Audio & Studio

Experience the entire product world of professional audio technology. The focus is on live and concert sound reinforcement as well as fixed installations and studio and broadcast solutions. On the outdoor area, companies will present large PA systems under real conditions. In addition, there is an extensive supporting programme on the Main Stage, which focuses in particular on future topics such as IP-based transmission technology and immersive audio applications.

ProAudio College

Audio professionals and, of course, all interested industry newcomers have a new place to go: the ProAudio College, which is being implemented together with the Bildungswerk des Verbandes Deutscher Tonmeister (BiW-vdt). 

Vortrag auf der Bühne

The Pro Audio College offers a four-day advanced training programme. The focus of the lecture programme is on current trends in the sound reinforcement scene, innovations around home studio productions as well as exclusive training modules from the SQQ7 curriculum. 

The range of topics of the ProAudio College is divided into three strands:

Firstly, the curriculum of the SQQ7 educational standard. This was developed by a diverse working group under the leadership of the #VDT and defines learning objectives for further training to become a "certified professional sound specialist".

SQQ7 was presented at Prolight + Sound 2022 by the VDT and the Interessengemeinschaft Veranstaltungswirtschaft and includes e.g. focal points such as hearing training, physical basics of acoustics, signal sources and #signal #processing, network technology and intercom systems.

Current tasks in the sound reinforcement scene are on the agenda in the second thematic strand. How can you deliver a good sound reinforcement in a challenging room? What should a newcomer to sound reinforcement pay particular attention to? What are the latest developments in the industry?

The third topic is about productions in home and project studios. Here, the programme addresses the important core questions that every studio operator faces during productions.

Participants will receive a written confirmation as proof of the knowledge they have gained.
The lectures will be held partly in German and partly in English. 

More information and the programme will follow.
