Audio and Music

The right audio makes experiences real. That’s why it’s so important to movies, concert recordings, AR/VR experiences and more. We’ll explore everything from the technical advances to theoretical applications to sonic visualization, led by a lineup of fascinating scientists, professors, audio engineers and artists!

Cinema

Netflix streams movies and TV shows to millions of viewers every day. Movies and TV shows are stories told through machines. As both a tech company and a studio, Netflix is uniquely positioned to be a leader in both creative storytelling and technology opportunities, such as 4K, HDR, and immersive audio, and protecting creative intent all the way to the playback device. Chris Clark, RIT alumnus and Manager of Imaging Technology at Netflix, will walk through his team’s mission of empowering creatives with technology, protecting the fidelity and longevity of their work, and what that means for the filmmakers and consumers.

Department of Defense

There will be multiple branches of the armed forces participating at the LSI Conference. They’re looking for technology to make the warfighter and missions successful. We’ll have sessions that dial in on today’s near-term requirements…and brainstorm future possibilities.

Optics | Photonics | Imaging

From new optics manufacturing technologies to sensors for biological, chemical and physical stimuli to freeform optics and big data applications, we’re taking a closer look at today’s imaging tech and how it affects the world around us! This track is what Light & Sound Interactive is all about…and Rochester is the epicenter.
