Neural Audio and THX Ltd. will provide surround sound technology for the first surround broadcast from the Aspen Music Festival and School.
The classical concert will be produced as a two-hour special on the Classical Public Radio Network; the first broadcast is Aug. 16.
“The surround presentation will be rebroadcast several times during the year over the Classical Public Radio Network’s 60-station national network serving over 1 million listeners weekly,” the companies said. “This Aspen Music Festival broadcast event closely follows the inaugural broadcast of surround classical music content on CPRN using Neural-THX Surround as its main surround broadcast technology.”
CPRN is a national classical format established by KUSC Los Angeles and Colorado Public Radio with startup funding from CPB; it has a collaborative marketing arrangement with NPR.
