Audio Precision Honors Acoustician
Beaverton, OR - Oct 9, 2008 - Audio Precision (AP) helped to stage a reception in honor of professor Angelo Farina, the Italian theoretical and applied acoustician. Professor Farina's research into and development of impulse response measurement techniques based on exponential sine sweeps for use in electronic systems and acoustic environments are part of the foundation of the audio measurement technology 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 Sept. 18, 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 organized by AP and its Italian distributor Audio Link, the evening began with a lecture on ESS measurement techniques from professor Farina, included a talk from Audio Precision 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 center co-funded by, among others, Parma's University and City authorities and situated in a refurbished Renaissance church across the street.
