RF Management for Live Events
Event on 2016-06-22 09:30:00
Who? This course is suitable for anyone working with radio microphones and wireless monitoring systems in live event environments. You might be a live sound engineer, audio systems engineer, sound designer, AV installer, theatre technician, school AV technician, church engineer or anyone else in a role responsible for the management and operation of radio mic systems for live events. What? Radio microphones and wireless in-ear monitoring systems are playing an ever increasing role in live event productions.

How do you ensure multiple systems on a busy site are intermodulation free? What can you do to protect yourself from interference and poor RF performance? This course will present a detailed look at managing radio systems in live event environments through a mixture of theory and practical demonstrations using products and software tools from the industry leading manufacturers including Shure and Sennheiser. You'll also learn about the latest regulations, licensing and how upcoming developments in wireless spectrum allocation are going to impact on PMSE users for live events. Agenda Understanding the wireless spectrum. Frequency plotting and licensing. What is intermodulation, why is it a problem and how to design your systems so that they are intermodulation free.

The Maine Brewers' Guild is slated to be the biggest brewfest in Maine and your best chance to try Maine's best beers. Summer Session is the only brewfest run by and in support of the Maine craft beer industry – we know what beer fans love, and we want to share our love of beer with you while creating the perfect festival environment. So come join us in the vast expanse of Thompson's Point waterfront venue in Portland – outdoors and under the sun for our annual Maine Brewers' Guild Festival – Summer Session 2016 on Saturday July 23rd, from 1-5PM, with a VIP session starting at Noon.

Food available for purchase from a huge variety of food trucks.   What makes our festival so awesome? We're glad you asked… BEST BEER IN MAINE – Maine's best brewers will be showcasing their wares from all across the state and we'll have more Maine breweries pouring than any festival all year. GUEST BREWERIES – After last year's success, we are sticking with the invitational format – our Maine brewers will invite their friends from out-of-state breweries so we will have beers on tap that you have never tried, from breweries who don't normally sell their beer in Maine.  LIVE MUSIC – Jam out to some of New England's best fest music but keep it far enough away from the beer so you can still interact with the brewers and ask your questions. PLENTY OF SPACE to spread out – Thompson's Point is acres and acres of waterfront land. No crowded gymnasiums here. LAWN CHAIRS WELCOME – we want you to get comfortable, so bring your lawn chairs, picnic blankets, cornhole set, and make a day of it! BEER SCHOOL CLASSES – Learn from Maine's brewers in short, 10-15 minute 'classes' within the brewfest discussing all sorts of topics related to beer and brewing and giving you the chance to ask those burning questions and learn from the pros. No registration required. (list of classes is below) The ANNUAL 'HOMEGROWN BEER' COMPETITION –  We'll be inviting brewers will be brew a beer made with Maine grown grains and malted in Maine. All attendees will have the chance to try them all and vote on your favorite to see which brewery will take home the trophy! #DrinkLocal FOOD TRUCKS – They will be there and ready to serve you, from the beginning to the end – so bring an appetite! Participating trucks will be announced soon! SUPPORTS YOUR LOCAL CRAFT BEER COMMUNITY – Proceeds from our brewfest benefit the Maine Brewers' Guild in their work to promote and protect craft beer. (We're the people who changed the laws so brewers could pour their own beer at these festivals!) This is our biggest event of the year and the primary fundraiser for our nonprofit. Drink beer in support of beer! TIME TO CATCH YOUR BREATH – Although we'll have to stop serving beer at 5PM, you'll be welcome to hang out till around 6PM, grab a bite to eat from one of the food trucks, and take in the beauty of an evening on the water in Portland surrounded by thousands of your closest friends.  PUBLIC TRANSPORT – We're working to figure out ways to get you to and from the festival safely. And if you're coming from Boston, the bus or trains heading into Portland will drop you right to the festival site. (The event is right behind the Amtrak and Concord Coach station). We'll also coordinate in-town Portland pick ups via public transport.  PARTICIPATING BREWERIES:  Allagash Brewing Company Atlantic Brewing Austin Street Brewery Banded Horn Brewing Company Barreled Souls Baxter Brewing Bigelow Brewing Company Bissell Bros Brewing Company Boothbay Craft Brewery Dirigo Brewing Company Foundation Brewing Company Funky Bow Beer Company Geaghan Bros.
