For people wanting to stay in touch with global developments and innovations in musical products, recording technology and sound and lighting, NAMM (the National Association of Music Merchants) that was held earlier this year is considered a beneficial platform for the latest brands and products. Mediatech plays host to some of the exhibitors who attended this year’s trade show in Anaheim, California, and looks forward to presenting some of these brands to South African music makers and enthusiasts.

John Silver from Audiosure,-who recently picked up the award for overall best distributor at the Samson International Distributors meeting held at NAMM – has said that Samson has a variety of new products that are being introduced to the market, including new microphones, portable bluetooth systems and amplifiers. Alan and Heath announced that the ME-1 personal mixing system has arrived in South Africa and Audiosure is thrilled about having this displayed at Mediatech Africa.

“There is a big demand for musicians to be able control their musical performance, and this monitor does just that while staying compatible with almost any other mixer brand,’ says Silver. This, along with a new exciting undisclosed digital mixing product and various new lighting product ranges from Chauvet, can be found at the Audiosure stand at Mediatech this year.

Mediatech will take place from 17 – 1 9 July 2013 at the Coca-Cola Dome in Johannesburg and promises to be an exciting three days, showcasing the latest in cutting-edge technology.
