133rd AES Convention Heyser Lecture to be Given by JJ Johnston
San Francisco - Oct 23, 2012 - An innovative and highly respected pro audio doyen James D. JJ Johnston, will present the 133rd AES Convention Heyser Lecture. Scheduled for Saturday evening, Oct. 27 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. at the Moscone Center, Johnston's lecture is entitled "Audio, Radio, Acoustics and Signal Processing - The Way Forward."
This presentation will explore the current understanding of human auditory perception, and reveal how the way we actually work encourages a dichotomy of knowledge that no longer exists. Johnston will propose educational methods designed to amalgamate artistic and technical approaches; and techniques for applying some of the technical expertise we've acquired on the artistic side in order to better understand what the artistic side of the business needs and desires.
Currently an independent consultant, JJ Johnston recently retired from his position as chief scientist for DTS. In that role, he contributed to a variety of acoustical modeling, preprocessing and post-processing algorithms for audio capture, analysis, control, and presentation. He served in a similar capacity at Neural Audio, and as an audio architect for the codecs, core media processing, and video services groups of Microsoft. He previously worked with AT&T Labs Speech Processing Software and Technology Research Department and with AT&T Bell Laboratories' Acoustics Research and Signal Processing Research Departments.
