Audio Engineering Society Honored with Technology & Engineering Emmy Award

Audio Engineering Society Honored with Technology & Engineering Emmy® Award

Audio Engineering Society Honored with Technology & Engineering Emmy® Award

 — The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) has honored AES for “Development of Synchronized multi-channel uncompressed audio transport over IP Networks” in the 71st annual Technology & Engineering Emmy® Awards —

The Audio Engineering Society (AES) has been named a recipient of a Technical & Engineering Emmy® Award for “Development of Synchronized multi-channel uncompressed audio transport over IP Networks.” The 71st annual Technical & Engineering Emmy Awards will be presented in a special ceremony at the upcoming NAB Show at the Wynn Encore Hotel and Spa on Sunday, April 19th, 2020, in Las Vegas, NV.

 

The distinction for “Development of Synchronized multi-channel uncompressed audio transport over IP Networks” cites the AES alongside ALC NetworX, Audinate, Kevin Gross, QSC, Telos Alliance and Wheatstone. AES’s AES67 standard for high-performance streaming audio-over-IP interoperability was introduced in 2013. AES67 compliance allows audio content interoperability between the proprietary IP-based audio networking protocols developed by the Emmy co-winners: RAVENNA, Dante, Q-Sys, Livewire+ and WheatNet-IP. Co-Emmy-winner and AES Fellow Kevin Gross led the AES67 Standards effort and is the chair of the AES Technical Committee on Network Audio Systems. “The improvement from audio networking born in the mid-1990s to new IP-based solutions emerged as a simultaneous invention from the honored companies,” says Gross. “While collectively this represented a technical improvement, interoperability was not addressed until the AES initiated the X192 project on audio interoperability. Thank you, Steve Church, Rich Zwiebel, Philip Lawo and Andreas Hildebrand – leaders at the honored companies who understood the potential for a standard to take audio networking to the next level – and thanks to then AES Standards Manager Mark Yonge, who mentored the standard process.”

 

The Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards are awarded to a living individual, a company, or a scientific or technical organization for developments and/or standardization involved in engineering technologies that either represent so extensive an improvement on existing methods or are so innovative in nature that they materially have affected television. A Committee of highly qualified engineers working in television considers technical developments in the industry and determines which, if any, merit an award.

 

Colleen Harper, AES Executive Director, remarks, “AES67 is an essential protocol that established a standardized language for audio transport, employed every day in the broadcast world and beyond. Its introduction in 2013 fundamentally changed the broadcast audio landscape and paved the way for recent similar developments for video, and we are honored to be awarded with a Technical & Engineering Emmy alongside our industry peers.”

Exhibitors Praise Success of AES New York 2019 Convention

Attendees gather at the opening of the AES New York 2019 Convention Exhibition Hall at the Jacob Javits Center on Wednesday, October 16, 20. AES New York 2019 featured 130 sessions hosted on the Exhibition Hall's Inspiration Stages and in its topical Theaters, alongside 236 brands showcasing their latest products and services, with total event registration once again topping 14,000

Attendees gather at the opening of the AES New York 2019 Convention Exhibition Hall at the Jacob Javits Center on Wednesday, October 16, 20. AES New York 2019 featured 130 sessions hosted on the Exhibition Hall's Inspiration Stages and in its topical Theaters, alongside 236 brands showcasing their latest products and services, with total event registration once again topping 14,000

The aisles were bustling, the booths packed, the energy and enthusiasm high as the attendees of AES New York 2019 surged into the Convention’s Exhibition Hall in October. Leading members of the professional audio community and exhibitors at the 147th AES Convention shared their thoughts on the event’s success. 


“AES was a tremendous event to be a part of as it has expanded its reach to a very diversified audience,” stated Antoine Ibrahim, communications manager for professional audio software developer iZotope. “During the show, we were able to connect with our valued customers as well as engage with professionals in all aspects of programming that have never gotten a first-hand look at our products. We were happy to be able to contribute and feel its success will only continue.”


Like iZotope, iconic microphone-maker Shure participated in providing technical content during the AES Convention along with its exhibition hall presence. “The AES Show proved again to be incredibly valuable for sharing ideas and best practices in audio,” commented Celino Ullegue, Shure Pro Audio’s senior marketing specialist. “From first-time student attendees to veteran engineers, we’re excited to support the audio community and look forward to AES New York 2020.” 


The Audio Engineering Society’s 2019 New York Convention’s registration exceeded 14,000, with a similar registration count for the co-located NAB Show New York 2019. The open access of registrants of either show to both exhibitions allowed content creation and media production professionals and future professionals to intermingle while exploring the latest offerings from hundreds of audio and visual media gear brands and service providers.


AES New York 2019 evidenced fruit of the Society’s ongoing outreach initiatives into underrepresented industry segments and genres. Focusrite Novation director of marketing Hanna Bliss expounds that “AES was a real success for Focusrite and Focusrite Pro because we were talking both to our existing customers about advancing their journey with us into new upgraded products or solutions, and to new customers by way of more women, more students, more non-traditional audio professionals. The crowd was more diverse and inclusive, and the shift towards a new wave of acceptance in the audio industry was visible, palpable, and encouraged.”


