Harman and Martin Professional shared centred stage at this year’s Prolight + Sound following the acquisition of the latter by the former earlier this year.
Aside from featuring one another’s technology on their respective stands, Harman and Martin Professional — now the anchor brand of Harman Professional Division’s Lighting Strategic BU — will collaborate on a series of marketing, training and customer events over the course of the show.
In addition to its range of audio technologies from AKG, BSS Audio, Crown, dbx, JBL, Lexicon, Soundcraft and Studer, Harman’s Professional Division will also feature a large Martin Professional LED video wall and stage lighting display. Martin Professional — located at Stand A93 in Hall 9 — will debut its ground-breaking RUSH Series, a full range of cost-effective, high-performing, entry-level systems and also feature a variety of audio technologies from Harman Professional brands including a PA system including AKG wireless mics, JBL install speakers and a Soundcraft Si Performer digital mixing console for audio and lighting.
