AES Technical Committee
Fiber Optics for Audio
Chair: Ronald Ajemian (Send Email) Chair: Werner Bachmann (Send Email) Forum: Committee Discussion Forum
The committee addresses a variety of fiber optic technologies including recording, broadcast, test equipment, cables, connectors, and broadband telecom links of audio systems worldwide. The objectives will be to better understand fiber optic based technologies to allow the user or designer an easier transition for integration with existing electrical based audio systems. The committee will provide updated fiber optic advancements through this process and will disseminate this information.

Previous Workshop: Fiber Optic Connector Choices for Audio, Saturday, October 31, 2015. 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM Room1A06
This AES workshop is designed to educate the user, engineer, technician and student on the most popular Fiber Optic Connector types that are currently available in the audio/video market place. A brief review will be presented about these connectors. The panel will then discuss user preferences for various audio/video applications. A demo will also be shown on how to terminate (put together) a typical LC fiber optic connector to a glass optical fiber.
