Miniature microphones are used all over the place: For stage sound, for film sound, for television, for sound effects, etc. Traditionally these fine instruments are electret condenser types. This is why it has been possible to make them small with data comparable to many of the bigger brothers and sisters. This event has a panel of experts both from the manufacturing side as well as the user side. In this workshop some of the leading manufacturers will present their unique technology and some of the top designers from the live theater/film will demonstrate how the stuff works in practical sound design. Also a look into future technologies will be given that includes binaural applications for VR/AR.

AES Technical Council This session is presented in association with the AES Technical Committee on Microphones and Applications
