EBU, Geneva

Next Generation Audio (NGA), and subtypes such as object-based audio (OBA), offer elegant solutions to a number of problems faced by media organizations. NGA programme material is multi-purpose and adaptable, freeing broadcasters from the need to produce several versions of a programme, and allowing receiving devices to render a suitable output for any given playback system and environment. NGA enables access services, such as for the hearing-impaired, abridgeable or 'flex-time' audio content, immersive audio, and more. It can also help to significantly reduce data-rates.

On the agenda

  • NGA workflows: what is possible and how to make it happen
  • NGA in the real-world: the goods, and what it took to deliver them
  • NGA ecosystems: a market overview
  • Experiencing NGA: Demonstrations of recent productions
  • The future of NGA: a round table discussion
