EAW has launched the B4 Roadshow, an education initiative encompassing both general audio training and focus on new EAW technologies and products. The B4 Roadshow kicks off with several dates this spring in Europe before moving to North America for coast-to-coast dates. (The latest itinerary can be viewed at www.eaw.com/support/b4/.)
Each two- and three-day B4 event features a full day of Smaart School, focusing on the fundamentals of EAW Smaart and the new Smaart Version 6 measurement and analysis software. Taught by EAW Smaart experts Jamie Anderson and Martyn “Ferrit” Rowe, the class will also include tips and techniques for large-scale system alignment and response optimization.
This is followed by a day of "System Bootcamp"—led by EAW training manager Bernie Broderick—where attendees are provided with diverse live and installed audio coursework, as well as a step-by-step overview of configuring, rigging, powering, processing and tuning a full-scale sound reinforcement system.
Pre-registration is required for the Smaart School course, at a cost of $300 (USD) that includes breakfast, lunch and all course-related materials. There is no cost for System Bootcamp and the Tradeshow, which are open to all interested audio professionals.
