AES REDESIGNED WEBSITE GOES LIVE

NEW YORK: The Audio Engineering Society Web Development Team has completed a massive overhaul of their website’s 12-year-old design. Distinguished by a sophisticated user interface, drop down menus and enhanced social networking, audio/visual and search capabilities, the user-friendly site allows content from lower levels to ‘float’ to the home page and provides quick access to all areas of the website.

AES Webmaster Steve Johnson reports that the site features such important amenities as a job board, podcasts, tutorial content from AES conventions, video excerpts from Oral History interviews, and new ways to connect with audio professionals around the world. “We allow members to create a profile on our site so that other members or potential clients can read about their skill set, link to their website, or simply get back in touch. A good example would be the profile of our President (www.aes.org/aes/jimanderson) where you can see his photo and contact him about AES matters or just say hello,” Johnson says.

“We have dramatically revamped the AES electronic library, which includes over twelve thousand scientific papers published in the AES journal or presented at AES events over the past sixty years. The site has streamlined countless tasks ranging from becoming a new member to discussing Journal articles and interacting with your local AES section. Anyone using an RSS reader will appreciate our additional news feeds which provide a stream of timely AES information to members and casual users alike,” Johnson adds.

AES Executive Director Roger Furness reports that the Web Development Team consisting of leader Nick Zacharov; webmaster Steve Johnson; graphic designer Josh Tidsbury and copywriters Peter Cook and Michael Fleming have, “designed and constructed a major instrument for maintaining the Audio Engineering Society’s leadership position as the primary forum for technical dialogue within the international professional audio community.”

“The new www.aes.org site provides some fantastic new social networking features with direct links to committees, Facebook-style member profiles and a highly sophisticated publication search engine,” AES President Jim Anderson concludes. “The time and energy devoted to this project will be paying dividends to our entire industry for many years to come.”
