SHOW REVIEW: PLASA FOCUS: LEEDS

lumen output in the white range and for lighter tints, as well as better complementing the red and blue ends of the colour spectrum. Avolites had a number of


products receiving their first UK airing: the Titan Mobile Fader Wing can be used to extend any Avolites Titan console; and Avolites Media showed its new S2, S4 and S6 media servers, with two, four and six Display Port/DVI outputs respectively. On the KV2 stand, Tom


Weldon told me that the company is doing particularly well in the theatre and worship markets across the world this year. On display was the company’s SL series club speaker system, which is only 30cm deep and can be installed on a wall to save space. Despite the slim cabinets, a pair of SL412 and SL2.15 units can provide enough sound for a 1,500-person venue. Also on show was the ESD15 – a compact 3-way passive speaker with 15in, 6in and 1in drivers. This, he said, is particularly popular in venues such as theatres that require full-range sound but don’t have the space for separate subwoofers. Chauvet Professional


exhibited the Rogue series of moving head spot fixtures and moving beam luminaires. The fixtures are said to be quiet and fast, rugged, lightweight and durable – as well as offering a large number of features for their price. Also on display were the latest in the Nexus series of LED video panels.

ETC demoed Series 2 of its Source Four LED luminaire


There were a number


of products from Philips Entertainment’s various brands making UK debuts. One was the Showline NITRO 510C LED strobe – which is just as compact as its predecessor and adds full RGBW capabilities. Another was the Selecon LED RAMA Fresnel, which provides an adjustable cone of light, a soft edge, and is easily blended with adjacent beams for even illumination. Orbital Sound showed two of the latest speakers from Flare Audio: the SM15 Stage Monitor and X5 Vertical Point Source Array system. Like the rest of Flare’s range, these loudspeaker designs are based on a patented concept based on waveform integrity. Finally, I went to the Sennheiser stand hoping to take a look at the ADN-W – the recently launched wireless extension to the wired ADN conferencing system. However, it turned out that the unit that was due to be exhibited in Leeds had been pressed into service for a project elsewhere. So if you read any reviews of the show that mention seeing the ADN-W at PLASA Focus, you should be somewhat sceptical… The next PLASA Focus – the first in mainland Europe – takes place in Brussels on 1-2 July, and PLASA has announced that it intends to hold another in Scotland later this year. The next PLASA Focus: Leeds will be on 12-13 May 2015. 
