JBL Professional has won PSNEurope's first Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2015 Best of Show award for its new Control HST loudspeaker. The award was presented to JBL's senior marketing manager for commercial sound, Rick Kamlet, at ISE.
“We’re very pleased to have gotten the Best of Show award from PSNEurope for our Control HST speaker," Kamlet (pictured) told PSNEurope. “It’s a new technology that was developed about 18 months ago and is just coming out of the pipeline here at ISE for its first public showing anywhere.
"We think that it’s going to be a real benefit to the industry – first of all, in the elimination of the primary wall reflection, and, second, with the very wide wall-to-wall coverage.”
The indoor/outdoor Control HST features JBL's patent-pending Hemispherical Soundfield Technology (HST), which enables it to achieve an extremely wide horizontal coverage of almost 180°.
A special digital supplement which rounds up other NewBay Media brands' (Installation, Tech&LearningUK, AV Tech, Residential Systems and Digital Signage) Best of Show winners will be available soon.
