The 2009 PLASA Awards for Innovation have been announced at London's Earl's Court, together with this year's Gottelier Award.
Eight innovation awards were given out, including one to Cast Group for its LED display technology, Coda Audio for the SC8 sensor-controlled subwoofer and ETC for its Selador LED fixture, which features a colour output approaching the spectral curve of traditional incandescent source.
Additionally, the Gottelier Award was presented to Alex Cooper of Clark Teknik in recognition of his work in designing the Midas range of mixing consoles.
The awards were presented by Adam Afriyie MP, shadow minister for innovation, universities and skills.
"Once again the awards reflect the outstanding creativity and dedication that sits at the foundation of our dynamic industry," commented PLASA chairman Matthew Griffiths.
The Gottelier award was created in honour of designer and developer Tony Gottelier and recognises product developers who contribute to the equipment and tools used in events.