“Not only was traffic up, but there seemed to be a great deal of optimism. The students that came through were very inquisitive and interested, which alone made the AES show a worthwhile investment,” stated Gary Boss, Audio-Technica Marketing Director, Professional Markets.


Professional audio manufacturers choose the annual AES Convention to launch new products and make corporate announcements, as with Solid State Logic, which announced a new all-analog console, new U.S. operational management via distributor Group One Limited and the return of an industry veteran to work with the Group One team. “This year’s AES Show was significant for two reasons,” says Phil Wagner, now SSL’s North American-based senior vice president. “First, I’m pleased to return to my alma mater, SSL. Second, we specifically chose AES to introduce the new Origin Analog inline audio console because we knew it would be the perfect audience. This was truly the most exciting show ever; we had crowds around our booth from open to close.” 


Avid, who exhibited its hardware and production tools during AES New York, also welcomed over two dozen collaborators into the Avid Partner Pavilion in the Exhibition Hall. “This show enables us to engage with our customers, helping them better understand our portfolio, grow our business, launch new products, and showcase our developer partners,” stated Avid audio product evangelist Greg “Stryke” Chin. “Avid is proud to be an exhibitor and partner with AES and look forward to what’s to come!”


The 149th AES International Pro Audio Convention – AES New York 2020 – will return to the Javits Center October 21 to 24, 2020 (Exhibition October 21 – 23).

Survey on Micro Aggressions in the Studio — Invitation to Participate -- University of Lethbridge

 

Dear audio colleagues,

We are inviting you to participate in an anonymous online survey that aims to capture important demographic information about the audio industry, and recording producers and engineers’ experiences of discrimination and micro aggressions (defined as indirect, subtle, or unintentional discrimination against members of a marginalized group) within the studio. The survey is aimed towards individuals who during the last ten years have worked in music production as a recording producer, an engineer, a mastering engineer, or a studio assistant on other people’s music. The results from the study will be used for academic, educational and industry purposes. The survey should take about 20-30 minutes to complete and is divided into two parts.


Survey link: Bit.ly/microaggressions_in_audio


The survey will be available until December 20th and has been translated into nineteen languages. It can be accessed on your smartphone, tablet, or PC. Your responses to this survey will remain anonymous. Individual responses will not be able to be traced back to individual respondents. The anonymous data will be accessible only by our research team, select AES members who will assist in translation, and the survey administrators of the University of Lethbridge (Canada) who will all have signed a confidentiality agreement. There are minimal anticipated psychological and or emotional risks from taking part in this survey. You can stop answering questions at any time. You may withdraw your participation at any time by closing your browser. You are also free to answer or not answer any questions (other than the demographic data questions). Your data will be stored only once you submit your responses.


This study is being conducted by recording producer Dr. Amandine Pras and cultural sociologist Dr. Athena Elafros, both from the University of Lethbridge, in partnership with the AES Diversity and Inclusion Committee, and with the support of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC). The micro aggressions portions of the survey (including micro aggressions statements) are based upon previous peer-reviewed publications on micro aggressions in the workplace.


Even if you do not feel that you personally have experienced micro aggressions or discrimination, we still encourage you to respond. We also encourage you to share the survey link with your colleagues.

AES New York 2019 Convention Presents Best Peer-Reviewed and Student Paper Awards

JAES Editor Bozena Kostek with AES New York 2019 Papers Co-chairs Areti Andreopoulou and Braxton Boren presenting the Best Peer-Reviewed Paper Award to two of four authors of the paper, Ulrike Sloma and Stephan Werner

JAES Editor Bozena Kostek with AES New York 2019 Papers Co-chairs Areti Andreopoulou and Braxton Boren presenting the Best Peer-Reviewed Paper Award to two of four authors of the paper, Ulrike Sloma and Stephan Werner

— AES Best Papers Awards highlight top research and advancements in the field of audio engineering —

The winners of the Best Peer-Reviewed Paper and Best Student Paper presented during the recent AES New York 2019 Convention were announced in the Convention’s Opening Ceremonies on October 16 by Journal of the Audio Engineering Society Editor Bozena Kostek and 147th AES International Pro Audio Convention Papers Co-chairs Areti Andreopoulou and Braxton Boren. The awards highlight outstanding contributions from among the submissions of 100 authors from around the world covering the latest research on topics including Loudspeakers, Audio Quality, Applications, Spatial Audio, Processing, Perception, Audio Education and more.

 

This year’s Best Peer-Reviewed Paper Award goes to Ulrike Sloma, Florian Klein, Stephan Werner, and Tyson Pappachan Kannookadan for their paper “Synthesis of Binaural Room Impulse Responses for Different Listening Positions Considering the Source Directivity.”

 

Abstract:
A popular goal in research on virtual and augmented acoustic realities is the implementation of realistic room acoustics and sound source characteristics. Additionally, listeners want to move around, explore the virtual or augmented environments. One way to realize position-dynamic synthesis is the use of binaural technologies on the basis of real measurements. While this approach allows the successful reproduction of the real acoustic environment, many listening positions need to be measured. To reduce time and effort, new methods have been invented to calculate binaural room impulse responses from few positions. The presented work enhances existing synthesis methods by including predefined sound source directivities into calculation of binaural room impulse responses. The results are analyzed in a physical and in a perceptive way.

