Lab.gruppen and Lake enjoy success at Prolight+Sound 2011
Pro Audio technology partners Lab.gruppen and Lake, alongside sister company Tannoy, enjoyed resounding success at Frankfurt’s Prolight+Sound (PL+S) 2011, which took place on 6-9th April.
Lab.gruppen’s touring and performance audio focus was on the PLM™ Series of Powered Loudspeaker Management™ systems, including the flagshipPLM20000Q – now featuring enhanced functionality added since its launch at PL+S 2010 – and the stalwart FP+ Series of tour-honed amplifiers.
There was a vast amount of interest in the demonstration of Lake Controller software operated wirelessly via an Apple® iPad® tablet and Lake fans and new customers were happy to be allowed a sneak peek at the forthcoming Mesa Mode for the Lake LM 26 Digital Audio Loudspeaker Processor, which will allow the unit to be configured as a 4-in/4-out system processor. Mesa Mode is due summer 2011 as part of a software update.
On the install side, Lab.gruppen’s firmly established C Series install-dedicated amplifier platform was demonstrated with full Crestron® system control. With remote control and monitoring via the Crestron system, C Series now offers even greater integration possibilities in high-end installed audio applications.
Visitors were also able to get a taste of the recently launched VX Series andVXPSeries from Tannoy, the latter featuring Lab.gruppen’s brand new IDEEA™ (Intelli-Drive Energy Efficient Amplifier) power module, as well as Tannoy’s award-winning QFlex range – now enhanced with the brand new Sentinel SM-1 system monitor, for greatly improvement PA/VA compliance.
Tim Chapman, Head of Marketing at Lab.gruppen and Lake, said: “This year’s show in Frankfurt was a great success for both brands and our partners. Thanks to a great booth layout, great products and highly motivated staff, and some really pro-active and positive customers, we’ve had one of the most successful Prolight+Sound shows in years. We’re looking forward to doing it all again next year.”
