The AES42 interface for digital microphones is not yet widely used. This can be due to the relatively new appearance of digital microphone technology, but also a lack of knowledge and practice with digital microphones and the corresponding interface. The advantages and disadvantages have to be communicated in an open and neutral way, regardless of commercial interests, on the basis of the actual need of the engineers.

Along with an available “White paper” about AES42 and digital microphones, which is aimed a neutral in-depth information and was compiled from different authors, the workshop intends to bring to light facts and prejudices on this topic.
