About the Event

Ike Zimbel will take you through the RF set-up and deployment of one of 2018’s top grossing stadium tours. Managing over thirty antennas, eight receive zones, post – repack spectrum to work with and over 100 frequencies to coordinate every day…what could possibly go wrong?

Karyn McGrath brings the voices of thousands of different people to the airwaves every year. Tact and techniques when putting lav mics into clothing like you’ve never imagined. Karyn brings her tricks and treats us to a lesson in the art of miking.

Rob Poretti addresses the newest spectrum changes. Learn Industry Canada updates and the impacts of and how they will affect your audio transmitters and receivers.
