PLASA 2016: Check out what exhibitors and guest speakers were doing at PLASA 2016
This month: The Wild Brew Yonder
"Stick it in Oklahoma during tornado season and I imagine it would generate some pretty syncopated jazz. That's if you ever found it again. In outer space, where there is no atmosphere, it would play the hits of Boney M."
This month: Ticking the wrong boxes . . .
". . . a certificate I checked recently had the earthing electrode as the connection to a truck's chassis which rather perplexed me, especially as it had rubber tyres and precious little electrical contact with earth."
This month: Robey Hopkins
"Iron Maiden in 1980 at the much-missed Birmingham Odeon was a bit of a life changer for me . . . age 13, I thought, 'I want to be involved in that!'."
This month: This really happened. What would you have done?
"This place holds 5,000 people and you say it's going to be fine when it's full. But what if it's half-full? Does it matter if 2,500 people die? What if only 500 people are inside, does it matter if they die?"
This month: Media Server Codecs
"Rather than send information about each pixel, information is sent only for those pixels that have changed and the rest of the frame is derived from special 'key frames' that are sent periodically and used for reference."
This month: Phil Ward talks to veteran sound engineer Brian Hillson
"It's about what the client wants, not what the supplier has. You win confidence by listening to their real needs and, if that genuinely is a Parker pen rather than a biro, that's what you should provide. By the same token, if it's the other way round there's no point in pushing the more expensive option."
