Harman Pro North America (HPNA) is putting the finishing touches on a new semi truck with a 53-foot trailer that will soon be used to showcase Studer and Soundcraft mixing consoles, AKG microphones and other Harman equipment to broadcast, contracting/consulting and recording professionals throughout the United States.
Modeled on the highly successful Crown truck, HPNA’s new mobile demonstration and training facility will make its official maiden voyage to the NSCA Expo March 16, 17, and 18 in Las Vegas before heading out on Harman Pro Roadshows April 10, 11, and 12 in Las Vegas and May 23 and 24 in Atlantic City, N.J. After that, it will frequently visit broadcasters from coast to coast.
“This vehicle affords us the ability to spend more time with both current and potential customers and familiarize them with our technologies in a self-contained, controlled studio environment,” says HPNA Vice President and General Manager Kim Templeman-Holmes. “Being able to drive this facility right up to broadcasters’ and systems integrators’ front doors and allow them to be hands-on with our brands in a distraction-free, comfortable setting will undoubtedly prove to be mutually beneficial.”
The new trailer comprises two well-isolated environments. One room permanently houses a Studer Vista 8 digital live production console, and the other is highly configurable to host a variety of different demo/training setups. Aside from featuring Studer, Soundcraft and AKG products throughout, the mobile facility is also equipped with products from several of Harman’s sibling manufacturers, including Crown, JBL and Lexicon.
