In your opinion, what are the prospects for the development of the market of professional equipment for show business in Russia today?
We see good prospects for the development of this market in Russia. Projectors from a conventional information display tool turn into a tool for creating the most interesting installations - 3D mapping, and all this happens in real time. Customers understand that dragging the viewer's attention to himself is quite a difficult task, requiring a complex technical solution. And here we are ready to provide such solution. For manufacturers, the direction of professional equipment for show business is extremely important, new models are being developed, new functions are added. For example, there is a replacement of lamp projectors for laser-phosphoric, which provide greater brightness for a longer period.
