The Audio Engineering Society has formed a provisional committee to review audio reproduction for digital cinema and television. Spearheaded by Brian McCarty, managing director at Coral Sea Studios (Australia), the new AES Technical Committee on Sound for Digital Cinema & Television, AESTC-SDCTV, is planning a meeting in Los Angeles in early 2012. To participate in this event or to join the AESTC-SDCTV committee, contact Brian McCarty.

“Our mission is to identify a consistent approach to controlling perceived loudness and frequency response from installation to installation, and from position to position within digital cinema installations worldwide,” McCarty says. “And for this to be adopted as the formal reference for all contemporary dubbing stage recording and mixing activities, and ultimately as the unified method for film reproduction at home.”
