Yamaha has increased the size of its stand at the PLASA show this year, and will share it for the first time with Nexo and Line 6. The companies are exhibiting in a prime position at the heart of the Audio zone, opposite the PLASA Show Bar.
The centrepiece of the stand will be the Yamaha RIVAGE PM10 large format console (pictured). With the first units due to arrive at dealers very soon, product specialists Andy Cooper and Wayne Powell will be on hand to give hands-on demonstrations to engineers keen to familiarise themselves with the console, as well as on Yamaha’s CL, QL and TF consoles, which will also be on display.
Other Yamaha products on show will be the company’s CIS range of installation products, including loudspeakers, power amplifiers and signal processors, as well as interfaces including the R series I/O racks, the RMio64-D Dante/MADI conversion unit and the RSio64-D for conversion between Dante and Mini-YGDAI formats.
Nexo will be showing several of its loudspeaker systems, including the STM (Scale Through Modularity) line array. Shown in ground-stacked format, any size of STM system can be configured from a combination of four small, powerful and proportionally sized modules. Also on show will be the compact GEO M6, which can be flown, ground-stacked or pole-mounted on subs to deliver full-range sound in a wide variety of fixed and mobile applications; and the LS18 sub-bass cabinet, which brings new versatility to the company’s GEO S12 line array systems and PS Series cabinets, delivering high SPL at a relatively low cost.
Line 6’s presence will concentrate on its XD-V family of wireless systems, featuring the company’s patented digital wireless technology. With models for instruments, handheld, lavalier and headworn microphones, Line 6 wireless systems offer 24-bit performance and are fully FCC compliant. Some systems include up to 10 emulations of industry standard live sound mics, providing the ultimate in vocal versatility.
“After a year out from PLASA in 2013, we returned in 2014 with a small stand and were very pleased with the number and quality of visitors we spoke to,” says Karl Christmas, sales & marketing manager at Yamaha Commercial Audio (UK & ROI). “It made sense to return this year with a larger presence and to invite Nexo and Line 6 to join us, demonstrating that Yamaha Corporation companies offer high quality, fully-integrated audio solutions for any kind of live or installation project.”
PLASA 2015 takes place from 4 to 6 October at ExCeL in London’s Docklands.