 

The Best Student Paper Award goes to Robert Hupke and co-authors Lukas Beyer, Marcel Nophut, Stephan Preihs and Jürgen Peissig for their paper “Effect of a Global Metronome on Ensemble Accuracy in Networked Music Performance.”

 

Abstract:
Several rhythmic experiments with pairs drawn from a group of 23 subjects were performed to investigate the effect of a global metronome on the ensemble accuracy in Networked Music Performance (NMP). Artificial delays up to 91ms were inserted into the audio transmission between the subjects. To investigate the dependencies between delay times, ensemble accuracy and the highly synchronized global metronome, the experiments were evaluated in terms of tempo acceleration, imprecision and subjective judgment of the ensemble play. The results show that the global metronome leads to a stabilization of the tempo acceleration caused by the delay. The imprecision stays constant to a threshold of about 28ms and 36ms, depending on the delay compensating strategy the subjects used.

Inspiration Abounds at AES New York 2019

Attendees take in the AES New York 2019 Exhibition floor, hosting 236 exhibiting brands alongside 130 sessions on the Exhibition Hall's Inspiration Stages and in its topical Theaters

Attendees take in the AES New York 2019 Exhibition floor, hosting 236 exhibiting brands alongside 130 sessions on the Exhibition Hall's Inspiration Stages and in its topical Theaters

The 147th Audio Engineering Society International Pro Audio Convention rocks the Javits Center with four days of everything audio 

 

Under the banner Inspire, professional audio’s annual family reunion returned to New York City’s Javits Center for four October days where inspiration was abundant as leading audio innovators shared their knowledge and experience alongside gear designed to spark creativity and imagination while enhancing productivity. The personal contact that makes the audio industry a community was intertwined with educational experiences and the sharing of information crafted to provide attendees with resources to propel their careers forward.

 

“The program rocked, and the exhibits were packed with people. Everyone was very excited to be there,” shares Agnieszka Roginska, AES New York 2019 co-chair and AES president-elect. “No time in AES’s history has seen a more diverse, innovative and forward-looking program.” Convention co-chair and AES Secretary Valerie Tyler elaborates, “We expanded the comprehensive technical program to include more genres, a broader range of new technologies and a wider breadth of voices than ever before.” 

 

“We’re so proud of the team that came together to make this convention a reality,” adds Jonathan Wyner, the third of the Convention’s co-chairs. “From the technical program to the exhibition hall, the interests of every attendee were met. Expanded topics drew new attendees and let long-time attendees expand their horizons.”

 

The Convention’s wealth of opportunity – more than 750 of professional audio’s leading innovators presenting in the more than 330 sessions in the All Access Technical Program and the 130 sessions on the Exhibition Hall’s Inspiration Stages and in its topical Theaters, alongside 236 exhibiting brands – was evident in the registration numbers, according to Colleen Harper, AES Executive Director. “Registration for the Audio Engineering Society’s 147th International Pro Audio Convention again topped 14,000,” she says. “That includes a 20% increase in individuals opting for an All Access badge for the full Technical Program. The AES and our events are more relevant than ever to an industry where technology and its application are in a constant state of change.” 

 

“Over the last few years,” says producer/engineer and AES New York 2019 presenter Warren Huart, “AES has actively been bringing in and cultivating young Engineers. This year’s show was amazing testament to this. Plus, all the exhibitors brought their ‘A Game’! Everyone’s booths showed a massive range of products, and the diversity of modern and legacy products was the best it’s ever been. It was so gratifying to see the huge amount of innovation on display!” 

 

That blend of modern and vintage was exemplified by console maker API’s presence at AES New York 2019, where the company celebrated its 50th anniversary. It was “a great show for API,” says the company’s owner and president, Larry Droppa, “aided by the museum display in our booth, which provided not only a history lesson for the younger generation, but a chance for our contemporaries to reminisce over the 'glory days' of tape-based recording. Attendees were enthusiastic about the state of the industry. We were particularly pleased with the number of student groups and younger audio engineer/producers who value the listening process as much as the advances in technology."

 

Showing further appreciation for AES’s nurturing of the audio professionals that are the future of both the Society and the audio industry, Genelec Inc.’s marketing director Will Eggleston sums up AES New York 2019 by declaring, “The AES audio community is alive and vibrant, indeed. It’s so great to see so many enthusiastic young audio professionals participating and doing so many cool things.”

 

 

On the AES event calendar for 2020 are the AES Academy in January in Anaheim, the AES Worship Sound Academy in Nashville in March, the AES Vienna 2020 Convention in May, the Audio Educators Conference in Murfreesboro/Nashville in July and the AVAR Conference in Redmond, Washington in August. AES New York returns to the Javits Center October 21 – 24, 2020. To learn more about AES regional events, International Conferences and Conventions, visit www.aes.org/events
