November 2008 - In Dubai, Protec has just increased its inventory of CAMCO amplifiers for use with JBL Vertec and NEXO GEO line
array systems.Already the biggest user of CAMCO Vortex in the Middle East, Protec has ordered another 24 Vortex 6 units for use
on Kylie Minogue's massive outdoor show in November.
Protec is the largest supplier of sound, lighting, audio-visual, hydraulic and motor control equipment in the region, with an
investment of over 50 Million Dirhams in the latest state-of-the-art equipment. The company has used CAMCO for many years now,
and Edward Ross, Protec's head of audio, continues to be a fan.
"These are fantastic amps, very smooth and the quality of the audio is second to none. The Vortex 6 is really reliable, handling
the challenging conditions of the UAE climate, which has extreme temperatures and high humidity.
The new Vortex 6 amplifiers were acquired from local distributor V.V. & Sons, complete with Ethernet modules which enable laptop
control and monitoring via the manufacturer's proprietary CISUS software platform.
One of the primary reasons for Protec's ongoing investment in the Vortexline is because of the flexibility it gives them in the
warehouse and in the service department."We can swap different amp racks between the different systems, it makes sense in terms
of spare parts, and we have our own bench tech who fixes any problems at our warehouse complex. Not only that, but we have always
enjoyed excellent service from V.V & Sons the distributor here in Dubai and direct from Germany."
This year alone, Protec has had its CAMCO amp racks out on Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Pink and Shakira, but it is preparing itself for
Kylie Minogue's arrival in November, which will require the biggest system ever rigged in the UAE.Her outdoor show at Festival
City is expected to sell 20,000 tickets.More than 60 CAMCO amps will power the JBL Vertec system at this event.
"Although we're using our new CAMCOs to power the latest JBL cabinets that we've bought, they also give us great benefits in our
corporate and conferencing work," says Ed Ross."We've also expanded our stock of NEXO PS Series loudspeakers, adding PS10 and
PS15s, and using them with the powerful CAMCO amps allows us to get a bit more out of these cabinets.That combination has made us
the market leader in the UAE for handling corporate entertainment rentals."
