The pro-audio community is buzzing as the Audio Engineering Society’s annual US convention kicks off in New York today. New York’s most iconic building is illuminated tonight in blue and white to honour the AES, its members and audio technology innovators whilst at the same time recognising the 50th anniversary of the Alford FM antenna which serves Metro New York and the Tri-State radio listeners.

The show has a special broadcast focus this year, with sessions on broadcast audio, as well as a session on “The Accelerating Pace of Change in TV Audio” hosted by the DTV Audio Group (DTVAG) lead by Tom Sahara of Turner Sports.

In addition to the usual array of papers, technical sessions and standards committee meetings, the show floor will feature a wide array of exhibitors crossing the spectrum of live sound, installed and networked audio, music recording, post-production and broadcast audio, incorporating dedicated expo areas with a focus on Project Studio and Live Sound.
