Network Audio Visual Solutions on the Converged Network

Antony Price - Prolight + Sound Middle East speaker

Over the last few years, AV solutions have increasingly, become the responsibility of the IT departments within any organisation. This has been a key driver behind delivery of not just audio and video on the network but the adoption of IT security standards and monitoring services. Solutions must now be designed to confirm to these standards allowing scalable and proactive monitoring solutions which are transparent to the end user.

  • Leveraging standard IP protocols to deliver scalable audio and video solutions
  • Logical segmentation of a network
  • IP subnetting – What do the numbers mean?
  • Bandwidth – How much do I really need?
  • Network Security – Basic Overview
  • Proactive monitoring – RMS and SNMP
  • Leveraging IP for control systems

Who should attend?
System designers, IT management & support, system integrators and installation engineers.

Hosted by ANTONY PRICE | Senior Applications Engineer – Networked AV and IT integration
Antony started his technology career in the IT industry, designing network infrastructure and windows server environments (physical and later virtual) for corporate and educations customers. Several requests for education customers lead Antony into the new (and far more fun) world of AV. Antony has spent the last 13 years working with AMX products as an integrator then distributor and finally 6 years ago joined AMX prior to the HARMAN acquisition.

Pro Audio System Design with Microphone & Mixing Essentials for Houses of Worship (Africa)

Steven Ellis - Prolight + Sound Middle East speaker

In Africa, the majority of churches have a capacity of circa. 2000 and could be considered as comparable to a typical music venue / theatre auditorium.

  • Types of HOW, with a focus on Africa
  • Challenges for accurate specification of system
  • Challenges for Technicians
  • Introduction to microphone types and application
  • Pros and Cons of musician monitor options.
  • Configuring a mixing console for varied / sporadic program material

Who should attend?
System designers, system integrators, installation engineers and HOW technicians.
