Michelle Daniels speaks to AES[April 23, 2014 @ 5:15PM]

This month, Michelle Daniels, graduate researcher from University Of California, San Diego will be presenting on an “Introduction to Audio Networking and an Open Source Dynamic Networked Audio System”

This talk will give an introduction to the world of audio networking, providing an overview of how digital audio samples and control data can be transported across a network and introducing commonly-used network-based protocols such as the Real-Time Transport Protocol (RTP) and Open Sound Control (OSC). In the process, we will distinguish between audio networking systems using OSI Layers 2 and 3 and discuss the use of UDP vs. TCP for transport in Layer 3 systems. Some applications of audio networks will be presented with a focus on enabling remote collaboration over wide-area networks. The talk will culminate with a discussion of the speaker’s award-winning open-source software for dynamic audio networking and its use in remote collaboration environments.

Chicago AES Section Meeting[January 29, 2014 @ 6:30PM]

The next Chicago AES Section Meeting will be on January 29, 2014 @ 7:30PM. The presentation is presented by Jon Boley, PhD, who has just over a decade of experience working as an engineer & psychoacoustician. The meeting will take place at Shure Incorporated in Niles, IL.

About the Presentation: The phase of a signal can be tremendously important in some situations. In other situations, the phase seems to have no meaningful effect whatsoever. We will discuss when phase is perceptually important, and when it isn't. We will clear up some basic concepts, bust some myths, and hopefully gain some new insights. The presentation will include summaries of some recent psychoacoustics & neuroscience research, and of course some audio demos.

AES@UIC will plan to meet at the Daley library on east campus and leave around 6:30PM. If you are interested in attending, please post to this thread:

When: Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 7:30PM
