Martin Audio took full advantage of this year’s significant changes to Prolight+Sound
2016 in Frankfurt, announcing the new CDD-LIVE! series from its new stand location
and showcasing the products in a live demonstration. It was also a perfect
opportunity for the industry to meet Dom Harter, Martin Audio’s new Managing

The combination proved highly successful as the media gathered enthusiastically at
Martin Audio’s new stand to see the unveiling of the new series. This comprises
Martin Audio’s popular Coaxial Differential Dispersion horns, now teamed with
integrated amplifier, Dante connectivity and tour grade materials.

The complete range was then showcased to hundreds of guests across 24
demonstrations in a dedicated theatre, away from the stand.

Director of Marketing, James King, said, “It’s the first time that we have taken a
stand in our own right at Prolight+Sound and the new Hall 3.1 location worked out
well with its high ceilings, natural light and heavy traffic flow.

“The reaction to CDD-LIVE! was very favourable — the result of a strong feature set
and technical advantages that provide significant benefits for both rental companies
and system integrators. We took a lot of orders and commitments as a result, so
we know we will be off to a strong start with this series.

“We also benefitted from the “Dom Factor’ as everyone from customers, journalists,
and industry peers were keen to meet with our new Managing Director. The
exhibition also provided the perfect opportunity for him to outline his agenda.’

King says the company’s only gripe with the new set up was the 7pm finish —
particularly on the last day. “It was totally unnecessary and the logistics were
simply not able to contend with such a late finish, meaning it was way past
midnight when our team finished breaking down.’

But rounding off on a positive note, Dom Harter summed up the event. “It was the
perfect opportunity to spend time with my team, who executed the show extremely
professionally. Equally important was spending quality time with our customers and
getting to know them, finding out what needs to improve and the opportunity to
outline to them a pathway to fulfilling the potential of this great British loudspeaker
