Please spread the word and encourage your colleagues to join as well and together we can make it an even richer experience for the new generation joining our ranks and for those of us already working to make a better world through high quality audio.

44th Conference on Audio Networking Reminder - San Diego

AES 44th Conference

AES 44th International Conference, 2011
Audio Networking
Dates: November 18-20, 2011   Location: San Diego, CA, USA

Recent advances in networking technology and the availability of high-bandwidth connectivity have made audio networking a rapidly growing area in the AES. Increasingly, broadcasters connect with remote correspondents and audiences via the Internet, audio installations communicate in-house and with distant collaborators using LANs or WANs, businesses hold intercontinental meetings via high-definition video conferencing systems, and musicians perform together over thousands of miles in distributed concerts. The AES 44th International Conference will focus on recent advances in audio networking, including applications for live sound, studio installations, commercial applications, archiving and preservation, remote auditioning, pedagogy, performance over networks, and other use cases. In addition to paper sessions, the conference will consist of invited speakers, panel discussions of topics central to audio networking, and several invited technology demonstrations.

There is still time to plan your trip to beautiful San Diego so register today before the price goes up Sunday night!

Each Chair brought an extraordinary degree of commitment, enthusiasm and professionalism to the table. The results of their labors registered rave reviews and high praise from attendees and exhibitors alike.” (Continue reading...)
