“The overall theme of our AV Summit was ‘let us show you how to fill your room and not your truck’ by showcasing small- to mid-scale NEXO and Yamaha audio solutions that deliver high output, quality performance, versatility, and value,” said Albert Cardenas, acoustic systems manager.

The well-attended events took place at the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts in Cerritos, CA and the headquarters of YCAS. The sessions, presented by the YCAS team, were broken into groups using various rooms at the Cerritos Center venue. In the main performing arts center, sessions were based around NEXO GEO D and GEO S12 line arrays, featuring the launch of the PS R2 series loudspeakers, which included hands-on rigging and hardware displays. Demonstrations highlighted system networking utilizing NEXO’s NXAmps and Yamaha TXn amps.

Several breakout sessions included product and system presentations and demonstrations geared toward AV rental and production companies that included: Simple Audio Solutions featuring MG and EMX consoles, STAGEPAS, MSP-Studio monitors, HS, and MSR powered loudspeakers. Club and Consoles featured the IM8 analog console and M7CL, LS-9 and 01V96 digital audio consoles, Alpha E, and Club Series loudspeakers, and SB-168-ES digital stage boxes. IS with YS featured a YS Yamaha Sound System Simulator software overview. Installation Series loudspeakers and Yamaha DME were presented in a simple networked audio system.
