The Audio Engineering Society (AES) will hold a dedicated, four-day Broadcast Audio Conference at the 123rd AES Convention in New York City, 5–8 October.

It said it is ramping up broadcast-related events "in response to growing demand by television and radio broadcasters for audio technology updates relevant to their HD/digital transitions."

AES is calling it a "conference within a convention." Convention Committee Chair Jim Anderson and Conference Chair David K. Bialik are organizing the broadcast program.

Planned sessions include a "Loudness Workshop" with Emil Torick; a two-part "Considerations for Facility Design" panel, including a standalone "Facility Wiring and Distribution Systems for TV & Radio" session; an "Innovations in Digital Radio" panel; and an "Audio Processing for HD (TV & Radio)" panel.

Bialik described the event as "the only broadcast conference 100-percent oriented to engineers, production and technical staff rather than sales and management."
