AES member and chair of AES Standards working group SC-02-12-P, Jim Starzynski participated on a panel on audio specifications at the Association of Independent Commercial Producers in NYC. The panel discussed the issues and complications with delivering audio for various platforms and what can be done to bridge the differences with a common deliverable. The goal is for AICP post-production members to deliver a single mix for all platforms. Moderated by Harrold Geller of Ad-Id, the panel also included an independent mix engineer, a rep from content integration at Facebook and a commercial aggregator.
This was the first opportunity to present the new AES71 standard to a forum outside the AES. Jim used the opportunity to review the standard and to talk about LKFS and the value of a universal deliverable. Although the group had no awareness about AES71 and all the good work going on in AES and CTA, there was much support for striving towards a -24 LKFS loudness.
This panel was a good first step in testing the waters and getting the word out!
