L-Acoustics will soon be taking advantage of NAMM 2020 in mid-January to provide considerable foresight into the future of live audio system design and deployment with ten unique hours of presentations throughout the show. In collaboration with both The NAMM Show and The Audio Engineering Society (AES), L-Acoustics will be presenting five two-hour “AES Academy” educational sessions on a variety of forward-thinking topics, including immersive audio, AVB networking, and system setup and calibration advances.

“Over the past few years, we’ve really moved beyond peoples’ misperceptions of immersive audio and shown that it’s fast becoming the ‘new normal’ for live concerts and theatrical shows,” shares L-Acoustics product manager Scott Sugden, who will be hosting three of the manufacturer’s five seminars. “With production technologies advancing so rapidly, audience expectations are higher than ever, and we’ll be helping live sound professional attending NAMM learn how to best navigate and capitalize upon the new immersive audio trend, which is experiencing tremendous growth right now.”

“In other sessions, we’ll also be shedding light on the many benefits of AVB networking via Avnu’s new Milan standard, as well as showing attendees numerous ways to streamline the design and deployment of their loudspeaker systems,” he adds. “The NAMM Show truly is the global crossroads of the music, sound, and entertainment technology products industries, and these seminars will be an excellent way to get a jump on both the trends and tech of the future.”

L-Acoustics’ five NAMM 2020 seminars are as follows: Understanding Line Source Behavior for Better Optimization on January 17; Large-Scale Loudspeaker System Calibration, from Simulation-Based Design to Onsite Tuning on January 17; Scaling from Pre-production to Live Performance with L-ISA Immersive Hyperreal Sound Technology on January 17; Audio and Control Data Over a Single Redundant AVB/Milan network on January 17; and 360° Live EDM Performances with L-ISA Immersive Hyperreal Sound Technology on January 18.

“Each one of these educational NAMM presentations is derived from our extensive training program, which is designed to enable technicians, system engineers, and sound designers to get the best performance from L-Acoustics systems,” adds Dr. Etienne Corteel, global director of Education & Scientific Outreach for L-Acoustics. “For those who wish to further advance their knowledge beyond what is shared at these AES Academy sessions, there are many US and international class listings to choose from in the Training section of our website.”
