A second European RDM Developers Plugfest for 2012

Following the success of the first European RDM Developers Conference and Plug Fest in April 2012, a second European event date has been added for 2012. Sponsored by PLASA’s Technical Resource Office, this will once again take place at Gatwick Manor Hotel (see details below) from 4-5 October 2012.
Feedback from April’s European PlugFest:
“The format was spot on with just the right amount of theoretical presentation balanced with quality practical development time. The venue worked really well and we will definitely be back next time”

The format will be an advance on April’s meeting which concentrated on introducing newcomers to RDM and discussions concerning RDM basics.

October’s session will focus its discussions on the issue of compliance. Currently, no consistent, uniform method of RDM testing exists, so manufacturers design in isolation and test to different interpretations of the standard. The Plug Fest will provide a forum for informal discussion with the aim of formulating a plan to standardise these processes for the future. In addition there will be separate test locations for the three different categories of RDM equipment: Controllers, Splitters and Responders. This will give delegates an opportunity to bring their own RDM-compliant products for ‘plug & test’ sessions.

This event is organised in conjunction with PLASA Technical Resources and supported by industry leading manufacturers, many of whom will be attending the meeting. Full details of the discussion plan will be released nearer the time.

Attendance is by registration only.


Date: Thursday 4th and Friday 5th October 2012
