Audio Engineering Month Events to Feature AES’s APEI Product Development Symposium October 14 – 16

— Join the AES for our next-in-series Audio Product Education Institute event designed for those seeking to increase their skills and understanding of what it takes to launch successful audio products —

New York, NY, October 13, 2020 — From initial concept to realized production and end-user utilization, product design and manufacture underline the continued technological advances and application in the pro audio industry. The AES Show Fall 2020 Convention will closely examine all aspects of these disciplines with AES’s Audio Product Education Institute (AEPI) Product Development Symposium, October 14 – 16, taking place as part of the AES Audio Engineering Month event series. Sponsored by APEI Symposium Partners COMSOL, DSP Concepts, JJR Acoustics, Menlo Scientific, and Sequent, each multi-session day will promote and illuminate the methodologies, practices and technologies involved in developing and bringing audio products to market, spanning the APEI’s six educational pillars: Interactive Voice and DSP; Supply Chain and Sourcing; Modeling and Measurement; Product Management; Automotive Audio; and Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. The AES Show APEI Symposium is free for AES Show All Access registrants.

The Symposium begins with “Product Management: What It Is and Why You Can’t Live Without It,” an overview of product management, its value, and the role of the product manager, presented by JJ Rorie of Sequent Learning Networks. Scott Leslie, Audio Product Education Institute (APEI) Chair, will present a workshop targeted to current and future product managers, engineering managers, development engineers, manufacturing engineers, and supply chain personal titled “Product Management Modeling.” Further sessions on day one cover topics in the field of Modeling and Measurement, along with two sessions dedicated to product development in the Automotive Audio realm.

Day two takes a closer look at Supply Chain Sourcing with the sessions “Exploring and Expanding Options for Audio Sourcing,” presented by Mike Klasco of Menlo Scientific, and “Understanding Your Supply Chain – A Global Perspective” with Dave Lindberg from DB Enterprises. Modeling and Measurement, along with Automotive Audio topics, again take the spotlight for a series of sessions including “Audio Test and Measurement Tips and Tricks – What You Won’t Find in a Book” and “Testing Voice-Controlled & Smartphone Integrated Infotainment Systems.” The afternoon concludes with a lesson in Interactive Voice and DSP technologies in “Everything You Wanted to Know About Wake Words,” presented by Jeff Rogers, Co-Founder of Sensory.

Real-world stories of product successes and failures open up day three in the session “Product Management – Do’s and Don’ts (Separating the Best From the Rest),” presented by Steven Haines of Sequent Learning Networks, followed by two sessions focusing again on Interactive Voice and DSP: “Demystifying Beamformers” and “Intelligent Sensing with Piezoelectric Microphones.” Further sessions to close out the day include “Reinventing Speaker Manufacturing in the U.S.” and a final two sessions focusing on AI and Machine Learning: “Commercializing AI-driven Audio Products” and “Delivering Scalable AI-based Processing for Dolby.io.”
