Hard Rock Hotel to host pre-Infocomm mic master classes

DPA Microphones and Lectrosonics will present wired and wireless microphone master classes at Club Vinyl in the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas on the day before InfoComm 2018 begins.

On Tuesday 5 June at Club Vinyl at The Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, DPA Microphones and Lectrosonics will co-host a day of Wired and Wireless Microphone Master Classes. The Master Classes are free to audio professionals.

The two manufacturers specialise in providing high-quality solutions for professional sound engineers to help them achieve the best results possible for applications including live sound, film, broadcast and theatre.

Hosted by Eric Stahlhammer of DPA Microphones and Kelly Fair of Lectrosonics, the Master Class on Wired and Wireless Microphones will be held from 9.30 to 4 PST, with presentations from each of the manufacturers. From 9.45 to 12, Kelly Fair from Lectrosonics will present his Master Class on FCC Re-Pack, Frequency Coordination, Antenna Usage and a brief Product Overview.  Then, lunch will be provided. From 1 to 4, Eric Stahlhammer from DPA will present a Master Class on Microphone Technology for High Performance Venues.

“We are looking forward to taking a deep dive into how a great microphone can help change the game in performance venues,” said Eric Stahlhammer, regional sales manager at DPA Microphones. “We often forget to consider that the conversion of acoustic to electrical energy is the most critical part of the sound chain. We can only manipulate what we have captured. Starting with great technique and the best microphone for the job is something we are excited to demonstrate and discuss in Las Vegas.”

“We all know how challenging the RF environment has become for wireless mics and in ear monitoring systems,” said Kelly Fair, Western regional sales manager and “one of the fanatics” at Lectrosonics. “That’s why it’s important for us to discuss the application of sound fundamentals of RF management and antenna, and RF distribution techniques. We are especially excited to do this in a master class setting in Las Vegas – one of the most difficult RF environments I have come across.”

Club Vinyl is located inside The Hard Rock Hotel at 4455 Paradise Blvd., Las Vegas, NV 89169. To sign up for this free event, please register HERE.
