Allen & Heath reports that it had a large presence at the recently concluded 2022 AES Convention in New York City, with an expanded booth presence and multiple dLive training sessions.
The main booth featured the full range of the company’s products, from compact analog ZED series mixers and interfaces to flagship dLive digital 128-channel mixing consoles. Customers had the opportunity to get hands-on experience with hardware and receive advice from staff.
Training sessions were offered as well, with veteran live sound engineer Shawn McLoughlin hosting four separate sessions on the dLive platform, providing an overview of the hardware as well as practical tips and tricks for configuration and mixing.
The booth also offered the AHM series of audio matrix processors that are designed for commercial installations such as schools, restaurants, houses of worship, and other similar environments. Along with the processors themselves, Allen & Heath demonstrated various hardware and software control interfaces along with the variety of expanders comprising the “Everything I/O” ecosystem. Booth patrons saw the complex AHM back-end in System Manager software as well as the simplified controllers and Custom Control interfaces available on proprietary touch panels or various mobile devices.
“It was great to join the well over 100 audio exhibitors at the Javits Center and get a chance to connect with new and existing Allen & Heath fans across the industry,” notes Allen & Heath USA director of marketing Jeff Hawley. “As new products like the expanded install-focused AHM Series made their AES debut in the exhibit area, we had the pleasure of offering up a number of packed training sessions on advanced live sound techniques with our dLive Digital Mixing System. Cool tech, engaged audio professionals, a chance to reconnect with old friends and to make new ones—AES New York 2022 definitely checked all of the boxes!”
