HiRes Audio Pioneers To Speak at New CES 2014 TECH ZONE
The pioneers of audiophile-quality, high resolution digital music will speak at the International CES 2014 in Las Vegas providing information and insights into this rapidly growing market.
On January 7, 2014 audio pioneer and 5-time Grammy nominated engineer, Cookie Marenco, is scheduled to appear on two panels in the new HiRes Tech Zone and with Indiegogo in a press conference titled “How Indiegogo Will Save an Old Dying Industry”.
Marenco has played a pivotal role in the creation and distribution of high-resolution audio recordings using a breakthrough digital format called Direct Stream Digital (DSD). Her company, Blue Coast Records http://bluecoastrecords.com, became the first company to commercially release DSD downloads in 2010 at a time when mainstream listeners had turned their back on good quality audio.
The consumer demand for Direct Stream Digital has since encouraged more than 100 hardware and software companies to create new devices for this growing market. By September 2013, Sony had announced the release of a new product line to support Hi-Res Audio. Blue Coast Records is one of six content partners with Sony.
“It's all about the experience,”
The first panel entitled: " Welcome to the Hi-Res Music World, 1-2pm, January 7" will feature Marenco, Alex Pham (Billboard), Jim Belcher (Universal Music Group); Mark Piibe (Sony Music Entertainment)
The second panel is “Meet the Hi-Res Music Creators,”. This session is scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 7, from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. Along with Marenco panelists include Elliot Scheiner, producer, mixer and engineer at ELS Surround; Allen Sides, engineer and producer at Ocean Way Recording; John Newton, founder and president of Soundmirror;
Indiegogo (a popular crowdfunding organization)
The press conference will be held the morning of January 7, 2014 at 7:30 - 8:30 a.m. in the Venetian Marcello Room 4503. Larry Ho and Gavin Fish (Light Harmonic), Kate Drane (Indiegogo) and Jude Mansilla (Head-Fi.org)
A recent interview with National Public Radio (NPR) highlights Marenco’s efforts for advancing Hi-Res Audio. It has become a primer for those interested to learn more about better quality audio.
About Cookie: Cookie Marenco is a five-time Grammy nominee and recipient of 2 Gold Records. She has recorded more than 400 music albums and is a former A&R representative for Windham Hill Records where she produced Winter Solstice 2, Windham Hill’s biggest selling album.
