What is Sound - 1 & 2 March 2016

This course has taken place you can still book any of the individual application days

The two-day foundation course, 'What is Sound', took place at the Royal College of Physicians. Initially covering the basics, it ensured the theory has some real life meaning. A number of practical demonstrations were included to help students really understand key points. This 2 day course earned 16 CTS Renewal Units (RU).

 

Application Days

Attendees can choose to specialise in a number of areas. The first two application days - Corporate AV and Education focus more on design. The third day High Performance Sound is for you to understand what to do when systems get a little bigger or when music is required. Practical demonstrations are included as part of each course. Each of the application days earns you 8 CTS Renewal Units (RU).

High Performance Sound - 13 April 2016

09:00 Registration

09:30 - 17:30 Training course. Coffee/tea breaks and lunch included for all attendees.

The High Performance Audio training session is an application day with a difference. The rules change when things get loud. High quality and high audio level systems are needed for many different applications. Taking place at the impressive Cadogan Hall in Sloane Square, this day sets out what you need to consider for such a system. It might be for a larger school theatre, an AV conference system that needs to pack a punch or a larger lecture hall. Most importantly students will be able to make a noise! Ear plugs will be supplied.
 

A detailed programme for all courses is available by clicking here. Topics will include:

• Why loud is different
• Requirements for capture for large systems
• More about mixers
• More loudspeaker coverage
• Higher power amplifiers
• Power for audio
• Loudspeaker technologies Part 2
• Delay and feedback
• Audio and its impact on others
• Gain structure

Sample Documentation

Course notes will be supplied to help students with their next project. This will contain drawings of the systems worked on during the course as well as templates and guidance for the different types of engineering documentation needed to create an audio design.
