Sessions at the 2017 show will include 'Is Point Source Fighting Back?', 'Using Tablets for mixing', and 'Pin the Mic on the Actor.'

PLASA Focus Glasgow will return to the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC) on 18 and 19 January 2017, bringing with it an expanded programme of seminars, panel sessions, console training and equipment demonstrations.

Highlights on day one will include panel sessions led by audio journalist Phil Ward, who presents ‘Is Point Source Fighting Back?’, an exploration of the varied applications of point source over line array, with some of the best examples coming from Scottish based sound designers and ‘The New Front of House - using tablets for mixing’, a look at when and where users should take advantage of iOS and Android as a mixing interface and when they shouldn’t.

On day two, Dave Philips of Shure UK will present ‘Wireless Mastered - RF & Digital 2016’. Here he will uncover the new RF landscape in the wake of the digital TV switchover and the rise of mobile phone ownership, as well as looking at digital wireless systems and why they should be included as part of any audio arsenal.

Zoe Milton from The Association of Sound Designers will also present 'Pin the Mic on the Actor’ where she will look at the many different options for mounting wireless mics and transmitters.

“This is an important year for PLASA and for the Scottish live events sector,” said PLASA’s events director Chris Toulmin. “We hope our continued investment in the Scottish market, through our Focus events and its seminar programme will reflect and support the Scottish government and VisitScotland’s recently unveiled ten-year strategy to grow this sector."
