Anyone a recent scan for Encore, Vegas?
« on: April 26, 2019, 08:33:33 am »

Hi folks,

Heading to Vegas next month and would appreciate if anyone has a recent scan for the Encore?
Peter Erskine's on Best Audio is from 2016.

Thanks in advance.

Someone enlighten me please ... how much value is there in an old scan?  Even one from yesterday may not show potential troubles for today.

Pre-production, things to watch out for.. trends (is there something that's there in 2016 and now?), several people saying there's a weird in-house rf nonsense. Endless reasons.

I find it incredibly useful to have a picture before going in, before doing my own scans. But each to their own..

There's a lot of value when compared to no scan. Obviously, the more recent the better, and now with the re-pack going on this is critical.
I will always try and do my coordination in advance of getting to the venue. Using IAS, I have access to their TV database, but almost invariably, there are inaccuracies. Having a scan that was done in the venue can answer questions like: "Well the database says that Ch-21 is active in that city, but does it actually get into the venue, and if so, at what level?"
My experience has been that once I do my own scan on site, I may have to move a few things around, but that most of my coordination is correct. Put another way, a previous scan is useful on a macro level (DTV, unusually high noise floor) and an on-site, day-of scan is necessary on a micro level to find transmits that are on in the venue (house intercoms and IFB's are really common).

If you need accurate convention/meeting room scan data, why not just scan on the 1st day of your show? It's how I do it. The move in day ensures that other companies units aren't in play because the rooms are empty. It shouldn't take more than 20 minutes to walk those halls. Also, be aware that the Encore is connected to the Wynn, & their meeting rooms can be accessed through the same halls. However, the distance is a country mile, & I never worry about Wynn rooms talking to Encore rooms. If I get booked there within the next couple weeks, I'll send you my scans. I would never use the generic TV info provided by IAS. It's outdated.

That's exactly the point, it's not for convention/meeting. This will be 30+ channels, so there needs to be a good spread of equipment channels to ensure it can all fit into the local spectrum. I have my usual processes, but its always good to see real world scans, when a site visit isn't practical.
