GSL hosts VTX training
UAE: Dubai-based distributor, GSL Professional, recently hosted a two-day JBL VTX training session. The training was led by Ed Jackson, who is Harman Professional’s senior application engineer, tour sound for EMEA and Abboud Aljuneidi, the MI and touring sales executive for GSL.
The first day focused on understanding line array theory and building a virtual system using HiQnet performance manager. The second then detailed how to set up the system that had been designed. Attendees also got to learn elements of rigging a VTX V20 system in a live setting.
Attending the training were teams from Showtech and Aldaw Music, which have both made recent purchases of the VTX V20 system and reportedly wanted to expand their knowledge of their systems. Also in attendance was AV Concept and some local freelancers.
‘The training was very informative and it helped us to learn a lot more about the VTX V20,’ said Sunny Jacob, the managing director of Aldaw. ‘Now we are extremely confident to have a very practical approach to the system and know that it’s going to deliver every time we use it.’
‘The recent purchases that Showtech and Aldaw have made have really set a standard in the Middle East,’ added Mr Aljuneidi. ‘The VTX V20 is a very strong addition to anyone’s product range and I’m looking forward to seeing the response from their clients and the increasing number of artists that request it. Due to the rugged reliability of the entire VTX series, it makes it extremely suitable to the climate we have here in the Middle East, in addition the efficient transport, fast setup and precise configuration gives any other brand high competition in the tour sound market.’
