The AES will hold a dedicated, four-day Broadcast Audio Conference at the fall show in New York this year.
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.”
The show will be at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in October.
“Attendance numbers and media attention for broadcast-related events at recent AES Conventions have increased substantially,” stated Executive Director Roger Furness.
AES is calling it a “conference within a convention.” Convention Committee Chair Jim Anderson and Conference Chair David K. Bialik are organizing the 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 describes the event as “the only broadcast conference 100% oriented to engineers, production and technical staff rather than sales and management.”
