AES 141st Convention

AES 141st Convention
Location: Los Angeles, CA, USA
Dates: 29 September – October 2, 2016

Opening Ceremonies keynote speaker and composer Ron Jones will explore the human factor, and the implications of technical advances for listeners, in his talk, “Remember the Human Receptor on the Road to the Future.” Jones, owner of Stanwood, WA’s SkyMuse Studios and Ron Jones Productions, is the GRAMMY®- and Emmy-nominated composer for Star Trek: The Next Generation, Family Guy, Superman and more. His vision of audio’s future is clear: “I welcome the new directions where audio production is heading, but caution everyone in this rapidly changing time to not lose sight of what all this technology is for: to engage peoples’ emotions using the art and craft of music.”

Preliminary Loudness Guidelines for OTT Television and Video Streaming

The AES Technical Council has published preliminary loudness guidelines for OTT television and video streaming. The document, AES TD1005, is the result of the hard work of an expert writing group led by Jim Starzynski, under the aegis of the Technical Committee on Broadcast and Online Delivery, led by David Bialik, Matthieu Parmentier, and Kimio Hamasaki. The goal of the study group is to develop a comprehensive recommendation, providing effective guidelines for managing audio loudness of soundtracks of television and video content available to consumers Over-The-Top (OTT) and by Online Video Distributors (OVD). The goal of AES Technical Documents is not to state a policy or support for a technical method, device or principle, but to provide information that represents the collective knowledge of a group of experts.
