"Sinus - Systems Integration Award": exceptional projects to be honored at Prolight + Sound
Museums, conference rooms, amusement parks, installations: In the most diverse areas, the creative use of AV media technology enables the specific transmission of emotions and messages. Since 2004, the "Sinus - Systems Integration Award" has been honoring outstanding achievements in this field and putting them in the spotlight. The award is presented annually at Prolight + Sound in Frankfurt am Main (19 to 22 March 2024). Companies and industry professionals are now invited to submit their showcase projects to the competition.
Opus Award 2024: Prolight + Sound launches application phase
With the upswing of last year's season behind it, the 2023 event industry is shining in new splendor. Many theatres and concert venues took advantage of the Corona pandemic to upgrade their technical equipment and are wowing audiences and critics with even more impressive productions. This year's festival summer and numerous sold-out shows are encouraging evidence of the renewed zest for life. Despite the upswing, however, challenges such as a shortage of skilled workers and rising production costs face the industry with new challenges.
Prolight + Sound and VDT e. V. (Berufsverband der Tonschaffenden) intensify cooperation
Prolight + Sound and VDT e. V. will cooperate even more closely in future. To this end, the leading international trade fair for the entertainment technology industry has become a new supporting member of the professional association for sound professionals and will be represented with its own stand at the upcoming VDT Tonmeistertagung in Düsseldorf from 8 to 11 November 2023. In addition, the two partners will continue the jointly established ProAudio College, which had its premiere in April 2023. At Prolight + Sound 2024 (19 to 22 March), the seminar programme for sound professionals, which has been expanded once again, will again be dedicated to various main topics, will be even more international and will both strengthen the up-and-coming generation in the industry and offer specialised advanced training. Independently of this advanced training series, the VDT will be involved in the event in Frankfurt with an extensive trade fair presence.
