London, UK — 20th September, 2016 — Sponsored by Velta, the 2016 PLASA Awards for Innovation took place in the Apex Room at the end of an extremely busy Monday at this year’s PLASA Show. Hosted by PLASA’s new managing director Peter Heath and presented by PLASA Chairman Ed Pagett, the awards aim to recognise and reward outstanding new product ideas.
The Awards garner a huge amount of respect because they are independently and impartially judged by an invited team of industry experts.
To win an Award for Innovation, a nominated product had to satisfy the chairman of judges that it met the criteria for Innovation by clearly showing that it demonstrates a new style of thinking; improves technical practice; introduces new technology, new materials or new techniques; includes patents or unique intellectual property; offers a new commercial advantage, or improves safety.
One product impressed the judges enough to merit a Gold Award, which recognise products that stand out above the others in the field of nominations.
The Gold Award went to KLANG for its KLANG:fabrik device, which was shown by their UK sales partner, HD Pro Audio.
The Judges decided that this was the first time that binaural monitoring has been successfully implemented in a practical and cost-effective solution. It was felt that it will be a popular addition to many shows.
