CEDIA has scheduled a new webinar that will educate attendees on how to add high-res audio to a business’s offerings.
Hosted by Rich Green, the webinar titled “Success with High-Resolution Audio Sources: From Bits to DACS to Dollars” will be held on May 18 at 1 p.m. EDT / 10 a.m. PDT. This free one-hour webinar will give attendees a jumping-off point for creating revenue from projects that feature high-res audio.
In promoting the webinar, CEDIA noted that “high resolution audio digs us out of the MP3 mud and gets us closer to CD quality, with 24-bit and 96kHz files (even 192kHz in some cases).”
With evangelists like music legend Neil Young, who is said to be “spearheading” a cloud-based high-resolution audio system, we could see this appreciation grow a new crop of audiophiles. Of course, high-res audio files aren’t lightweights when it comes to file size, and all this data has to be stored somewhere – and it has to be pumped through speakers. New kinds of hardware like asynchronous USB DACs and NAS hard drive storage will present new engineering challenges.
But, according to CEDIA, “the opportunity is clear: Hi-res audio will give enterprising electronic systems contractors the opportunity to make their clients fall in love with music all over again.”
The webinar will instruct attendees to master the new challenges presented by hi-res audio, and to deliver systems that make the most of these sources, from multi-channel music and concerts on Blu-ray to hi-res music downloads.
