Waves has joined the AES Standards Sustainer program at the Silver level. Presonus has also joined at the Silver level. Attero Tech has joined the Standards Sustainer program at the basic level. The generosity and support of all three companies is greatly appreciated.
The standards work of the Audio Engineering Society has been vital to the advancement of the audio industry. Numerous standards in development are driving an expansion of the AES standards operation. That necessitates an expanded base of funding. Unlike other technical societies with standards programs the AES does not charge participation fees. The Society believes that a completely open process ultimately produces better and more widely accepted standards. Consequently other sources of revenue are required.
Standards Sustainers provide critical funding for this effort. Besides enabling the development of standards that underlie fundamental technology in the audio industry, the program offers participants significant marketing and public relations exposure. The Audio Engineering Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and 100% of the contribution is tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
Donors may contribute at three different levels; a $1,000 basic level, $2,000 Silver level, or the $5,000 Gold level. Details on participating in the Standards Sustainer program may be found on the AES Standards web site.
