At the moment, audio technology is undergoing a transition unseen before. The ever-increasing usage of multi-channel formats in all areas - from theater to broadcasting - and the ongoing merger of computer networking and audio applications require extended know-how from designers and users.
For the third year in a row, Stage Tec organized two audio-related training courses with renowned speakers from the fields of audio research, development, and deployment. The courses are meant to be a platform for experience exchange and knowledge imparting and aim at sound engineers and technical executives of broadcasting services and theaters, and scoping engineers.
There are not only presentations but also the chance of participating in sessions and discussions. The event was accompanied by product exhibitions and workshops; for example, the big Ü2000 O.B. Truck of the Mefisto production company - an excellent instance of audio-technology implementation - was freely accessible for investigation. The hall was equipped with a large multi-channel sound-reinforcement installation by Klein + Hummel and a conferencing/interpreting system by Sennheiser. The entire event was simultaneously interpreted to English and French.
