PLASA 2016: Check out what exhibitors and guest speakers were doing at PLASA 2016

Phil WardThis month: Collateral Damage

". . . All the leading manufacturers devote much attention to preparing their output for bad days at the office, and it's amazing just how many tests are carried out and how many eventualities are foreseen."

ReadThe Conductor

The ConductorThis month: Bring back the filament lamp!

"The old power supplies were known as 'linear' power supplies: as the voltage of the mains rises and falls, so the current consumption rises and falls in sync. Modern electronic supplies don't do that . . "

ReadCrew Cuts

Crew CutsThis month: Sue Collier

"My love of music started very young. My Gran was a piano teacher and I was well into the viola and recorder!""

ReadSecond Fix

Second FixThis month: Who needs project managers anyway?

"We didn't share the same concept of project management as they did. When we suggested that they might need to have someone directing the project, they looked at us with incredulity, it was as if we suggested that we needed ice-cream delivered every day."

ReadVideo Matters

Richard CadenaThis month: Code is Right on Time

"SMPTE timecode is fundamentally an analogue signal, so later on in 1986, Evan Brooks of Digidesign and Chris Meyer of Sequential Circuits developed a way of transmitting SMPTE timecode digitally . . ."


QandAThis month: Phil Ward talks to AV consultant Emma Bigg

"In the last five years venues as a whole have had to generate income and footfall in new ways. They can't just be one thing, but have to offer multiple attractions. There's a lot of business in private events . . ."
