but above all in multi-channel audio.

The presentations will be given by the leading European sound engineers Erdo Groot (direc- tor, producer and sound engineer of Polyhymnia B.V.), Jared Sacks (director, producer and sound engineer of Channel Classics B.V.) and Jan-Eric Persson (sound engineer and founder of Opus3 Records). As well as this, the engineers and producers will be presenting their recordings and talking about their experience with DSD.

The subject of DSD mastering of analogue multi-channel tapes will also be discussed. Visitors are sure to prick up their ears at the demonstrations of legendary recordings from the Quadro era of the 1970s.
