Eric’s Bio Page at the AES –

When you step up to audio for corporate events, you will find that the clients are more demanding, with a higher expectation that the spoken word is heard very clearly. Corporate sound can be rewarding but it can also be difficult to accomplish, since “the look” is often more important than the optimal loudspeaker placement. The routing of signals can get very complicated, with multiple loudspeaker zones and teleconferencing. Our panel will describe years of frustration and success in the trenches at corporate events.
