Which product/s caught your eye at Prolight+Sound 2018?

There were several products, particularly in the LED hall, that I found impressive. In no specific order Hypervsn – LED Display, which is aimed at the install market, but may have application in the live corporate events market for a more interesting set look. I was also impressed with AVDrop’s modular backdrop system, a modular and configurable solution that allows you to create stage backdrops, divider walls, projection screens, and self-standing screens, among others. Yes Tech, one of the newer manufacturers on the market, had an impressive range of LED screens on show.

Do you feel that these products are well suited to the local market?

I do feel that there is a place for a number of these products in the South African market. However, price point remains a challenge, especially in the LED market.

What was the overall highlight of Prolight+Sound 2018?

The opportunity to network with industry colleagues.
