South Africa - DWR Distribution presented an exclusive demo of L-Acoustics’ L-ISA sound technology to over 100 representatives from rental companies and TV studios in Johannesburg.
The system, which was used in South Africa for the first time during the live edition of The Voice South Africa 2019, was demo’d at the Mosaïek Teatro in Fairlands, where the TV show took place.
The demo was presented by Tim McCall, regional sales manager and Tony Szabo, head of touring applications at L-Acoustics, along with Chris Pugh, technical support at DWR Distribution and Adriaan van der Walt, audio engineer at Multi-Media who specified L-ISA technology for The Voice.
“I think it’s awesome that L-Acoustics have invested so much into South Africa,” comments Duncan Riley of DWR. “We are one of their smaller markets, yet they treat us no differently to the larger players. Their passion is contagious, and it really does feel like a family. We received an overwhelming response at the demo from the entertainment industry and I would like to thank everyone for being there.”
“Over six million spectators have enjoyed over two thousand performances in L-ISA so far, and we have sent out people to gather information from the audience to see if they enjoyed the production and noticed a difference,” said Tony Szabo. “The feedback has been overwhelming, from people commenting that they felt closer to the performance, to artists saying that they receive a greater response from the audience.”
Chris de Lancey, director at Multi-Media, sums up the benefits of L-ISA: “Having done seven seasons of The Voice locally, Adriaan van Der Walt and I agree that, audience participation in the live show was noticeably more enthusiastic than previous seasons. We cannot wait to deploy this ground-breaking technology to the local industry at large.”
“To be honest, I knew the demo would be well received and that people would like it,’ says Chris Pugh of DWR. “But it’s still a nice feeling watching people experience L-ISA for the first time. I was very proud to be part of this journey.”
