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.
