New AESSC Standards Manager appointed

The AES is pleased to announce that Dr. Richard C. Cabot will be assuming the duties of Standards Manager. A former President of the AES, he has been involved with AES Standards since its early years, having chaired the development of the AES17 standard on digital audio measurement. He was one of the founders of Audio Precision, and developed their digital audio measurement technology. In addition to his standards work, Dr. Cabot's company, XFRM, Inc., designs professional audio equipment, consults on Intellectual Property patentability and infringement issues, and evaluates technology to guide companies in their investment decisions. He noted "I'm excited by the opportunity to guide AES Standards development going forward".

Mark Yonge, standards manager since 2001 has announced his intention to retire after the Berlin convention. During Mark's 16 years in the post he has expertly shepherded dozens of standards through the process from initial concept to published document. Under his guidance the AES Standards organization has grown to become the premier venue for coordinating technology in the audio field. Mark commented that, "it will be a wrench to step aside from the work of audio standards development, but I am delighted that Rich is taking up the task."

Please join me in welcoming Rich to his new role, and I know you will assist him in the coming transition. Until the AES 142nd convention there will be a transitional overlap period when Mark and Rich will be working together.

I look forward to seeing you at our standards meetings in Berlin at the AES 142nd Convention.

Bruce Olson
AES Standards Committee Chair.
