Abstract. The speaker will describe some of his experiences implementing advanced mathematical signal processing techniques into the professional entertainment industry over the past 35 years. Dr. Moorer has worked at Lucasfilm, Pixar, Sonic Solutions, and is now part of the Dynamic Media division of Adobe Systems. His contributions to the industry have included the development of the digital audio workstation starting with "Return of the Jedi", noise reduction techniques first used in the film "Amadeus" and subsequently used to restore thousands of vintage recordings, and generally including advances in analysis and processing of audio that have become commonplace in both the professional and consumer entertainment industry today. This talk will also include some projections into the future based on the speaker's experience.
