LDI Show Awards Ceremony in Las Vegas

Leading rental sound, lighting and staging production company StagePro (Ottawa, Kansas) provided the live sound reinforcement system for the LDI Awards Ceremony, held at the recent LDI trade show in Las Vegas. The Awards recognized excellence in a variety of categories related to the live design, events and staging industry, including lighting, audio and video. The audio system featured a comprehensive range of products from Harman Professional, highlighted by JBL’s subcompact VERTEC® line arrays.

For the event, StagePro supplied the audio reinforcement system as part of its Apex Mobile Stage. The main PA system included left/right hangs of four VERTEC VT4886 subcompact line array loudspeakers and two VT4883 subcompact arrayable subwoofers per side, supplemented by an additional four VT4886 loudspeakers placed along the center edge of the stage for front fill.

“The response to the Awards Ceremony was very positive and the audio system performed wonderfully,” said Jay Waller, Owner of StagePro. “The subcompact VERTEC line arrays were a terrific solution for this event, which provided an opportunity to expose this relatively new product line to a variety of potential clients.”

A new Crown VRACK loaded with I-Tech HD amplifiers powered the system, which also included a Soundcraft Vi4 digital mixing console along with AKG wireless microphones. “The Vi4 console performed flawlessly,” Waller added. “We received a lot of comments that the effects package incorporating other Harman technologies like Lexicon is very impressive, and it truly is. Of all the digital consoles on the market, it has one of the nicest sounding effects packages available.”

"The LDI Awards are a great way for the show to recognize excellence in the industry, from the Wally Award in memory of Wally Russell honoring a veteran in the lighting industry, to the Redden Awards in memory of Craig Redden and presented by Epic Production Technologies to honor excellence in lighting in theater, concerts, and corporate events,” said Ellen Lampert-Greaux, Consulting Editor and Conference Director, Live Design/LDI. “The awards also include the ESTA Members Choice Product Awards and LDI's Best Debuting Product Awards, which honor technical innovation. The LDI booth awards accented the excitement on the show floor. The final award, sponsored by Showman Fabricators, was for the best Green Product Award in recognition of the greening of our industry. We appreciate the support of StagePro and Harman/JBL in making the awards ceremony a successful event."
