The event will also include a special luncheon panel discussion moderated by CE Pro’s Jason Knott discussing immersive audio technology, in particular Dolby Atmos. Panelists include Craig Eggers, senior director of home theater for Dolby Labs; Matt Schuler of Klipsch; Keith Haas of Integra; Rob Sample of Anthem and Paradigm; and Brandon Cook of Audiocontrol.
