Trinnov Audio: Audio Over IP and Home cinema - What it Means for Me
Presenter: Tom Garrett

This presentation will cover differing standards, implementation, and challenges.

Tom Garrett is an International Sales manager for Trinnov Audio, a French based manufacturer. A passionate instructor with a focus on home cinema and a deep understanding of immersive audio, Tom goes to great lengths to make these topics accessible and relevant to all.

Tom started his career over 20 years ago as a sales assistant with a CEDIA UK founding member, where he soon discovered his love of home cinema and integrated technology. He then progressed his career in the custom installation arena before co-launching a distribution company where he successfully introduced a number of well known North American brands to the UK market. Trinnov Audio was later added to the brand portfolio: the French brand was so impressed with his technical ability that he was recruited by them!

Tom is originally from Wales, a small remote part of the UK that is known for its love of rugby, rain, and singing. When at home - living on a small remote Scottish Island - he enjoys cooking, cycling with his family, and avoiding been eaten alive by midges.

Monitor Audio: Loudspeakers, Directivity and Layouts
Presenter: Michael Hedges, Technical Director

This course is a brief introduction to loudspeakers and how they work with a focus on directivity and how to place loudspeakers to achieve one of two design goals. Goal one, to cover an area with consistent sound and goal two, the reproduction of a surround experience. The talk will also look at a few issues that can be found along the way and will mainly focus on the educational side of loudspeakers and how they work rather than physical installation challenges.
