Working Group on Characterization of Windscreen Acoustical Performance
Chair: Gregory Lyons
Scope: Develop and maintain a test method to characterize at specific air speeds and directions the effectiveness of a microphone windscreen in reducing noise generated at a microphone due to turbulence created by airflow over a microphone.
Responsible for the following published standards:
- ANSI/ASA S1.17, Part 1 – Microphone Windscreens – Part 1: Test Procedures for Measurements of Insertion Loss in Still Air
- ANSI/ASA S1.17, Part 2 – Microphone Windscreens – Part 2: Measurement of Windscreen, Noise, and Moving Air
