ApexPro to advance pro-AV market in Southern Africa at ISE 2023

ApexPro’s director of sales, Brendan Venter, will be attending ISE 2023 to cement existing relationships and create new opportunities to distribute world-class pro-AV products across Southern Africa.

Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) is the world’s largest exhibition for AV and systems integration professionals. Held annually, ISE attracts over 1,300 exhibitors and over 80,000 attendees from around the world.

ISE 2023 will open its doors on January 31 in Barcelona, Spain. The event will feature a wide range of technical presentations, workshops, demonstrations, and a large exhibition floor with the latest AV and systems integration products and technologies from the world’s leading technology innovators and solutions providers.

“The Southern African market is hungry for professional audio, visual, and integration solutions suitable for our unique environment. The event provides the perfect opportunity for us to find the manufacturers, solutions, and products that will fulfill the market’s diverse needs across verticals,” says ApexPro director Justin Acres.

ApexPro director Mark Malherbe concurs, stating, “With Brendan’s many years of industry experience and strong working relationships with our current suppliers, we are confident that he will use the opportunity presented at ISE 2023 to cement existing relationships and bring onboard new opportunities at this year’s event.”

Prosound, which will be celebrating 50 years in business this year, is the holding company of ApexPro. ApexPro was established in the early 2000s to serve as an independent distribution company for Southern Africa, allowing Prosound to focus on consulting and installation services to clients in the region.

“The Pro-AV market is emerging from a tumultuous time following the global Covid-19 pandemic. It’s a great opportunity to attend ISE at the start of 2023, as we see a strong surge in growth and investment from our client base in the post-pandemic economy. Business models have changed over the past two years, necessitated by the lockdowns and spurred on by the rapid expansion of connectivity infrastructure across the sub-Saharan region.  People in the region are ready to adopt next-level technology, and we are excited to find and bring the products and solutions needed to drive these advancements forward,” says Brendan.

Meyer Sound Poised to Another Major Revelation at ISE

New Product Introductions and Interactive Tech Bars Highlight ISE Presence

Meyer Sound Poised for Another Major Revelation at ISE 2023

At this year’s Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) show in Barcelona, Meyer Sound will introduce a new product expected to have a significant impact on portable touring and installed sound industries. Only a year ago, the company debuted the phenomenally successful PANTHER™ large-format linear line array loudspeaker, setting a new standard for the industry and a new direction for Meyer Sound technologies.

“At ISE, we will introduce a powerful new Milan-equipped loudspeaker that extends and complements the clear benefits that already have earned global acceptance in PANTHER.”

John McMahon, Meyer Sound Senior Vice President

Also featured at the Meyer Sound stand (Hall 5, 5F100) will be a single PANTHER cabinet, unattached and available for team lifting to demonstrate its light weight of 150 lb (68 kg) and compact size. The class-leading acoustical performance of PANTHER is already proven in the real world and backed up with the latest technology, including a Milan AVB endpoint as standard.

The always-popular Tech Bar has been doubled for ISE 2023. One tech bar will feature the Spacemap® Go spatial sound design and mixing tool using a range of compact IntelligentDC™ loudspeakers. The other Tech Bar will focus on the networked power and flexibility of new ULTRA-X20™ loudspeakers and USW-112P™ subwoofers, also with integrated Milan endpoints.

Both Tech Bars will demonstrate Meyer Sound’s new Nebra™ software platform, which provides fast and intuitive connection of Milan-based audio networks along with comprehensive system monitoring over the same network or, for backward compatibility with existing systems, via the RMServer™.

Meyer Sound also will introduce another new Nebra-compatible product that is optimized for installation applications.

“Meyer Sound experienced a record year in 2022 and we will build on that momentum in 2023 starting at ISE,” says McMahon. “Our team looks forward to meeting in person in Barcelona with customers from around the world.”

ISE 2023 will take place in Barcelona, Spain at Fira Barcelona from January 31 to February 3, 2023.

ApexPro, the sole distributor of Meyer Sound solutions and products in Southern Africa, will be represented by Brendan Venter at ISE 2023.
