OpenStage will take place at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts (RADA) in Central London on 12 May and will be jointly hosted by d&b audiotechnik, Roland Systems Group, Shure, TTA, RTS Telex and Figure 53 (known for QLab).

The event for theatre sound designers, engineers and students invites them to engage with designers and engineers from six prominent manufacturers of audio technology and software, and discuss the latest developments and ideas for the future.

The busy event will comprise a rich mix of presentations, Q&As and discussions, as well as some new products with which to interact.

The OpenStage forum will take place at RADA’s Jerwood-Vanbrugh Theatre on 12 May.

The programme will include short presentations on: integrating QLab show control with performer localisation and tracking; frequency agility in wireless mic technology; the falling costs of digital audio infrastructure and control; the latest reports on the spectrum sell-off; the future of comms in theatre; and a look at the ‘mysteries’ of electroacoustics and the future of theatre sound.

OpenStage is free, but places are limited, so must be reserved in advance. There will be small product workshops in addition to main seminars. The day’s programme runs from 9.30-5pm and tickets can be reserved via http://guestlistapp.com/events/44031. More details can also be found as they emerge on the OpenStage Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/OpenStage/114501391961387?sk=wall
