The Audio Engineering Society will conduct a series of webinars explaining how its audio standards process works.
The series is hosted by its Standards Committee. It promises to “illuminate the inner workings of the often complex, yet necessary, set of rules by which engineers and equipment manufacturers abide and the increasingly important role of the AES and its work to establish audio standards and practices that ensure interoperability worldwide.”
“The webinar will also provide opportunities for individuals to become involved in the ongoing proposal and establishment of working audio protocols,” AES stated.
The announcement was made by AES Standards Committee Chair Bruce Olson, who said the series should help demystify the standards development process.
A webinar on March 29 will discuss the current development of a procedure for loudspeaker test and measurement using a music simulation test signal called M-Noise.
On May 17, Nicolas Sturmel will discuss using AES67 over wide-area networks, the focus of the SC-02-12-M Task Group.
On July 26 Bill Whitlock will discuss ongoing initiatives on analog system interconnection standards in the SC-05-05 Working Group.
In the fourth webinar on Sept.20, Anthony Kuzub will discuss the new AES72 standard from SC-05-02 for transporting either analog or digital audio over quad twisted pair cable, including documentation of RJ45 connector pin-outs.
