    SESSION PROGRAMME (the session order and final content is to be confirmed)

    °    Audio Interconnections and Fault Finding
    Hugh Robjohns (Audio Consultant and Technical Editor of Sound on Sound magazine) will cover the basics of analogue audio connectivity and how to identify and fix common faults. Essential learning for all new audio engineers, and a great refresher for the more seasoned.
    °    Audio over IP
    A subject every sound engineer needs to know about. Richard Merrick (Broadcast Audio Manager) and Daniel Solomon (IT Systems Manager, TTS&L) will be busy demonstrating how to implement AoIP in the real world, building robust systems and passing on tips and tricks to keep your audio flowing reliably.
    °    Latency & Lip Sync
    Sound Supervisors Andy James and Pete Bridges will investigate the increasingly common problem of lip-sync in broadcast systems. They'll look at the causes, how to measure it, and how to fix it.
    °    Live Audio for Large Events
    Griff Hewis (renowned live sound engineer) will explain how he designs and mixes audio for large events, and will take us through a case study of an immersive audio event at the Royal Albert Hall.
    °    Location to Post
    What do post want from location audio these days and what exactly can they fix? Kate Davis (Dubbing Mixer/Re-recording Mixer) will explain all.
    °    One Take Wonders
    Kiff McManus (Production Sound Mixer on "Boiling Point") and Simon Bishop ("Lost in London") describe the practical and technical difficulties that they had to overcome with these successful feature films.
    °    Psychoacoustics
    Dr Russell Mason (Senior Lecturer on the Tonmeister Course at University of Surrey) will explain the science of sound perception and delve into spatial audio.
    °    The Dark Arts of RF
    Marcus Blight (Sennheiser) will take us through the theory of RF and Jonathan Edwards (Terry Tew Sound & Light) will look at some of the practical aspects, including spectrum management and mixing analogue and digital systems.

    If you are self-employed the costs for attendance (including travel) can be set as a CPD business expense against your end of year tax bill.
    If you are an employee
    we feel sure that your employer will appreciate the benefit to the company knowledge base of allowing you to attend. The costs can, likewise, be set against any company training budget.


    Over the weekend other engaging and interesting 'side-attractions' are being planned in collaboration with various manufacturers, suppliers and facilities. Companies in attendance will be: Calrec, CEDAR (Saturday), Everything Audio, emerging, Raycom, Rycote. There will also be a Pro-Tools demo room with the facility to work on your problem audio.

    Should you wish to be accompanied by a partner, to share your accomodation, there will be a modest half-board upgrade charge to cover breakfast and dinner, etc. This charge will need to be paid directly to the UoW at check-in. Advance notice is required and so please contact the organisers if you want to take advantage of this offer. There is plenty for a partner to do and visit in the local area, whilst you are fully engaged during the day.

    The organisers may find, for many reasons, that it is necessary to change or amend the intended schedule and or facilities or even, without liability, cancel the event. Any known changes or amendments will be published on this site, and where or when possible registered attendees will be notified by email.
