Audio Issues in Simulation — Theory and Practice

Speaker: Mr Todd Dadaleares​ 
Date: 3 November 201​7 (Fri)  | Time: 1320 - 1450 | LocationAcademia, Level 2, L2-T1
Workshop Level: Novice to Advanced

This workshop will provide an overview of sound transmission, recording and reproduction. A special emphasis will be put on audio terminology to allow attendees to communicate clearly about sound-related problems they encounter in the world of healthcare simulation. 
The workshop will also describe different types of audio components, wires, cable and audio connectors that may be encountered in a simulation centre. Design features of several centres will be highlighted to show how these tools have been implemented for improved learner engagement and enhanced function within the simulation centre. Explanation and comparison of the connection and similarities between musical composition/performance and creative, complex simulation production. 

Participants will see and hear how this complex and elaborate system is laid out across a networked 20,000 square foot simulation centre. Blueprints, signal path flows, video and audio will enhance this portion.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Understand different microphones types and utilisation of each for simulation
  2. Describe the use of mixers and digital vs analog signal processing tools for live audio adjustment
  3. Understand the audio signal pathways common to many simulation centres to allow trouble-shooting of audio equipment
