imgNew York, NY (September 30, 2014)—The 137th Audio Engineering Society Convention will present a series of workshops, tutorials and special sessions focused on the latest developments in audio networking technology, standards and practices. The news comes on the heels of registration opening for free Exhibits-Plus badges and All-Access badges (http://www.aes.org/events/137/registration).

Scheduled for Thursday, October 9, through Sunday, October 12, 2014, at the L. A. Convention Center in Los Angeles, CA, the convention’s Networked Audio Track will feature a comprehensive set of presentations and professional opportunities dealing with the latest developments and technologies in networked audio, as well as applications for system integration, broadcast, live sound, recording, contractors and more. Tim Shuttleworth, a noted networked audio engineer and engineering manager at systems manufacturer Renkus-Heinz, chairs the track.

From Audio-over-IP used across continents in the broadcast sector, to super-low-latency audio transfer in the studio environment, to low-latency systems for live sound reinforcement in fixed installations and touring systems, the medium of choice is increasingly a high performance Ethernet/TCP/IP network. Workshops and tutorials will cover the history of audio networking as well as leading-edge developments, with session titles including “Using AES67 Networking — Practical issues in AES67 Deployment”; “Software Tools for Telematic Performances”; “Large Scale AVB Networks/AVDECC Control”; “Implementation of a Large Scale Ethernet AVB Audio Network at ESPN”; and “Using Audio Content Over IP Technology in Public Radio.”

Additionally the AES Convention will play host to a Telematic performance linking Los Angeles, Montreal and Stanford University in a showcase featuring live, interconnected performances with musicians across time zones and geographical locations.

Shuttleworth stated, “One of the popular topics at this convention will be the deployment and performance verification for AES67 standard-based Layer 3 systems, as well as the implementation of Ethernet AVB in cars, recording, and broadcast studios. Developments in standardized command and control protocols will also be highlighted, as well as a multi-site live performance in which the musicians collaborate across time zones and countries over internet connections, which will showcase the capabilities and limitations of a disseminated ensemble concert.”
