Project AES-X230 initiation

[page updated 2016-03-24]

This project was proposed by J. Breitlow. It was approved under our rules by Subcommittee SC-04 and assigned to the SC-04-04 Working group on Microphone Measurement and Characterization.

TITLE AES-X230, Control data for microphones in AES70
SCOPE To specify control data sets in OCA (AES70) for wired and wireless microphones.
OUTPUT INTENT Information document
RATIONALE AES70 (OCA) offers a framework to control devices in networks. To gain maximum interoperability between different manufacturers, standard parameter trees with common parameter names, types and ranges are required. This framework should include both wired and wireless microphones.
WHO BENEFITS? Professional audio community
WHY AES? A standardized control protocol for microphones is critical for the development of professional audio.
