Spring is the traditional season for new product introductions in the pro audio and radio markets. This year, the editors of Pro Sound News, Mix and Radio World are working together to produce the first-ever Pro Audio & Radio Tech Summit, to be held virtually on April 1.

The free one-day event will feature an exhibition floor, panel presentations, live chat and a host of media presentations showcasing the latest technologies and trends in radio and pro audio. Over the past year, with the rise in remote production and rapid changes in distribution, the radio and pro audio industries have undergone similar technological challenges. Pro Audio & Radio Tech Summit will feature two individual program tracks within a single exhibition hall. In each program track, we’ll explore how manufacturers and users are making use of both current and emerging technologies in order to keep the media coming.


Remote Production. Immersive Music. Audio Networking. Audio Education. Podcasting. All this and more will be explored in the Pro Audio program track of the first-ever Pro Audio & Radio Tech Summit. Through expert panel presentations, sponsor demos, attendee networking, Pro Sound News and Mix bring manufacturers, engineers, producers, musicians, educators and industry experts together to look at the state of music production as we come out of the most disruptive year in memory.


Radio broadcasters will learn about the future of radio infrastructure including the impact of trends like hybrid radio, virtualization and broadcasting from home. What will the studio of the future look like, and will we even have one? How far will the industry go toward a “virtual air chain”? Sessions will explore trends in audio over IP and transmitters; why hybrid radio matters and what it can do; what’s next in all-digital for AM; and how to get the most out of your radio station’s stream.
