Show Sage reports that PLASA Focus: Nashville 2012 exceeded all expectations

Following the close of PLASA Focus: Nashville 2012, Show Sage, the North American Premium Partner and distributor for Dataton WATCHOUTTM mulit-image and presentation software, reports that the show was a great success and exceeded all expectations. During the event, Show Sage experienced strong booth traffic drawn in by its two unique demonstrations of WATCHOUT: an architectural masking and mapping example courtesy of Bart Kresa, projection designer, of BARTKRESA Design and a three-monitor show demonstrating WATCHOUT's multi-display and multi-orientation capabilities. Booth visitors represented the full spectrum of event attendees from producers to lighting designers to representatives from houses of worship.

“The architectural lighting example was a real attention grabber and a great conversation starter,” explains Jim Testa, president of Show Sage. “Overall, we were very pleased with the quality of the conversations and the interest in WATCHOUT and Show Sage's WATCHOUT-tuned computer systems.”

Show Sage would like to acknowledge Plasa, Shepard Exposition Services, Bradfield Stage Lighting and VER-Nashville for their exceptional support during the show.
