Punters praise AC-ET digital switchover event

A series of sessions related to the 2012 digital switchover, held recently by the audio division of A.C. Entertainment Technologies, have been met by general approval by those who attended.

Held in conjunction with Sennheiser and Shure at AC-ET’s High Wycombe and Leeds offices, visitors were able to take part in a question and answer session led by members of the BEIRG committee (The British Entertainment Industry Radio Group). There were also several demonstrations of new Channel 38 compliant equipment and displays of other new products from Sennheiser and Shure.

“We've attended a couple of seminars previously at AC-ET, and indeed in this instance visited both open days at their High Wycombe and Leeds offices as we were keen to learn as much as possible about the ramifications of the digital switchover,” said James Hudson, director of Futurist Sound & Light. “It was time well spent and provided us with a great opportunity to get hands on with all of the new gear, as well as to spend time with the manufacturers and members of the BEIRG committee who were on hand to answer any questions.”“I had previously attended another A.C. Audio open day and found it a good experience,” said William Brown, owner of Libra Audio, who was present at the High Wycombe event. “Again, this event was very well managed and extremely hospitable. It had good content and the right level of interaction.” 

A.C. Audio has announced its commitment to ensuring that companies future proof themselves with up-to-date, Channel 38-ready wireless systems before the 2012 deadline arrives and before any possible equipment shortages arise. This includes carrying stock of the Sennheiser G3 GB 100, 300 and 500 series systems, as well as Shure UHF-R, SLX and PSM900 in-ear monitor systems, which are all compatible with the new changes.

Sennheiser has also revealed it is offering 0 per cent finance over a two-year period on Channel 38 wireless equipment until December 31st. For more information on any of the above, click here or call A.C. Audio on 0113 255 7666.
