Location: The Institute of Audio Research Jack Douglas Music Hall, 2nd Floor 64 University Place
Moderated by: Ron Ajemian, Owl Fiber Optics
Speaker(s): David Kuklinski, Neutrik USA
In today’s world of audio/video technology, engineers, technicians and studio operators are finding it a daunting task to decide what cables and connectors to deploy for high speed data intensive networks. This meeting will address the most current and popular A/V connections to deploy by updating past and present Fiber Optic connectors and cables with a brief overview at wired Ethernet Category CAT 5 – CAT 8 specifications.
As data rates and speeds keep increasing in the networks used for many applications in A/V and broadcast a need to better understand these connections for optimum performance has become necessary.
David Kuklinski will talk about the latest connectors from Neutrik’s product line of OpticalCon and EtherCon connectors.
Ron Ajemian will give a brief tutorial on Fiber Optic Connectors and Cables along with an overview of the new and upcoming standard for Category CAT 8 Ethernet connections.
Q and A will follow after the presentation. All students and members are welcome, but you must RSVP via the link below.

Edgar Choueiri, Professor of Applied Physics at Princeton University
Location: Sennheiser’s new Pop-Up Store, 134 Prince Street in Manhattan
Speaker(s): Prof. Edgar Choueiri, Princeton University
As most humans have only two ears, in theory we should need only two channels/transducers to hear recorded audio in full 3D. Princeton University Professor Edgar Choueiri will describe the challenges of binaural audio through headphones and loudspeakers, recent solutions to these challenges, and the state of the art of processing and content delivery development tools for each. Choueiri will describe and demonstrate his BACCH 3D Sound technology and BACCHdSP software. This system relies on crosstalk cancellation filters and the use of head tracking and automatic individualization for a particular listener. Headphone and loudspeaker reproduction hardware will also be discussed and demonstrated. To attend this meeting you must RSVP via the link below. (Click on "More Information") ABOUT Prof. Choueiri: Edgar Choueiri is professor of Applied Physics at Princeton University where he is Director of two research laboratories: The Electric Prolusion and Plasma Dynamics Propulsion Laboratory (where he works on advanced propulsion for deep space spacecraft), and the 3D Audio and Applied Acoustics (3D3A). He is the author of more than 200 scientific articles and publications and the recipient of numerous awards.
