Five manufacturers from the pro audio industry will head up a networking event for audio professionals in Seattle on August 17.
The Sound Summit Seattle day will be hosted by Danish manufacturer DPA Microphones, real-time communications provider Clear-Com, broadcast specialists Lectrosonics, plus US-based Sound Devices and K-Tek.
Organisers hope the day will provide a space for industry professionals to collaborate, network and discuss their techniques and tools for audio production.
"The Sound Summit series has [previously] been a very successful way for these manufacturers to come together with the professional audio community and learn about the industry’s needs,” said Karl Winkler, vice president of sales and service at Lectrosonics. “We are excited to have Clear-Com join us as we share ideas with the professionals in the Seattle community.”
With the co-operation of some of the industry’s most well respected audio professionals, attendees will get a chance to speak one-on-one with leading manufacturers who specialise in audio production.
The five manufacturers will also showcase their newest products, including Clear-Com’s FreeSpeak II wireless intercom system; DPA’s d:vice digital audio interface; Sound Devices’ MixPre-3 and MixPre-6 audio recorders; Lectrosonics’ Duet Digital Wireless IEM/IFB Monitor system; and K-Tek’s Boom Box microphone boom stand.
