ETLive Returns To LDI, Adds Compact Speaker Demos

ETLive, the premier forum for presenting live audio products in a real-world concert staged setting, will once again be presented October 22-24 in Las Vegas during LDI2010, in parking lot Silver 1, directly in front of the Las Vegas Convention Center (Hall C).

ETLive will feature two types of demonstration formats. The first format will present up to six stages of live performance demonstrations in a round-robin format. Each stage will have a band performance of multiple genres presenting the full capabilities of a complete sound system as would be presented in a real-world concert environment.

The second format, new this year, is a seventh stage, presenting “compact solution” loudspeaker demonstration. This stage is designed to present loudspeaker choices for the smaller listening environment for the house of worship, corporate or music venue environment (1,500+ seats). Numerous loudspeaker manufacturers will hang single line array compact solution stacks and present the same source music through the system.

“The ‘compact solution’ stage is an added complement to the larger stage presentations,” says Jeff Turner, event production director. “This one-of-a-kind event provides the listener and potential buyer of PA systems a unique opportunity to critique multiple sound systems for multiple applications by some of the most prestigious pro audio manufacturers in a non-restricted, non-reflective outdoor listening environment,” he adds.

In addition to the outdoor event, ETLive presents numerous educational seminars for the industry, including mixing console techniques, monitor console techniques, front-of-house console overview (discussion on unique qualities of console design), loudspeaker systems, rigging techniques, SMAART seminars, and more to be announced.
