New York, NY (September 19, 2013)—The Audio Engineering Society's 135th Convention, to be held in New York City next month, will present a Networked Audio Track, a comprehensive examination of the ongoing fundamental shift in networked audio sponsored by the AES technical Committee.

The AES recently published AES67-2013, a new engineering standard for networked/streaming audio-over-IP interoperability, and this Networked Audio Track will explore the latest developments in methods, protocols and applications of every aspect of networked audio, from low-latency media distribution to command and control of networked audio devices, from Audio-over-IP to coding and error correction.

Chaired by Tim Shuttleworth, an expert in the domain of networked audio and the Engineering Manager at systems manufacturer Renkus-Heinz, the Networked Audio Track will cover the entire spectrum of this complex topic, while catering to audience knowledgeability levels ranging from entry level to expert. A partial list of topics covered in presentations, which take place from 2:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Sunday, includes:

• Audio Distribution Over Networks
• A Primer On Fundamental Concepts of Media Networking
• Command and Control Protocols
• Networked Audio Interoperability Standards  

“Networking will influence every aspect of professional audio within the next several years, and it’s already well-entrenched in areas such as installed sound and live sound,” said Shuttleworth. “Networked audio is very rapidly integrating itself into the very fabric of pro audio, in a wide range of applications. As a result, learning as much as you can about networked audio is critical to furthering a career in any corner of the industry. This track was developed with that in mind, to offer a wide range of information to the widest audience possible.”

The 135th AES International Convention will be held on Thursday, October 17 to Sunday, October 20, at the Javits Center in New York City. For further detailed information on the Networked Audio Track, visit
