The Point Source Audio Sounding Board: Combine Show Mix with Ops for All-in-One Headset Solution

The Point Source Audio Sounding Board Blog

The Point Source Audio Sounding Board Blog caught up with Lighting director Matt Jones on the Ed Sheeran's ÷ Tour (pronounced “Divide Tour”), which originated in Turin, Italy March 2017 and is the third world concert tour by the English singer and songwriter. On its second stop in the U.S. at AT&T Stadium in San Francisco on August 21, 2018, Jones discussed how Point Source Audio became an integral part of the production tech. This is a solution that is just as viable for theater makers as it is for the concert touring industry.
