Installation is pleased to announce the winners of its Best of Show Awards at Prolight + Sound 2016.
The awards recognise new and outstanding products, and were open to any company showing a product that had been launched since PL+S 2015. The awards were judged by the Installation team according to a number of criteria, including ease of use/maintenance, performance against category standard, richness/relevance of the feature set, and versatility.
The winning products are:
AV Stumpfl Wings Engine Raw
The manufacturer showed an 8K by 4K version of its ultra-high performance media serverWings Engine Raw at the Frankfurt show – delivering an unrivalled four streams of full 4K uncompressed content at 60Hz plus a rich array of media overlays, text generation and show control.
Crestron Fusion Cloud Software
The latest, cloud-based version of Crestron’s enterprise management platform proactively monitors and manages an organisation’s global network of AV devices from a single location – issuing alerts to the technical support team and so enabling them to perform preventive maintenance.
d&b audiotechnik Vi7P/Vi10P
The Vi7P and Vi10P are installation versions of the new mobile V7P and V10P loudspeakers - point-source speakers that provide an alternative to smaller line arrays thanks to their high SPL levels and sensitive mid-frequency range performance.
Extron DTP CrossPoint 4K Series
Described by the manufacturer as ‘go-to products for 4K presentation systems’, the Extron DTP CrossPoint 4K Series provides a complete system in one enclosure, replacing as many as 11 separate components. Features include switching, scaling, signal extension, audio amplification, DSP and AEC.
Many thanks to all the companies that took part. All the entrants for the awards will be featured in a special digital publication, which will be available soon.
