ABOUT RUPERT


I am a consultant with over 35 years’ experience in audio engineering. I can help you innovate new services, optimise your facilities, systems and workflows and I also deliver inspirational talks and lectures. I am currently working on audio objects for next-generation TV for Fraunhofer with Internews to develop independent media in South Sudan.


My career began with valve mixing desks and progressed through analogue multi-track studios at the BBC Maida Vale studios to early file based production in the Radiophonic Workshop.


More recently, I have designed radio drama studios, created exciting new online experiences, managed the delivery of outside broadcast vehicles, playout systems and broadcast infrastructure. I invented the BBC Radio 3 “HD Sound” streaming service and have taken radio beyond stereo, leading delivery of all the BBC Proms Concerts in surround sound.


I am a member of the Institute of Professional Sound and the Audio Engineering Society and speak at international conferences. If you need to take advantage of the latest developments in audio technology, I can probably help.

Loudness at BVE


I spoke at the Broadcast Video Exhibition in London about standards for audio over IP, including AES67 and the recently published Open Control Architecture standard AES70. Audio over IP offers the opportunity to create very flexible broadcast facilities at a much smaller cost than traditional audio installations, but you need to completely rethink resilience and support. Get in touch if you think AoIP might be for you, I can provide truly independent advice.

Radio for South Sudan


Two engineers from South Sudan visited Brun Audio Consulting in November 2016. I took them to the headquarters of Broadcast Radio in Hull, where the engineers assembled and tested a radio station consisting of two studios, an apparatus room and a phone-in system in two days. Credit to them and Broadcast Radio that everything worked first time! Two identical radio stations will now be shipped to South Sudan for installation, and one will run entirely from solar power!
