Full conference attendees to this years Surround 3003 Conference have the opportunity to be part of four real-world case study sessions focusing on Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, The X Games, and the forthcoming Tom Cruise film The Last Samurai.
Its been more than 20 years since the bands broke up, but Led Zeppelin continues to prove its staying power and relevance with what may be the DVD release of the year. The Making of Led Zeppelin will offer an inside scoop on how the bands vintage performances were turned into DVD gold. The session will allow attendees to see and hear before and after examples of the classic songs and performances.
In Surround On TV The X Games, Ron Scalise, a consultant for ESPN remote audio operations, will describe the surprisingly sophisticated audio techniques used for the X Games.
In The Making of The Last Samurai, Mark P. Stoeckinger of Soundelux describes the process of creating the sound for a current major studio blockbuster release and the critical role of surround audio.
And, finally, every new technology requires a rethinking of its marketing techniques, and multichannel audio is no exception. In the Rolling Stones Live Licks session, attendees can follow the marketing campaign of the four-disc Rolling Stones Live Licks tour DVD boxed set, and analyze the reasoning and results behind its Best Buy exclusive offering. The session will be moderated by Medialine editor Larry Jaffee with panelists who include Steve Klineberg of TGA Entertainment and David Anthony of Metropolis DVD.
