AES65-2012, Connector for surround microphones
AES65-2012, AES standard for interconnections - Connector for surround microphones, has been published.
An increasing number of surround sound microphones are becoming available, however, there has been no common standard for the connectors between microphone and recording device. It is expected that a standard connection will create a basis for smaller and lighter recording devices.
This standard specifies a connector type and contact assignment for microphones having up to six balanced analog output channels, as used in surround sound applications. It includes specifications for marking and identification for the audio channels. It includes recommendations for cable type and detailed wiring. It is expected that other applications will also use this connection.
