Prism Sound
 and Oxford Digital, in conjunction with the AES, Texas Instruments, Klippel,  LOUDSOFT and Audio EMC, invite you to join our audio engineering masterclass via LIVE webcast feed from the 51st AES conference in Helsinki. This is a unique opportunity to hear from some of the most experienced engineers in the industry, and to hear about their practical approaches to analogue and digital audio design. See the latest developments in technology, and learn from the many decades of collective experience of our panel of experts.

Klippel will discuss ongoing efforts to define and develop meaningful audio performance metrics for today’s smart devices.

LOUDSOFT will explain to us how the loudspeaker development process can be greatly streamlined with modern CAD tools. 

Oxford Digital will show us how the application of DSP techniques can maximise compact loudspeaker performance for a given budget and footprint.

Texas Instruments will address the performance benefits afforded by a system-level approach to active loudspeaker design.

Prism Sound will demonstrate how modern digital audio analysis techniques can provide far greater and more rapid insight into system performance.

Audio EMC will provide practical solutions to the often-overlooked problems of electromagnetic interference and its impact on audio system performance. 

If you would like to attend the full 51st AES conference in person, please visit the AES website to register.

EMC is in the Wiring

Audio EMC

When I first started to consider how to find sources for radio frequency interference (RFI) in audio systems, my natural instinct was to look for frequencies that were being transmitted on purpose. But it turned out that the most disruptive RFI sources were not designed or intended to transmit radio waves – they did it by accident! What was even worse, was the fact that most of the really bad sources of interference tended to be inside the physical system.

Anyone working in Broadcast, Recording, Live-Sound or Theatre, soon finds out that lighting control systems create a lot of wide band electrical noise and that the noise varies with the brightness of the lights. However, it is not immediately obvious that part of the noise is radiated (like radio waves) and part is coupled to the system wiring by electromagnetic induction. During the last 20 years of the 20th century, the advent of motor driven lighting equipment, power flying, stage machinery and computers, forced national standards authorities to do something about the problem. In Europe, this is called the Electro Magnetic Compatibility Directive (EMCD).

More recently, we need to be able to cope with the cell ‘phone.
