What a show PALM Expo India 2016 was! The leading stage light and sound, AV install and music production expo ran from May 26 -28 at Bombay Exhibition Centre, Mumbai, with plenty of exciting technology for the thousands of visitors to see, hear and play with.
We exhibited with our longstanding regional partner Ansata Computer Systems, showing a wide range of our professional audio solutions that were enthusiastically received throughout the show.
Visitors were particularly impressed with the Avid VENUE | S6L 24D live mixing system, with a steady stream of people across all three days enjoying demos every hour. The reception of the console was fantastic, and Ansata already has received several orders following the show.
We also had a great reaction to the Avid Pro Tools | S3 control surface with the Avid Pro Tools | DOCK that enables users to integrate the free iPad app, Avid Pro Tools | Control. Pro Tools DOCK can be paired with the Pro Tools | S3 to provide enhanced functionality.
Many of the musicians that visited the stand loved the combination of the Pro Tools | S3 and the Dock, including the acclaimed percussionist Sivamani, who commented, “Pro Tools | Dock shortens the distance between my mind and my hand. Awesome!” Vijay Dayal, sound engineer at YRF Studios in Mumbai, thought that the new Pro Tools | Dock “is absolutely brilliant and super innovative. A huge time saver!” Meanwhile, Pramod Chandorkar, sound engineer and founder of SIA (Soundideaz Academy), said, “It will help me focus on the creative process — absolutely brilliant!”
We also gave live demonstrations of Avid Pro Tools | HD Native Thunderbolt OMNI system, which is widely regarded as the most powerful native DAW in the market, and Avid Cloud Collaboration for Pro Tools, which enables audio professionals to compose, record, edit and mix from anywhere in the world. This really caused some excitement, with standing-room-only demonstrations throughout the show.
All in all, PALM Expo India 2016 was a huge success and a very enjoyable show. We’re already looking forward to next year!
