AES and NAB are once again giving us a co-located double treat in New York this October. The two shows dovetail brilliantly, with AES presenting all the latest developments in pro-audio, and NAB doing the same for broadcast technology, with a fair amount of cross over in the post and live to air audio production areas with a number of manufacturers exhibiting in both halls. Both shows are again being held at the Javits Center, just a couple of blocks away from Madison Square Garden who themselves are right at the heart of some of the latest developments in immersive and 3D audio. Both shows feature a convention and an exhibition, with top quality speakers and live events.

Interfacio will be at AES and NAB from 16th-19th October, and our own Bardy Hayes and Richard Wear will be meeting with new and existing clients, talking about ways to address the increasing challenges of finding and hiring key talent around the globe and especially in North America, Europe and APAC.

Education and training is an important part of AES’s ethos, with an Education Foundation and competitions specifically for students. Interfacio will be attending the Career Fair on Friday 18th and we are delighted to be again supporting the Student Design Competition with our now established product management mentoring award.

This year the 147th AES Convention has a packed program of live events, with 16 different ‘tracks’ covering all aspects of pro audio, from hip-hop sampling to game audio. Presenters include the legendary producer Hank Shocklee (founder member of Public Enemy) and Louis D. Fielder, a leading researcher in the fields of psychoacoustics and audio coding, who will deliver the Heyser Memorial Lecture.

The exhibition floor features global heavyweights such as Shure, Sennheiser, Dolby, Avid and Yamaha, plus a host of recording, mastering, live and installed sound specialists. There are also several ‘live production’ stages, showcasing a range of events including audio mixing, electronic dance music, and many more.

The NAB show is going through a process of transition from its former more traditional broadcast territory, to now include more technology for OTT, streaming and cloud services as well. With increasing overlap between cinema and consumer content services, this means that the whole visual tech industry is represented. NAB now styles itself as a ‘storytelling’ show, and there are a huge number of presentations and workshops scheduled covering everything from advanced graphic techniques in Photoshop and Aftereffects, to video lighting on a budget.

Interfacio specialise in recruitment and talent search within the Pro-Audio, Broadcast, AV and Lighting and  industries, working in all key business disciplines including sales, marketing, technical, R&D, and management.
