Listen up as LDI2017 tunes into the professional audio market in three big ways:
LDI: LIVE OUTSIDE: The second annual Live Outside event at LDI2017 turns the parking lot at the Las Vegas Convention Center into a dazzling array of technology displays and demos for outdoor festivals and events in non-permanent concert settings. Portable stages provide the perfect showcase for cutting-edge audio gear, teamed up with the latest in lighting and video for a dynamic presentation of the best new products for the festival market. And kick off your #LDI2017 weekend experience with a music festival, including food trucks, bars, and live entertainment!
AUDIO PAVILION: New this year at LDI2017 is an indoor audio pavilion: LDI Amplify, which provides audio manufacturers an opportunity to meet with the more than 13,000 attendees at LDI, more than 30% of which indicate they work with sound gear as part of their job. While Live Outside focuses on products for the outdoor festival market, LDI Amplify takes a look at gear for permanent installations such as theatres, houses of worship, clubs, cruise ships, and theme parks.
PROFESSIONAL TRAINING: Audio training is back at LDI with two initiatives in 2017:
- Sound Tracks: A series of sessions in the LDInnovation™ Conference are targeted at professional live sound engineers. These sessions include a keynote address on the future of the technology and craft of live sound by award-winning engineer Robert Scovill, who has worked at the forefront of touring sound in his four decades mixing artists like Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Rush, and Def Leppard.
- QLab 4: Used from Broadway to Britain’s West End, QLab4 is a powerful tool for audio, projections, and show control. A full day of hands-on training at LDI2017 teaches the new QLab 4 software for audio control, cue carts, and network functions.
Registration for LDI’s professional audio training will open at ldishow.com in the last week of June 2017.
