Javits Center - New York City
You can still book your hotel reservations
at reduced rates. The deadline is this Friday - September 14th!
There has been a lot of excitement in the air about the exhibitors
coming to New York and of course the incredible technical program. Be
sure to check out all the different events that you can attend if you
get a full program badge.
You should definitely take a moment to review the
list of exhibitors to
date and consider which booths to check out, but you can also peruse the
great wealth of info listed in the
detailed calendar and
program detail pages.
Make sure to register today
so you don't miss out on the advanced pricing discounts on registration
and hotel bookings.
32nd AES International Conference - Starts Next Week
DSP for Loudspeakers
September 21-23, 2007
Pharmakon - Hillerød, Denmark
Digital signal processing (DSP) offers loudspeaker system designers a
very powerful set of tools. It may be as simple as a delay line, which
hardly needs DSP anyway. Or it may be a precise and detailed filtering
with just the desired magnitude and phase characteristics. Such
filtering may be used to construct a single very accurate loudspeaker,
or used for room correction, or it may be used to create beam-steering
arrays or even wavefield synthesis. In addition to filtering, digital
signal processing may be used for distortion compensation, or for
enhancing the subjective performance by means of nonlinear processing.
On the analysis side, DSP can be used to monitor in real time the state
of the loudspeaker and model important driver parameters such as voice
coil temperature. Through the last couple of decades, AES members have
been in the forefront of this research.
Meanwhile, the maturity and price/performance ratio of essential system
components such as processors, software development tools, AD/DA
converters, and power amplifiers have reached a point where it makes
commercial sense for a large part of the audio industry to apply
loudspeaker-specific DSP in their products. Indeed, there are already
classes of products completely depending on it.
This international conference aims to present the state of the art
within the rich and still emerging field of loudspeaker-specific DSP and
create an inspiring and synergetic meeting between professionals in the
fields of electroacoustics, psychoacoustics, room acoustics, transducer
physics, and DSP. Registration and the Preliminary Program are
Please note that the registration deadline is this Saturday, Sept. 15th!
