Detroit Section Meeting Notice
James M. Totten
Test Materials Advisor
Central Region Governor
Our October 23 program (2 weeks later than our usual meeting day) deals with correction and maintenance of proper lip sync, an issue that, in analog days, meant proper threading of a film projector! The use of multiple digital processing devices in both video and audio paths provide myriad ways for the two to get out of sync, with the result annoying to viewers. John Alexenko of K-WILL Corporation will discuss this topic, and demonstrate the QMAX-2000, which analyzes and corrects for lip-sync timing errors. Q&A to follow.
An article related to this topic. Managing Lip Sync appears in the September Broadcast Engineering magazine print and online editions. http://broadcastengineering.com/audio/broadcasting_managing_lip_sync/ index.html
John Alexenko has been with K-WILL for over three years. He has over 25 years of experience in television and video transmissions. Previously, John worked in satellite transmission at Hughes Communications where he helped test the first transmissions for DirecTV, and at Tandberg Television on the first live MPEG-2 sports feed from the Nagano Olympics. He holds a BSEE from Indiana State University and an MBA from Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles.
Managers' Dinner will be at 5:30 PM at Steak & Ale, 27590 Orchard Lake Rd. (at 12 Mile & I-696) Farmington Hills. (Map) A discounted menu is available before 6pm. All are welcome to join us.
