On the heels of exponential 2018 sales growth and worldwide market acceptance, VUE Audiotechnik’s NAMM 2019 presence will showcase the technology and talent that has made the brand a world touring leader and market disrupter.
Dubbed “The VUE World Order”, VUE’s presence will be anchored by an interactive exhibit on the second level of the ACC North Hall, booth #18105. The now-complete and “uber-performing architectural loudspeaker” e-Class series will be exhibited in a 5.1 immersive environment, along with a display of the al-Class hybrid line array systems, and the h-Class high-definition loudspeakers. Three new members of VUE’s sales staff along with the rest of the VUE crew will be on hand to answer product questions while serving up fresh coffee and cappuccinos.

AES@NAMM Line Array Academy
Attendees interested in experiencing the increasingly in-demand, and Parnelli-nominated, al-12 line array in person, can attend a VUE’s AES Line Array Academy hands-on training on designing and building hybrid al-Class systems. The 5-hour classroom and outdoor rigging program is offered daily Thursday through Sunday. Attendance requires a $69 AES@NAMM pass; but contact Jon Garner at jgarner or call VUE at +1-760-520-1069 for access to a limited number of complimentary passes.
On Friday night, the VUE crew and special guests will be a gold sponsor of the Parnelli Awards. VUE is nominated for “Indispensable Technology” for the al-12 line array system. VUE devotee Chris Lee is nominated for Monitor Mixer of the Year for his work on the al-Class (and hm series) with Kendrick Lamar, while Kyle Hamilton is nominated for FOH Mixer of the Year and Sound Image is nominated as Sound Company of the Year for their work with the al-Class on Janet Jackson.
VUE has made exclusive arrangements for NAMM attendees to hear several systems in action at two of LA’s most iconic rock and jazz venues: The Mint LA and Herb Alpert’s Vibrato Grill. Anyone interested in attending should visit the VUE booth to obtain VIP passes; each venue is open all 3 nights of the show. VIP pass quantities are limited.
It Doesn’t Get More Real Than This: Mortal Danger At Shows
Live sound engineers should also plan to attend the Event Safety Alliance and PLSN/FOH panel discussion It Doesn’t Get More Real Than This: Mortal Danger At Shows. The event will be co-hosted by VUE’s Shawn London and Jim Digby, former Linkin Park tour manager, on the topic of live event safety. Shawn has the unenviable distinction of having been witness to the violent terrorist attack while mixing Eagles of Death Metal at the Batalclan nightclub in Paris. The panel will be held at 1:45 pm on Thursday, January 24th at the Hilton – Level 4, Room A5.
House of Worship Q&A Networking Events
House of Worship attendees are also invited to visit the VUE booth for one of two Q&A networking sessions. The first, on Thursday, January 25th from 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. will be hosted by Brandon Rinas along with special guests from Mountain View Community Church. At 5:30 p.m, Rinas will host a pre-NAMM Night of Worship gathering at VUE’s booth before heading out for a complimentary cocktail hour. On Friday, January 26th from 12:00 – 1:00 Ken Berger and Rinas will host a second event focused on system design. Refreshments and snacks will be served at each.
