Solotech Implements its New Brand Image

Solotech, a supplier of audiovisual and entertainment technologies for over 40 years, recently unveiled its new brand image. Playing with contrasts, the new identity showcases both the artists and the technicians, the onstage and the backstage, the cool colours and the warm hues. The new slogan “Solotech, Simply Spectacular” captures the company’s understanding of the duality needed to realize creative visions.

More than just an aesthetic transformation, this new brand image reflects Solotech’s positioning as an international leader in the audiovisual and entertainment technology industries, particularly now with the conquest of the American and European markets. Indeed, on November 27, 2018, Solotech acquired SSE Audio Group, the British leader in audio services, concluding the most important transaction in its history.

“This rebranding is a fantastic evolution of our image, an honour to our expertise and passion for more than four decades”, said Martin Tremblay, President and CEO of Groupe Solotech. “We are looking ahead with confidence thanks to our modern and dynamic identity which is aligned with our strategic objectives. Our new imprint not only enables us to better stand out on the global stage but also on digital and mobiles platforms”.

In fact, the redesign of Solotech’s brand image includes its new website showcasing the company’s new identity, which is the result of a long-term endeavour involving multiple collaborators (Ascendis, Apogée Solutions Créatives, etc.), and overseen by Christine Latour, Marketing and Communications Director, as well as her entire team. The implementation process will continue in the following months in Solotech’s offices and on its gear. “I am convinced that our modernized and asserted identity, combined with our talented team, continues to strengthen our leadership and visibility on all continents”, concluded Martin Tremblay.

KLANG Adds Extra Dimension to Jeff Wayne’s The War of the Worlds

KLANG:technologies visited Jeff Wayne’s The War of Worlds to talk with him and monitor engineer Becky Pell about the challenges in managing a full string orchestra and band with 168 tracks.
Jeff Wayne commented: “When I’m conducting, I’ve got a band on one side and a symphonic string orchestra on the other and with the KLANG system, the placement of those elements is very much as I’m seeing them, rather than just having a good general mix. The result is that it’s very much more alive – more 3D. I have a better balance in my head, so the sound quality is at a completely different level now than previously. I’d like to stay with the KLANG system whenever I’m performing with in-ear monitoring.”

MyT Folding Steroid Roof System Dominates in Naples

Litec has just released a new video on A4i.tv dedicated to its MyT Folding Steroid Roof System, which was chosen for an extremely large Tribute Concert in Naples, Italy that celebrated the life and songs of Italian singer Pino Daniele.

The video documents construction of the massive MyT Folding Steroid Roof System, which also featured spot and delay towers (constructed with MyT Folding Steroid’s modular components), and shows them in action during the evening’s performances. The highly publicized and nationally televised concert attracted an impressive crowd of more than 85,000 attendees and was broadcast to a television audience of millions.

The MyT Folding Steroid Roof System is a modular, completely self-contained roof environment. It’s a hybrid combination of MyT Folding Steroid Truss made from EN AW-7003 T6 aluminium (used as a mother grid), 23 metre high towers with 85 by 85 cm bases made from EN AW-6082 T6 aluminium, and key structural elements in high strength S355 steel such as modular ballast bases, sleeve block and safety block grid/tower.

Even within an open-air stadium setting, and a tremendous crowd in attendance, Litec’s MyT Folding Steroid Roof System maintained its dominating presence. It thoroughly impressed both visually and with its high weight loading parameters.
