Mr Hussain was introduced to the dLive system at a recent demo event staged by Sun Infonet and hosted by the distributor’s product manager, Rohit Reddy. The rental company owner was reportedly impressed by the system’s built-in features, such as the user friendly interface and capacitive touch screen, big headroom and tonal quality. It has since been deployed for a number of other events, including the premiere of Telugu-language movie, Dhruva.
