NEW YORK� The broadcast and streaming audio platform evolution and convergence will be on display at this year Broadcast and Streaming Track during the 137th Audio Engineering Society Convention, Oct. 9- 12, 2014, at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Streaming Track Chairman David Bialik has identified trends and assembled a series of panels that will explore and discuss these topics. The presentations include:

� Loudness for Streaming and Radio� Audio Issues for 4k and 8k Television� Facility Design� Audio Issues and HTML5� Routing Audio in a Broadcast Facility� Listener Fatigue and Retention� Hear Now/Sound Effects� SBE/Troubleshooting and Maintenance of Equipment� Troubleshooting Software� Compliance with CALM Act/PLOUD� The Streaming Experience� Telephony and IP Codecs: How to Choose What Is Best for You� Understanding Audi0 Processing: How to Use the Audio Processor� MPEG-DASH: What about Audio?

Attendees at these sessions will also have the opportunity to look at facility design through the eyes of Eddie Kramer, engineer/producer for such legendary acts as Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin and Kiss, and the Walters-Storyk Design Group''s studio designer John Storyk. They will be there to discuss how KEPX(FM) in Seattle and KPFK(FM) in Los Angeles, are managing changes.

�The AES Tracks, Sessions and Workshops are about learning �Technology and Technique,'' while the sales presentations stay on the exhibition floor. I believe this is the reason that the attendance for the �Broadcast and Streaming'' sessions only increases year after year,� said David Bialik.
