First Live 5.1 Broadcast Will Be Described at AES

First Live 5.1 Broadcast Will Be Described at AES

Mike Pappas of KUVO(FM) in Denver is the latest addition to a panel on surround sound for digital radio at next week’s AES show in San Francisco.
Pappas said he will discuss his station’s Sept. 24 concert, which, as Radio World Online reported here last month, the station believes was the first live HD Radio broadcast in 5.1. KUVO also is Colorado’s first public station to convert to HD Radio (see Radio World, Oct. 6.)
Pappas and the station broadcast the Colorado Symphony Orchestra with Grammy winner Dianne Reeves. They used a Harris/Neural NeuStar audio processor and two Neural 5225s, a 5.1 system watermarked downmix system that creates a compatible stereo signal.
“The watermarked stereo it creates is just amazing,” Pappas said.
The panel is Saturday Oct. 30. Moderated by Emil Torick, it includes speakers from Telos/Omnia, Dolby Labs, Ibiquity, Orban, SRS Labs, XM Satellite and Neural Audio.
