ETC’s ColorSource Lights up the Theatre on the Square
This Wednesday, 6 September, ApexPro would like to invite you to the Theatre on the Square at Nelson Mandela Square in Sandton to view a performance of Freud’s Last Session. Lit by award winning lighting designer Denis Hutchinson, the show utilises the latest ColorSource LED technology from ETC as well as the ColorSource 20 Console.
If you would like to come and see LED lighting technology used in a theatrical context, where subtlety of colour and dimming are paramount, then this is definitely the production for you. There will also be a Q and A session after the show hosted by Mathew Lewis, ApexPro’s ETC product specialist, who will be joined by Denis so that they can answer any questions that you may have about the lighting and how to utilise it.
Theatre on the Square has generously offered half price tickets for the night, so if you would like to watch some excellent theatre and find out more about the latest in lighting technology, then book your seats by contacting computicket on 0861 915 8000 or by going to www.computicket.co.za.
If you would like more information about the Q and A session you can email Mathew Lewis at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Audio-Technica ATUC-50 Conference System Launch & Training
On the 21st of February Audio-Technica South Africa, distributed by ApexPro, officially launched the ATUC-50, an innovative new offering from Audio-Technica in the conferencing space. Audio-Technica’s Conference Business Development Manager EMEA, Sandra Kellerman, came all the way from Denmark to officially launch the exciting new ATUC-50 Digital Discussion System and offer in-depth training on its use and features. The event was held at the picturesque Blandford Manor conferencing venue in northern Johannesburg.
This new entry-level system has raised the bar for sound quality and speech intelligibility with its 24-bit/48kHz uncompressed digital audio and is extremely easy to use along with plug and play functionality. With a 5 year warranty the ATUC-50 offers reliable, clear and intelligible communication to significantly increase meeting efficiency and effectiveness.
Aadil Matwadia, National Sales Manager for ApexPro had this to say; “I really found the training to be very informative. It was very useful to see what we are up against in the market place with this system. The ATUC-50’s ease of set up and sound quality were the highlights for me”.
After two very successful training sessions in Johannesburg, Sandra went on to Cape Town where customers were again very enthusiastic about the system. We predict that the ATUC-50 will find many fans in South Africa as an easy to use, highly adaptable and great sounding system in the entry-level tier of conferencing.
