SADiE, manufacturers of professional digital audio and video equipment for the broadcast, film and CD mastering industries, have announced the immediate release of AES31.
The announcement follows the successful public demonstration of AES31 at the AES Exhibition in Los Angeles in September 2000, in which SADiE played a leading role.
AES31 is the new standard for network and file transfer of digital audio. The goal of the standard is to re-introduce to the professional audio industry the concept of universal interchange. A universal format for interchanging audio has not been present since the days of analogue tape.
Joe Bull, SADiE's Managing Director, said: “We are very excited to be able to be first into the market with AES31. I am proud to have been one of the instigators of the standard following the recognition that there was a growing demand for a common interchange format throughout our industry. We have always promoted interchange between SADiE and other workstation manufacturers and already support the broadest range of disk, file and EDL formats. I am delighted to announce that with immediate effect we can sustain our reputation for quality and innovation by offering the obvious benefits of AES31 to SADiE customers across the world.”
AES31 defines the source material alongside edited audio, including cross fades, that is text-based in the manner of a traditional edit decision list (EDL), which makes it easily readable and correctable if circumstances require it. The format is sample-accurate and supports multi-channel files in excess of 99 channels, as well as interchange between PAL and NTSC formats.
Many other major digital audio manufacturers are poised to follow SADiE's lead by implementing the AES31 project interchange standard, which is set to revolutionise the audio production industry. (CD)
