I'm gonna disagree completely with this. The haze was the most I've ever seen at the show in 13 years. Also the volume levels for the big booths (Clay Paky in particular) was out of control. It was painfully loud.It's really not bad in the show floor the year, it's been much much worse in years past.
Yes! The sound was brutal this year, every big booth was insane. I think they need to set a schedule for the big booths to adhere to for the shows and not all have them at the hour or half-hour mark. Setup only X amount of show times on 5 minute intervals and try to stagger them so there aren't two shows starting next to each other at the same time. It was a cacophony at times. Or, run the show with some sort of Assisted Hearing system and make it silent. You have to register with the marketing desk to borrow a headset. Then you can run it as often as you want. I'm just spitballing here on solutions, but it would be nice to be able to actually conduct more business more comfortably at a Tradeshow.
Thanks Mark, those pictures are ridiculous! Xtylos is like a laser in a Sci-fi film!There was a shoot out, off of the roof of the Palm hotel (Apex Social Club) on Saturday night of the show, of the new Claypaky Xytlos vs. a Sharpy, and also vs. a Mythos2 onto the wall of a building about 1 mile away. While I can't seem to find anyone who had images of that shoot out, here are images of the Xytlos vs. those other ClayPaky fixtures, into open air (no haze). These photos were taken from the roof of the ClayPaky Factory in Bergamo Italy, last Spring. Left to right, the beams are from a Sharpy, Mythos2, and then Xytlos on the right.
