Sennheiser and Neumann Canada Present “Demystifying AES-42 Digital Microphones” The Most Misunderstood Newcomers on the Technology Scene • Presented by Michael Nunan

MIAC/PAL TRADE SHOW • DIRECT ENERGY CENTRE, TORONTO • Sunday, May 16th • 3:00pm • Salon 102A

Toronto, Canada, May 2010: Sennheiser and Neumann Canada are presenting a technical seminar at the upcoming MIAC/PAL Trade Show in Toronto, Canada on Sunday, May 16th at 3:00 p.m. in Salon 102A. Michael Nunan, post sound supervisor Michael Nunan for CTV will discuss “Demystifying AES-42 Digital Microphones” The Most Misunderstood Newcomers on the Technology Scene. As AES-42 Digital Microphones are one of the most exciting and potentially revolutionary developments to come along in decades, they’re also one of the most misunderstood newcomers on the technology scene. Unlike many new technologies and products that are supposed to be better merely because they’re new, AES-42 allows us new insight into some old problems. Digital microphones offer the very real potential of solving some of the most long-standing and intractable problems of the broadcast audio world.

Join CTV’s Michael Nunan for an in-depth look at this rapidly maturing technology from the perspective of practical implementation and workflows. Drawing on five years of daily experience with AES-42 in an array of broadcast and music environments.

Presented in cooperation with Sennheiser and Neumann, this session will range from live to post, and from documentary field sound to large-scale remote broadcasting and recording. Come and hear for yourself. It could change the way you think about the challenges of Broadcast Audio.
