CEDIA has announced Richard Hollinshead of Meridian and Stephen Auld of Dolby Europe as the keynote speakers of its upcoming Tech Forums, which will take place at the Hilton in Bristol (20th April) and the Novotel London West (17th May).
Richard, Chief Technical Officer of Meridian, will present a seminar on High Res Audio at the Bristol Event. He will outline the science behind the concept and explain how installers can deliver premium audio quality for clients in a range of different room settings.
Stephen, Senior Manager of Broadcast and Licensing at Dolby Europe, will discuss Dolby Vision, a new television platform offering High Dynamic Range (HDR) at the London event.
Stephen will discuss the key features and benefits of HDR technology which includes dramatic imaging, the darkest blacks and the widest array of colours ever seen on home TVs.
CEDIA’s Operations Director Matt Nimmons commented: “We are delighted to welcome Richard and Stephen as our keynote speakers at these first two Tech Forums of the year. High Res Audio and High Dynamic Range are two major technology trends driving our industry.
These talks will allow home technology professionals a rare insight into the thinking of leading brands in both fields which will help to deepen their understanding and add value to their businesses.”
