AES Goes Green with Membership Cards


AES has gone "green" and will no longer be printing and mailing membership cards. Instead, if you need one, it can be printed from the membership portal, so you no longer have to wait for something to arrive in the mail.

Latest Standards Activity


The recently released "Spatial acoustic data file format", AES69-2015, provides an important framework for the growing binaural and 3D personal audio industries. Binaural listening is growing fast, because of growing sales in smartphones, tablets and other individual entertainment systems. The lack of a standard for the exchange of head-related transfer functions (HRTF) has meant that each company has kept its binaural capture and rendering algorithms private. With a standardized file format for HRTF data, each company could contribute its best algorithms, providing good personalized capture and/or rendering, allowing the consumer to select the best available quality of experience.
