It is lightweight, set up within one day and isn’t unnerved by a stiff breeze- the Magic Sky pavilion provides a safe roof over the heads of the visitors at many worldwide events. From the BMW World in Munich, to the Berlin Fashion Week and including the Gazprom Event in Saint Petersburg the system, which can cover areas up to 1000 sq. meters, has been in service.
Whether boldly colourful or in noble design – flashy DJ Headphones can be seen everywhere on the German streets, even long after they had to make room for their smaller in ear counterparts, the headbuds , in the early 90’s.Since their revival, the DJ Headphones are no longer just a technical device, but have become much more of a fashion statement. Therefore it is only logical that a representative from this category is one of the winners of this year’s international design competition.
With their impressive show laser system, they ensure the “aha effect” at mega events as well as at smaller free time and cultural events. Within the industry HB Laser has made a name for itself with its elaborate projections and new laser technology. Last year the professionals also presented themselves in their best light at Prolight + Sound. During the four days at the trade fair, as well as in the online world of the Frankfurt trade show, they presented, among other things, some of their video projections and laser as well as light installations . They are not the only ones who have used the digital services of the trade fair.
Who doesn't want to stand on a stage in front of an international audience? Many small businesses have enough creative ideas, but they often lack the financial means, to present their ideas at an international lighting fair such as Prolight + Sound. Whether it is the stand rental, stand construction or promotional materials- the costs of participating in a trade fair simply bust many start-ups budget.
To once again experience John Lennon together with the Beatles or Elvis’ legendary dance live and in color on the stage, most of us will never be able to experience those things. However, if we take into account the newest developments in projection engineering, many long gone legends could seem very alive and in turn breathe new life into the entire music industry.
The combination of dance and music was compelling, the entire show fascinating and one of the biggest events in a long time. Those were just some of the comments about the current Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour.
Besides the acrobats, singers and dancers, it is the also artfulness of the audio and lighting, as well as the acoustic irradiation that makes this show an absolute must see event. Such renowned businesses as Meyer Sound, Martin Professional, DiGiCo and Optocore are the secret stars of the stage. These companies continually impress the visitors at Prolight + Sound with their high end products and their newly introduced developments.
The stage is perfectly lit, the PA system doesn’t have any back coupling and the set decorations keep the audience spellbound. What would a show be without first rate event technicians, scene painters or make-up artists? Probably very quiet and colorless.
Those of you, who like us, attended Prolight + Sound this year, are guaranteed to have fond memories of Halls 9 and 11. On those walls, floors and ceilings everything light and laser effects had to offer was shown off. At Martin Professional, one of the largest exhibiters, the word "highlights" was taken quite literally. The market leader for spotlight systems introduced twelve new products at Prolight + Sound, including the MAC Viper-Series with innovative lamps and depth of focus.
