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.
