Shows are way bigger than they used to be and as a result, engineers need a lot more outputs, signals, and channels. Here's a video overview of the SD7 Quantum: {youtube}v=KS1963erKKE{/youtube}

GLP Celebrates 25 Years and New Product Successes at Prolight+Sound

Stage Directions

GLP hosted record numbers at their show booth on the opening evening of Frankfurt’s Prolight+Sound—at a party to help celebrate the company’s 25th anniversary. The stand — at 380 sqm, GLP’s biggest ever — was literally packed as GLP’s U.S. president, Mark Ravenhill introduced the company’s founder, Udo Künzler. He, in turn, welcomed the audience and invited them to share in the ‘Highlander’ theme, as a bekilted piper sounded the release of GLP’s latest product of the same name, and everyone was invited to partake of 'a wee dram' of whisky (and of course GLP’s signature beer).
