USA - The Sound Reinforcement Track sessions at the AES New York 147th Audio Engineering Society International Pro Audio Convention (16-19 October at the Javits Centre) will offer “insights for sound professionals of today and tomorrow”, say organisers.
“This year, we have once again gathered top industry experts and manufacturers at the pinnacle of live event production and sound reinforcement to share their hard-won knowledge,” comments AES New York sound reinforcement chair, Henry Cohen. “From foundations of systems design, to the latest in the science and technology of audio perception, the AES New York Sound Reinforcement events offer unprecedented access to the latest from the industry’s top researchers and gear designers, as well as the engineers that exemplify best practices in the craft of sound reinforcement.”
The AES New York Sound Reinforcement Track’s series of educational opportunities includes sessions revealing crucial details of sound reinforcement implementation such as Seven Steps to a Successful Sound System Design and further ideas and techniques in A Cookbook Approach to Sound System Optimisation with Bob McCarthy.
Delving further into system specifics, the multi-part RF Super Session will host a discussion of RF spectrum and regulatory changes, an update on the latest compliant equipment, and best and advanced RF practices including filtering techniques and RF over fibre.
AC Power, Grounding and Shielding will cover theory and practice of AC power for small to large sound systems, including multiple transformers and company switches, service types, generator sets, single- to three-phase mains, AC source voltages and more, while mitigating hum and buzz noise problems.
The tutorial Psychoacoustics for Sound Engineers will present topics including how we integrate and perceive sounds, perception of frequency and frequency balance, audible effects of latency, IEMs and sound / video synchronization, and more.
Additional AES New York Sound Reinforcement events will include dedicated Broadway production sessions, along with other tutorials, workshops and scientific paper presentations.
