Joost van Eenbergen

Joost van Eenbergen

Joost Van EenbergenFor the past 20 years, Joost van Eenbergen has been applying his brilliant technical mind to the challenges facing entertainment production professionals. His first invention was the FocusHand system for the remote control of lights while focusing. 

Then, Joost came up with the ShowStore show recorder, the first unit to be record and playback DMX shows, in real-time.With the advent of Art-Net in 2000, Joost introduced ELC’s first dmXLAN Ethernet system, along with the software to programme it. 

Perhaps Joost’s greatest success was to produce the revolutionary Green-GO comms system. This year, Joost’s latest innovation, the dmXLAN nodeGBx 8 will be launched at the PLASA Show, and promises to bring new efficiencies, and new flexibility, to entertainment Ethernet systems.

Dr. Christian Heil

Christian HeilDr. Christian Heil founded L-Acoustics in 1984, and the introduction of the V-DOSC line array system in the mid-1990s led to a fundamental shift in the live sound market, and line array systems proliferated for the next decade and a half.

Still, Heil and L-Acoustics continue to refine the line array concept: the KIVA ultra-compact system came to market in 2008; the K1 system - seen as the long-awaited successor to the ground-breaking V-DOSC - debuted in 2009; the KARA modular line source system followed in 2010; and the K2 system in 2014.

His latest technology venture, L-ISA, is a comprehensive multichannel audio architecture, designed to bring immersive audio to live performances in venues with capacities of 100 to 10,000 or more.

  • We’ve been exhibiting at PLASA for around 10 years and show both competing and complementary technologies, allowing our customers to see the differences between them. No one feels they’re getting the hard sell, it works very well.

  • This year’s PLASA show was one of the busiest ever, and in my opinion, it was also one of the best we’ve exhibited at. All in all, it was a very positive show for us and our suppliers.
