AES Broadcast Events Announced; Fybush Moderates Armstrong Event Reunion

Surround sound, digital radio and FM history are notable themes of the broadcast sessions at AES this fall.
Events have been outlined for the upcoming show in New York. Dave Bialik is again chairing the broadcast sessions.
Radio World’s Scott Fybush, editor of Northeast Radio Watch, will moderate a special event recalling the recent 70th anniversary of the first public demonstration of FM by Major Armstrong. The session will include several participants of the recent broadcast at the Armstrong Tower site including Robert Carter Brecht, a descendant of the FM innovator, Henry G. Dietz and others.
Bialik will chair the “Digital Radio Broadcast Forum,” now in its 14th year. Participants include Leonard Kahn of Kahn Communications; David Wilson of the Consumer Electronics Association; Mike Lyons of Ibiquity; David Layer of NAB; Skip Pizzi of Microsoft/Radio World; Tony Masiello of XM Radio; Mark Kalman of Sirius; and representatives of the Digital Radio Mondiale consortium.
Herb Squire will chair a discussion of “Surround Sound for Digital Radio.” Participants include Robert Reams of Neural Audio; Stephan Geyersberger of Fraunhaufer; SRS CTO Alan Kraemer; Frank Foti of Telos/Omnia/Axia; Tony Masiello of XM; Rocky Graham of Dolby Labs; and Mike Pappas of KUVO(FM). Tutorials will look at “Mixing a Live Broadcast in Surround” and “Designing a Broadcast Facility for 5.1.”
Another session will delve into “Audio for HDTV.” Bialik also is working on presenting an audio drama on stage at the Javits Convention Center, produced by Himan Brown.
Separately, the AES has announced its Technical Tours.
They include visits to “The CBS Late Show With David Letterman,” Electric Lady, Sirius Satellite and Jazz at Lincoln Center.
