The Professional Lighting and Sound Association’s (PLASA) annual awards were announced on Monday, 19th September during the trade show at London’s Olympia. The awards seek to recognise product ideas that improve technical practice, offer commercial advantage and demonstrate new ways of thinking. Hans Metger from the d&b GB EAS team presented the far field noise immission modelling software to the judges: “Noise sensitivity in communities around open air events is a big issue,” he commented. “Receiving this award shows just how important solving this issue is for the industry.”
Meanwhile the 32nd Annual NAMM TEC Awards has named the installation specific 30D amplifier in the shortlist for the Amplification Hardware Studio and Sound Reinforcement Award. The successful nominees will be announced during the NAMM show in California in January.
