About the event

Following on from the Introduction to Bluetooth Low Energy online SIG event on the 27th October, this SIG offering a new online training concept  for CW – the guided masterclass, starting with a deep dive into the new Bluetooth Low Energy Audio specifications.  This is a 90 minute online masterclass, where delegates have the opportunity to shape the agenda in advance, and participate in audio Q&A sessions at the end of each section of the presentation.

Led by Nick Hunn, a Cambridge Wireless SIG champion, who has been involved in the LE Audio specification development from its start, the Deep Dive will take you through the following topics:

  • Session 1:'LE Audio – What’s new?' - to include,The background to LE Audio; New Concepts and Architecture.
  • Session 2: 'The Nitty Gritty' and will explore; Isochronous Channels and Bluetooth 5.2; Building up and using Audio Streams and Top level profiles.
  • Session 3: 'Changing the way we use audio' which will cover; The new topologies; The impact of broadcast; Personal and private audio and Market timescales.

The aim of the Deep Dive is to guide delegates through the complexity of the new specifications, explaining how they work and fit together, as well as highlighting the potential opportunities.  It is of interest to anyone involved in wireless audio product development, or in the way that our use of voice and music is changing, as technology offers new ways to communicate and consume audio content.

Upon registration, delegates will be asked to rank their preferences and specify any area which they would like to be covered in more detail, as well as supply questions for the live Q&A sessions.  This feedback will be used to structure the masterclass and the group discussions.
