AP Honours Angelo Farina For His Contributions To Acoustics

Audio Precision (AP), a leading US-based manufacturer of audio test and measurement equipment, recently helped to stage a convivial evening reception in honour of Professor Angelo Farina, the leading Italian theoretical and applied acoustician.
Professor Farina's research into and development of impulse response measurement techniques based on exponential sine sweeps (ESS) for use in electronic systems and acoustic environments underpins the audio measurement technology at the hear of Audio Precision's APx range of audio analyzer instruments.
More than 50 acoustic and audio specialists, leading industry and academic figures and journalists gathered at the Casa della Musica at the historic Palazzo Cusani in Professor Farina's native city of Parma, Italy on September 18th, 2008 for a relaxed evening of lectures, discussions and presentations, followed by some fine food and wine at Parma's renowned restaurant Parma Rotta.
Jointly organised by AP and their Italian distributor Audio Link, the evening began with a lecture on ESS measurement techniques from Professor Farina himself, included a talk from Audio Precision's own Vice President of Engineering Dr Tom Kite on the implementation of Farina's techniques in AP's measurement tools, and also saw AP present an eight-channel APx585 audio analyzer to the University of Parma, Professor Farina's place of work.
Before the reception broke for dinner, attendees were also treated to a demonstration of the state-of-the-art sound systems at the recently opened Casa del Suono (House of Sound), a sonic research and exhibition centre co-funded by, amongst others, Parma's University and City authorities and situated in a beautifully refurbished Renaissance church across the street.
Dave Schmoldt, President of Audio Precision, said: "We felt it was only fitting to recognise Angelo Farina for his landmark work. ESS or continuous sweep techniques constitute a major step forward in the field of audio measurement technology and Audio Precision is proud to have incorporated Professor Farina's technique into our APx line."
