Predictable Performance

AES3 (2-channel digital audio), AES10 (MADI), AES14 (analog XLR pin-out) - AES Standards have improved your workflow, and possibly saved your production, more times than you realize. AES Standards bring the industry's engineering teams together to insure peak performance and interoperability.

Special Publications

Providing a forum for new ideas, as a vehicle for the dissemination, application and implementation of leading-edge research, as archivists of the sum total of audio knowledge, the AES is the global authority in the audio sciences.


Open Access

A growing number of countries require Open Access to the results of publicly-funded research. After surveying AES authors it was found that a majority were interested in having the option of publishing their work in Open Access (OA). Authors who choose this option will receive greater visibility and ease of access to their AES publications.
