Live from AES London 2010

Audio and broadcast technology journalist Matt Bell is attending all four days of the 128th AES Convention in London, so we asked him if he would make a live podcast of the show for us from the halls of the Novotel Convention Centre, in Hammersmith, London, where the show is taking place. Join Matt as he walks around the Convention, talking to the organisers and exhibitors about this year's show and some of the new products and technology being introduced there.
