Workshops, Tutorials & Master Classes Explore Design Tips & Challenges -- From iPhone Strategies to DSP For Dummy's
Supporting the axiom that creativity is one part inspiration, 99 parts perspiration, 129th AES Convention Committee Product Design Track Chair Bob Moses has assembled nearly two dozen Workshops, Tutorials and Master Classes into the first dedicated Product Design Track. Set for SF's Moscone Center November 4 - 7, the AES Convention is a magnet for audio professionals from every quarter of the industry: broadcast, live sound, game audio, recording, mixing, mastering and education.
Presentations featured in the Product Design Track include:
GROUNDING & SHIELDING - CIRCUITS & INTERFERENCE - A two-part Master Class ,Ralph Morrison: Based on his classic book of the same title, now in its fifth edition, the first session will include a discussion of shielding as applied to analog circuits and radiating structures. The second session will examine the role of digital logic and processers in the audio world
DSP - Why So Hard? - Tutorial, Peter Eastty: If you've ever wondered why audio DSP programming is so hard when the algorithms are so simple, this is the place for you.
LICENSING 3RD PARTY TECHNOLOGY, HOW TO MAKE IT WORK FOR YOU - Workshop, Bob Moses: The classic dilemma, an undersized development team is tasked with a fast-tracked design/build product that satisfies a laundry list of market requirements. Leveraging 3rd party technologies can be a critical asset. Discussion will address challenges and benefits of 3rd party integration.
AN OVERVIEW OF AUDIO SYSTEM GROUNDING AND INTERFACING - Tutorial, Bill Whitlock: Manufacturers often pretend problems don't exist, but this tutorial replaces hype and myth with insight and knowledge. Simple, no-test- troubleshooting methods can pinpoint the location and cause of system noise. Some widely used "cures" are both illegal and deadly.
* IS YOUR EQUIPMENT DESIGN A NOISE PROBLEM WAITING TO HAPPEN? - Master Class, Bill Whitlock
* SEMANTIC AUDIO SUCCESS / COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS OF SEMANTIC AUDIO ANALYSIS - Tutorial, Jay LeBoeuf
* NETWORKING FOR AUDIO APPLICATIONS - Tutorial, Kevin Gross
* HEADPHONES, HEADSETS & EARPHONES - ELECTROACOUSTIC DESIGN & VERIFICATION - Workshop, Christopher J. Struck
"The Convention Committee was universally behind this dedicated track," Co-Chair Jim McTigue reports. "The challenges of audio design in the 21st century require a community ready to meet, debate and share the wisdom of the past and the promise of the future."
