Past Event: Extending IP Audio Across WANs

Extending IP Audio Across WANs

September 12, 2017 at 7:00 pm

Location: NYU Clive Davis Institue, 194 Mercer St., Studio 510, NYC

Speaker(s): Lon Neumann, Wheatstone Corp.

 The IP model of audio transport (AoIP) provides a unique combination of features that are well suited for today’s emerging remote At-Home production model. Integrated routing, processing, mixing, and control spread across interconnected devices on an IP network can be used to build a venue-side matrix of audio and control that includes mic-ingest, local mixing, low latency IFB, and control-logic from local or remote inputs. The resultant audio streams can then be transmitted to a distant At-Home production facility via AES67 (AoIP) for synchronization with the accompanying video streams.

Come join NY AES as Lon Neumann from Wheatstone Corp. walks us through the new era of IP remote production.

Demystifying A/V Connections using Fiber Optics and Ethernet CAT 5 — CAT 8

May 9, 2017 at 7:00 pm

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.

Past Event: The State of the Art of Binaural Audio

Edgar Choueiri, Professor of Applied Physics at Princeton University

Edgar Choueiri, Professor of Applied Physics at Princeton University

March 7, 2017 at 7:00 pm

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.

Past Event: Telling your Story with Sound

Telling your Story with Sound

February 7, 2017 at 7:00 pm

Location: Sennheiser pop-up store, 134 Prince Street, NYC

Moderated by: Jim Anderson

A podcast can be more than a monologue or an interview; it can be a rich environment for using sound to tell your story. One can use sound in many ways, whether it’s to set the scene, illustrate a concept, or enliven a journalistic endeavor. The talk will take the audience on an international aural journey from the 'hollars’ of Kentucky to the streets of Grenada in search of sounds. With Jim Anderson’s deep background in broadcasting, he will demonstrate the power of sound to illustrate and enrich a podcast.


ABOUT JIM:

Jim Anderson is an internationally recognized recording engineer and producer of acoustic music for the recording, radio, television, and film industries. He is the recipient of numerous awards and nominations in the recording industry: his recordings have received ten Grammy and Latin Grammy awards and 26 Grammy and Latin Grammy nominations; his radio recordings have received two George Foster Peabody Awards and two Emmy nominations for television programs.  

 

A graduate of the Duquesne University School of Music in Pittsburgh PA, during the 1970s Jim was employed by National Public Radio and engineered and produced many award-winning classical, jazz, documentary, and news programs. Since 1980, Jim has had a career as an independent audio engineer and producer, living in New York City. He has been a frequent lecturer and speaker for the Audio Engineering Society and master-class guest faculty member at leading international universities and institutes. He is a professor of recorded music with the Clive Davis Institute of Recorded music in the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University.

 

He has served many rolls in the AES and was the President of the Audio Engineering Society, 2008-2009. 

 

In 2013, his remix of Patricia Barber’s "Modern Cool," in 5.1 surround sound, won the Grammy for Best Surround Album at the 55th Grammy Awards. “Sixteen Sunsets” by Jane Ira Bloom was nominated for Best Surround Album in 2014.

Past Event: Recording vocals — Microphone selection and a history of hits

Recording vocals — Microphone selection and a history of hits

January 12, 2017 at 7:00 pm

Location: Sennheiser’s new Pop-Up Store, 134 Prince Street in Manhattan

Moderated by: Jim Anderson, NYU

Speaker(s): Alex U. Case, President, AES; University of Massachusetts Lowell

ABSTRACT:

For the first century of music recording, the sound of the recorded voice was very much driven by the initial limitations and slow-but-steady advancement of the audio technologies available at the time. First there were no microphones and recording was an unplugged acoustic and mechanical experience. Carbon, ribbon, condenser, and moving coil designs followed, each having an audible impact on the pop vocal. With the extraordinary capabilities of gear available today, we face fewer constraints. In fact, a contemporary challenge might be that, freed of technical restrictions, we have too many possibilities —too broad a range of creative options for tracking the all-important lead vocal. In this tutorial, Alex U. Case highlights what we might learn from audio history to drive our decisions for getting the right vocal sound at our next gig.
