About the Event
Get a look into the working life of a touring RF engineer.
RF Technician Ike Zimbel will reprise his Live Sound Expo presentations from the 137th (LA 2014) and 139th (NYC 2015) AES Live Sound Expos on wireless matters.
- Part-1: RF Systems, Practical Considerations
Ike will take you through a wide variety of scenarios that you are likely to encounter in every-day use of wireless systems and highlight both the issues that arise and a practical approach to resolving and / or preventing them.
- Part-2: RF Coordination on the Road
Ike will take you through the process of getting 50+ channels of RF working in a different city every day as he recounts his experiences on the recent Shania Twain “Rock this Country” tour of North America. Just off a five-month road haul, he will compare the RF environments in North American arenas, and share a practical approach to working with wireless microphones, instruments and monitors in those environments and discusses wireless best practices.

Any chance there will be a live stream of this?
There is a chance, but we can’t say yet for certain whether this will happen for the upcoming meeting. We streamed meetings in the past through Ryerson’s internal service, but that option is no longer available to us, and we are working out a way to hopefully Livestream the event through their servers.
We’ll announce it if we are able!
Is this open to the pubic, or AES members only?
Yes, this meeting is open to the public.
Almost all of our meetings are open to our members and anyone else who wishes to attend. In the rare cases where this is not the case (usually because of limited capacity at a venue), we’ll note that in our bulletin and website.
Hope you can attend!
