Company and Industry Professionals Impart Knowledge on Mic Specs, Concealed Miking Techniques and Interference Tubes During Live Speaking Sessions

NEW YORK, OCTOBER 16, 2018 – The 145th AES Convention offers expert advice for the broad spectrum of audio engineers with an emphasis on the practical, bringing professionals with decades of experience to the stage to inspire and educate attendees. Throughout the show, DPA Microphones professionals and notable users will be participating in a variety of panels and industry discussions. These include the most important microphone specs, sharing expert advice on concealed miking techniques for film and television, and a paper presentation on interference tubes for microphones.

On Wednesday, October 17 from 10:45AM-12:15PM EST DPA Microphones Consultant, Eddy Bøgh Brixen will be speaking at a panel titled Recording & Production: RP01 - Microphones—Can You Hear the Specs? A Master Class. This master class highlights the most important microphone specs and provides attendees with up-to-date information on how these specs are obtained and can be interpreted. Many audio demonstrations will be given to help attendees understand how the numbers relate to the perceived sound.

Sound Engineer and DPA Masters Club member Jose Frias will speak about his use of DPA Microphones during the AES New York 2018 Live Production Sound Stage Sessions, which is located on the show floor next to the exhibits. Frias’ session, Concealed Miking with DPA Microphones – LS08, will take place Thursday, October 18 from 1:00PM-1:45PM EST.

As part of the session, Frias will go through different mic choices, wardrobe considerations, mounting accessories and proper etiquette when dealing with talent or subjects.

On Friday, October 19 from 9:00AM-12:00PM EST, DPA will present its paper on Stepped Acoustic Transmission Line Model of Interference Tubes for Microphones (P12-1) at the AES NY Paper Session (P12). Francesco Bigoni from Aalborg University, Finn T. Agerkvist from the Technical University of Denmark and Eddy Bøgh Brixen at DPA Microphones will present the paper, which is an extension of the standing-wave model of interference tubes for microphones by Ono et al. The presentation will discuss how the original model accounts for three acoustic parameters: tube length, tube radius, and constant acoustic conductance per unit length as well as DPA’s extension that allows a varying conductance per unit length along the side wall.
