Standards News

The AES Standards Committee is soliciting industry support through a new program called "AES Standards Sustainers". 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. Besides enabling the development of standards that underlie fundamental technology in the audio industry, the program offers participants significant marketing and public relations exposure.
