AES Brazil Expo 11
D.A.S. Audio participated with Decomac, exclusive distributor for Brazil
For years the AES Brazil Expo has been the preeminent Latin American trade show in audio, video, lighting and special facilities, and D.A.S. Audio was proud to participate in the Expo's 15th edition this past May.
A record 6,500 people attended the convention over the course of the three-day event held at the Do Anhembi Convention Centre in Sao Paulo. Visitors were able to check out first-hand the latest trends on the market presented by the more than 60 exhibitors. With the help of Decomac, D.A.S. Audio's exclusive distributor for Brazil, the Spanish company showed off the latest and greatest from its product range at this technology convention.
The many activities scheduled during the trade show included training seminars as well as open-air demonstrations of line array systems. Eight different manufacturers took part in this exposition, displaying line systems of different sizes and configurations.
D.A.S Audio participated in this sound showcase, demonstrating its latest self-powered Aero 12A system. Decomac sound technicians mounted a linear formation made up of 16 Aero 12A units, accompanied by 10 high-performance D.A.S. LX-218A subwoofer systems.
Each company present in the demo zone held a 20 minute demonstration during the expo´s opening hours. In the evening, technicians from the organization set all the systems to the same levels and attendees were able to listen to them simultaneously as they played the same music at the same time. This way they could hear and compare the true qualities of each line array system in the demo zone for themselves.
With regard to the educational aspects of AES Brazil Expo 2011, D.A.S. took part in one of the training sessions given by event organizers. Joel Damiano, Systems Engineer for D.A.S., flew to Sao Paulo from the company´s headquarters in Spain to participate, speaking about the different technical considerations to keep in mind during acoustic simulation and prediction of line array systems, as well as the use of computer measurement tools applicable to the professional sound industry.
