Lighting Design Sessions

Lighting is an essential element in creating atmosphere for live events, theatrical productions as well as for architectural design, and has the potential to make or break the success of a project.

While technically challenging, light is a necessary medium requiring the mastery of varied and continuously evolving disciplines. Lighting designers are specialists at utilising light as the medium of expression to create mood and effects, shift emphasis within performances and enhance the desirability of spaces. Mediatech 2019 will be offering a number of information sessions and demonstrations featuring the latest in lighting design technology available on the global market.

Presentation Zones

With rapid advancements in technology and the shift in social dynamics affecting content demand, delivery and platform selection, members and specialists within the industry will be discussing emerging trends and media solutions for the African context.

Outdoor Sound Demos

Deep bass, clear treble and a rich middle range are just some of the qualities expected from high-quality audio and line array systems.

Mediatech 2019 will feature a number of outdoor demo sessions, where visitors get to experience the versatility and capabilities of some of the most technologically advanced sound systems, without the restriction of indoor displays.

Black Box

What do you get when you combine the most creative minds in the media and entertainment technology industry with trailblazing technology? Mix in high energy-music, a dancer, powerful lighting, projection stances, and pixel mapping and you have a taste of Mediatech Africa’s Black Box. This fully automated light and visual experience was among the most popular events to be hosted at Mediatech 2017.

Virtual Reality and Drone Experience

Experience a fully rigged drone in action at the drone cage or step into a virtual world to experience a completely new reality. The Mediatech drone cage exhibition will enable film makers to experience the drone in action. Participants will have a hands-on experience operating the camera on the Freely Movi Pro gimbal while attached to the drone. Mediatech 2019 will once again offer visitors a first-hand experience of the latest in VR technology.
