Sponsors announced for AES 134

Moving away from a conventional exhibition, the 134th Convention has unveiled the 18 pro-audio companies taking part in its new sponsorship programme, led by Gold sponsors Berklee College of Music and RCF.

Adopting a new format in lieu of a traditional exhibition this year, the Audio Engineering Society has announced its lineup of sponsors for its 134th Convention in Rome. “The AES has always been the place for the audio industry to promote innovation, education and best practices,” said executive director Bob Moses. “In the past, the exhibition provided a platform for companies to showcase the latest and most advanced technologies for recording, live sound, broadcast and related audio fields. “But during the past decade, e-commerce, social networking, mobile platforms, economic struggles, and the increasingly rapid pace in which we work have coalesced into a total game changer. We’re exploring a number of new ways AES can serve businesses at the convention and beyond. These initiatives are part of our new convention sponsorship programme.” Leading the list are Gold sponsors RCF and the Berklee College of Music, and also include Audio Precision, Audiomatica, B&C Speakers, bd Sound, CharterOak, Crane Song, EKO Music Group, Fairlight Europe, Klippel, LAMBDA, Link, Microtech Gefell, Pro Audio Consulting, Thrax Audio, Trinnov Audio and ZP Engineering. “We salute our sponsors and we will make every effort to ‘over-deliver’ in our efforts to serve them at the Convention,” Moses concluded. “We hope other companies jump on-board the sponsorship bandwagon at future events so we can collaborate on keeping our industry smart and strong.” In related Convention news, AES 134 has designated Sunday, 5 May “Loudness Day,” to emphasise the importance “of the many complex issues related to this enduring problem”, said Convention chairman Umberto Zanghieri. Assembled by Florian Camerer, chair of the EBU Loudness Group, PLOUD, the full day of papers and panels will explore the latest research and practices and address recommendations for “demystifying and ameliorating this exasperating scourge”.
