AES Standards Sustainer Program Launched

The standards work of the Audio Engineering Society plays a vital role in the advancement of the audio industry. As end-user experience proves, standards like the polarity specification for analog XLR connectors (AES14), two-channel digital interface on XLR (AES3) and multichannel MADI (AES10) enable confident operation of compliant gear. The rapidly adopted audio-over-IP audio standard, AES67, and its control companion standard, AES70, are enabling interconnection between hardware using a number of proprietary standards by providing common audio carrier and control topologies. Manufacturers and equipment designers employ AES standards to build customer confidence in their products, enhancing productivity in workflow.
