PL+S 2012: Avid to exhibit VENUE console family

Exhibiting from Hall 8, Stand G40 at this year’s Prolight + Sound show in Messe, Frankfurt, Avid will be showcasing its family of VENUE live sound consoles.

Presenting alongside Avid’s German live sound distributor S.E.A, the company will reinforce how optimum sound can be achieved using its VENUE systems.

The VENUE SC48 Remote System – a compact console with remote I/O – will be on show, along with the VENUE D-Show, a live sound system that is designed to offer optimised flexibility. Avid’s customisable and compact VENUE Profile System will also be on display.

Two of the industry’s leading FOH engineers, Chris Madden and Klaus Scharff, will be on hand to demo their recent projects on the consoles throughout the show. Madden, who has worked with such artists as Pink, The Waterboys, Sade and Joe Cocker, will be giving demonstrations of Pink’s live show production using a VENUE D-Show system. Scharff, meanwhile, will be giving VENUE SC48 Remote System demonstrations of recent projects, having worked with the likes of German hip-hop band Die Fantastischen Vier, as well as other top German acts including Xavier Naidoo, Thomas D and Joy Denalane.

Derk Hagedorn, segment marketing manager for live sound at Avid, said: “We are delighted to have users of the stature of Chris and Klaus demonstrating our solutions at Prolight + Sound 2012. There really is no better way to showcase how easy and intuitive our systems are to use than through presenting our customers’ real-life projects.”

Avid will also attend Musikmesse (Hall 5.1 Stand A68). To book a media appointment or demonstration, please contact Louise Wells or Michael Lamb at Red Lorry Yellow Lorry on 020 7403 8878 or at
