News Image
A Digital Audio Pioneer, Director of Engineering for 25-Seven Systems and Contributing Columnist for Radio World Engineering Extra magazine, will deliver the opening keynote speech at the NAB Broadcast Engineering Conference on Sunday 11th April at 9am.
Dr Barry Blesser, who has served as a technical and management consultant for the past 40 years to more than 50 high-tech companies, will provide insight on the broadcast engineering profession and its next generation of leaders.
"Barry Blesser is one of the true original pioneers in digital audio technology," said NAB Senior Vice President of Science and Technology Lynn Claudy. "As leading broadcast engineers, media professionals and technicians from around the world gather for the NAB Show's engineering conference this spring, we look forward to hearing Dr Blesser's insightful thoughts on the future of the broadcast engineering profession."
As a former professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a founder of digital audio, Blesser has spent his four decade career working at the junction of audio, acoustics, perception and cognitive psychology. From the start of his academic career at MIT in 1969, Blesser was a leading pioneer of digitised audio. He developed the first commercial digital reverberation system for the German company Elektro-Mess-Technik (EMT), helped found Lexicon and has developed audio products for Orban and many others.

 Blesser is one of the founders and currently serves as Director of Engineering at 25-Seven Systems, which specialises in audio technologies for more efficient and profitable radio operations.
He is the Co-Author of the recent book Spaces Speak, Are you Listening? Experiencing Aural Architecture, which examines auditory spatial awareness as an interdisciplinary exploration of architecture, music, acoustics, evolution, anthropology, cognitive psychology and audio engineering. He also writes The Last Word column for Radio World Engineering Extra, uniquely blending topics in radio broadcast engineering with a variety of other scientific disciplines.
