The Audio Engineering Society to Host 57th International Conference on the Future of Audio Entertainment Technology

November 20th, 2014 | Posted in News, newsletter

The Audio Engineering Society is set to host its 57th International Conference on Friday, March 6 – Sunday, March 8, 2015, in the Hollywood neighborhood of Los Angeles, California, at the renowned TCL Chinese 6 Theatres in Hollywood, with hotel accommodations across the street at the historic Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. With the participation of industry partner SMPTE – the Society of Motion and Television Engineers – and following on the heels of the highly-successful Sound for Picture program track at the recent AES137 International Convention in L.A., the 57th Conference is perfectly positioned to set yet another milestone for the AES. With a direct focus on the Future of Audio Entertainment Technology, this conference will explore the latest issues facing audio professionals today in regards to cinema, television, online content and more, and is being co-chaired by Brian McCarty and Dr. Sean Olive.

Sound production for multi-media has evolved over a much different route than the more unified approach taken by the producers of visual assets, and this approach has left a streamlined production path for motion pictures but a complex and expensive production path for sound. Several dramatic changes are occurring in cinema exhibition, with “immersive sound” being the new buzzword. While Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) looks to be the next step in home entertainment, consumers are increasing their use of personal media devices, with headphones and portable audio looking to be a major segment of the entertainment technology future. This first-ever Future of Audio Entertainment Technology Conference brings together the best researchers, acousticians and engineers to address the current and future audio needs of the cinema, television and Internet (online) mediums.

Lynx Introduces New Line Of PCI Express Audio Cards With Aurora-Level Performance

November 20th, 2014 | Posted in News, newsletter

Lynx Studio Technology introduced the new line of PCI Express Cards at the Los Angeles Audio Engineer Show. These cards combine the connectivity of the Lynx AES16e PCI Express card with the audio quality of the Lynx Aurora converters. The first two offerings are the E44 and E22 cards.

“Since 2000, the LynxTWO and L22 audio cards have been the go-to cards for high resolution computer audio in the PCI format. Now that most computers only offer PCI Express, we have had many requests from our customers to port the LynxTWO design over to PCI Express,” explained Bob Bauman, Co-founder and Chief Hardware Engineer. “That was the starting point for these two cards. We combined the ideas that we have used over the last decade to develop a PCI Express card line that will meet the needs of our customers in many areas.” More »

Stage Tec Debuts XDSP Board For NEXUS Audio Router

November 20th, 2014 | Posted in News, newsletter

Stage Tec, part of the Salzbrenner Stage Tec Mediagroup, is pleased to announce the North American debut of the XDSP signal-processing board for the company’s acclaimed Nexus audio router. Like its predecessor, the new, re-engineered XDSP signal processing board is compact and lightweight while offering dramatically more processing power. Equally notable, the new XDSP integrates the ISOSTEM upmix system developed by Berlin-based DSPECIALISTS.

 

With its processing power nearly quadrupled, the new NEXUS XDSP board opens up new possibilities for audio signal processing within the NEXUS router. With the XDSP board, up to 20 minutes delay, as many as 66 30-band equalizers, or up to 320 dynamic units can be realized per board. As before, all signal-processing modules can be combined individually according to the customer’s requirements—thus meeting the demands of the most complex applications. Even with its substantially improved performance, the XDSP remains compact. Like its predecessor, the XDSP requires only a single 4HP grid in a 3U Base Device, thus significantly boosting the efficiency and productivity of the overall system. More »

Mojave Audio And Royer Labs Assume Vital Role In Production Of Latin GRAMMY® Award-Nominated Recording

November 20th, 2014 | Posted in News, newsletter

In the music industry, there is no greater honor than the Grammy Award. The combination of compositional, performance, and engineering skills required to bring a Grammy nominated recording to life is enormous. Yet for Cuban-born composer and producer Yalil Guerra, a third Latin GRAMMY Award nomination, now in the Best Classical Contemporary Composition category represents another accomplishment in a long list of milestone achievements. Capturing all the fine nuances of a world-class recording takes skill and the right tools for the job. So when it comes to microphones, Guerra depends on Mojave Audio and Royer Labs.

This year’s nominee composition String Quartet No. 2 was recorded by the La Catrina Quartet in April 2014 at RYCY Productions, Inc. in Burbank, CA. The recording also features Guerra’s String Quartet No. 1, A Mil Guerras Solo and works by other Latin-American contemporary composers. Guerra previously received a Latin Grammy Award in the category ‘Best Classical Contemporary Composition’ for Guerra’s Seducción. The album, Live in L.A., was released May 18th, 2012 by Guerra’s own label RYCY Productions, Inc. More »
