31 new exhibitors amongst swathe of new product launches

Established networking event offers chance to see host of new products

PLASA Focus: Leeds 2010 - which takes place on Tuesday 27 & Wednesday 28 April at the Royal Armouries - is fast building its profile as a show for new products as well as networking, with a host of products launching in Frankfurt scheduled to make their first UK appearance in Leeds just a few weeks later. Among these are the latest developments from some of the 31 new exhibitors who have signed up to PLASA Focus since the first show last year - leading to a completely sold out event.

From the audio world, exhibitors include Allen & Heath, showcasing new products including the iDR-16 3U MixRack and iLive-R72, iLive software v1.6, Xone:PB, Xone:XD40 headphones and ZED-10 and ZED-10FX mini mixers; Ateis International with its new ECS-Teleconference unit echo cancellation system; Cloud Electronics' new MA60MEDIA combined mixer/amplifier/digital music player; Duran Audio's AXYS Beam Shaping Subwoofer range; NEXO's second product in its patented Ray Sub Series; Trantec's 19", 8-way Channel 38 ready, S6 wireless system and S-D7000, an innovative fully digital wireless microphone system; and Yamaha's new M7CL-48ES digital console, MY8-SDI-ED interface card and versatile TLF loudspeaker technology.

Lighting and video product launches come from, amongst others the AC-ET stand, which will feature pioneering new LED lighting, video and control systems from Chroma-Q, InnovaLED and Jands; Artistic Licence will show its latest lighting control technologies including DALI & DMX, RDM & Art-Net, Colour-Tramp and interfacing solutions; Chauvet will highlight its new products for production - COLORado 1 Tour, COLORado 2 Tour, COLORado Batten 72 Tour with 72 1W RGBWA LEDs and Q-Spot 260-LED high power moving yoke; and SGM will show its new family of 'Idea' moving heads with different beam apertures - giving them the capabilities of high powered profile and wash lighting with superior colour mixing.

These are just a few of the product launches and highlights to be seen at PLASA Focus - the premier business and networking event for the entertainment and installation technology industries in the north of England.

The two-day Education & Learning Programme, which runs alongside PLASA Focus, proved a major success last year, and will cover an equally diverse range of topics in a series of seminars presented by some of the industry's leading bodies. Full details of seminars, an exhibitor list and a floor plan are at Like the show, admission to all seminars is free; however, visitors must register to reserve a place as space is limited.
