Learn the fundamentals of LIVE EVENT NETWORKING in Only 4 Hours!

By Sithembiso Xaba

With the recent announcement of Electrosonic SA becoming the sole distributor of Green-GO Digital Communications in Southern Africa, the innovative range of IP-based communication devices have been received with much excitement in the entertainment industry.

Electrosonic’s Live Events team will host the NETWORKING for the LIVE EVENTS Industry Roadshow, with Green-GO and Luminex Network Intelligence taking centre stage as the main product focus for the tradeshow.

Jesse Dullabh, the Live Events Technical Manager, shares what participants can expect when they take part in this unique approach to product networking. “The NETWORKING for the LIVE EVENTS Industry Roadshow is a first-of-its-kind as it brings theory, practical engagement and brand awareness to its audience. We’ll introduce our participants to basic IP terminologies and definitions that are tailored for the Live Entertainment industry. We’ll focus on lighting, sound, AV, communication, tracking and special effects, to name a few.”

He adds, “Luminex has become the standard in Ethernet Distribution and is globally accepted in the international Live Entertainment industry. Green-GO is the latest addition to Electrosonic’s family of solutions as it embraces the Ethernet Protocol as a natural fit to Luminex. VLAN (Virtual Local Area Network) or Groups allow for Green-GO’s system to fit naturally into their own managed port configuration. The fact is, Green-GO’s product range incorporates Power over Ethernet (POE), another feature that allows for a natural merge of the 2 product ranges.”

Dullabh has worked at Electrosonic for 7 years and is entrusted with training participants within the Live Events industry. “We’ve spent a lot of time engaging with the industry and realised that a vital part of empowering individuals is through education. This seminar will introduce participants to IP terminology and definitions that are unique to the industry, allowing them to grasp these ideas without having to filter tons of information that might be irrelevant to them,” says Dullabh.

The NETWORKING Roadshow is the second roadshow that the Live Events team is hosting in 2019 and it comes with much excitement and opportunity. “The tour will start off in Durban on 19 June, and will be led by Bertus Roux (Technical Support). We then plan to continue on to Cape Town and Port Elizabeth, and end if off in Johannesburg at the end of June/early July. The rest of Electrosonic’s Live Event products team, including Bruce Schwartz, Renier Smit and Motlotlo Makhobotloane will be part of the roadshow to share and assist with any questions from our valuable clients.”

Dullabh is passionate about sharing the knowledge he’s acquired over the years and shares great enthusiasm for the growth of the industry. “Our expectations relating to this would definitely be educating the industry as well as introducing new and exciting ways of working with our new Green-GO product ranges.”

The focus products that will be showcased are; “Luminex Switches, the Luminex Monitor, Green-GO Digital’s Communication systems products, i.e. Beltpacks (including wireless), the Multi-Channel Rack Station (MCX), the Multi-Channel Desk Station (MCXD), and Green-GO Connection Software.” Dullabh concludes.
