SMPTE Invites AES Members to their Melbourne cinema-audio event
– As the Director Intended –
The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers active Standards group 25CSS and John Maizels in conjunction with their Melbourne chapter and support from Village cinemas Australia (Tim Weeks) is hosting a discussion group and practical session focussing on cinema sound.
This will be held from 3:00 pm on Monday 27th June at: Cinema 11, Village Cinemas, Jam Factory, Level 1, 500 Chapel Street South Yarra.
With COVID restrictions significantly eased, the Committee has made the decision to trial some in-person events as well as to maintain some online events for the 2022 meeting calendar.
On Monday April 11th a small cohort gathered in person for the first time in over two years for a Section Meeting. We visited the Involve Audio facility at Mentone, where Charlie Van Dongen demonstrated his designs for the complete surround sound chain with improved soundstage imaging – decoding, amplifier, loudspeaker processing, as well as electrostatic loudspeakers.
On arrival, we were greeted by a veritable feast of pizza and sandwiches along with soft drinks to start the evening. We thank Charlie and his accounts person John Di Paolo for their generosity.
Charlie started out by introducing his colleagues David Alexandrou – head of electronics, Ron Berger -electronics and software development, and Wayne Cary – mechanical and process audio consultant, who would assist him with the demonstrations.
The first in-person meeting of the AES Melbourne Section (in what seems like forever) will be held on Monday 11th April 2022 at 7:30pm.
*Note – there will be NO live online element to this meeting.
Charlie Van Dongen, of Involve Audio will host us at his Mentone (Vic) manufacturing facility, revisiting his earlier presentation with a practical demonstration of:
From loudspeakers to listeners

In the earlier session in February 2021 Charlie Van Dongen of Involve Audio, based in Melbourne, Australia described this end-to-end sound reproduction chain extending from the latest generation of loudspeaker transducers through amplifiers and render electronics that have been developed based on just how humans perceive sound.
