New York, NY (September 13, 2013)—This year’s 135th Audio Engineering Society Convention (October 17 to 20 at the Javits Center in New York City) will once again feature a Live Sound Track of events, bringing a high level of focus to key aspects of live sound, with expertise and insight shared by some of the industry’s top professionals.

Live Sound industry veterans Henry Cohen and Mac Kerr will once again co-chair the Live Sound Track, bringing events that cover topics both core and emerging, from signal processing, grounding, loudness and metering, to the rapidly evolving domain of networked audio, where several sessions, such as “Audio Distribution Over Networks,” will address systems and protocols like Dante and Audio Video Bridging (AVB).   

“The AES Show has always been an invaluable resource for information about both the art and the science of live sound,” said Cohen, who is also Senior RF Engineer with CP Communications. “Our goal is to provide greater knowledge of the technologies and techniques around live sound and do so with great detail and intensity of focus. We develop sessions and panels for the Live Sound Track by following industry practices, emerging technologies and online SR forum discussions. Audio-over-networks has become a common method of signal transport, with new protocols and topologies being constantly developed. This Live Sound session, along with several other paper presentations, looks at the competing architectures and practices so the attendee can come away with a better understanding of what might be the best options for their particular needs.”  

Other events with the Live Sound Track include:
• AC Power and Grounding
• Audio Distribution over Networks
• Sound System Optimization
• Speech Intelligibility in Stadiums
• Production Wireless Systems: Tips and Tricks from the Experts
• Audio for Corporate Presentations
