d&b audiotechnik to host Electroacoustics seminar at ABTT 2017
Mon, 22 May 2017 11:05
On Wednesday 7th June, d&b audiotechnik will be presenting its time honoured
Electroacoustics seminar at the ABTT Theatre Show, at Londons iconic Alexandra
Palace. The free to attend education event is ideal for anyone wanting to know
more about how loudspeakers interact with their environment and how that affects
what the listener hears. Plus, anyone who registers will automatically receive free
admission to the exhibition floor, a unique environment in which to meet industry
professionals and see whats new in theatre technology.
With the scheduled seminars at d&b GBs Gloucestershire base often booked up, its
a great opportunity to take part this year and a natural stepping stone to d&bs
more product focused workshops.
The seminar has played a central role in the international d&b education calendar,
and is for anyone looking to better understand the principles of electroacoustics for
sound system design and engineering. Now something of an industry standard, the
session is suited to all levels of experience, and asks questions such as: how does
sound propagate? And how do sound waves combine? In typical d&b style, the
friendly approach will provide informative answers in a light-hearted way, with
plenty of practical experiments and demonstrations.
Id argue this seminar is the most important thing d&b does in terms of its
education and training program, says presenter Oran Burns. It goes back to the
absolute basics. We know some sound engineers out there go about their work, and
whether out of repetition or experience they understand a certain action gets a
certain result, but sometimes without fully understanding why. Thats why getting to
grips with the principles of electroacoustics is so important, because it explains the
underlying mechanics of whats going on in any scenario. In terms of sound system
design and engineering these are our building blocks, for quite literally everything
we do without them nothing else makes much sense.
To allow time for visiting the show, the session will begin at 11:00 and finish at
16:00 with a one hour break for lunch. Spaces are limited so book as soon as you
can. To register, please visit http://www.dbaudio.co
