With the participation of industry partner SMPTE – the Society of Motion and Television Engineers – and following on the heels of the highly-successful Sound for Picture program track at the recent AES137 International Convention in L.A., the 57th Conference is perfectly positioned to set yet another milestone for the AES.
Of note at the AES 57th Conference is the SMPTE report entitled B-Chain Frequency and Temporal Response Analysis of Theatres and Dubbing Stages in regards to current standards and practices regarding B-chain electroacoustic response and calibration (https://www.smpte.org/standards/reports). The paper was produced with extensive participation from AES members and will serve as a foundation for further necessary advancements in audio technology in the Sound for Picture arena.
“SMPTE has been involved heavily in examining and exploring ways in which standards work can help to enhance the production, delivery and presentation of audio for moving images,” said Barbara Lange, SMPTE executive director. “We partnered with the AES at the AES137 International Convention to deliver compelling sessions addressing the future of audio engineering in both the cinema and television sectors. The Conference gives us another chance to work closely with the AES to offer industry members a fresh look at critical issues and advances in the realm of audio and visual entertainment technology.”
