The Association of British Theatre Technicians 2013 Annual Awards, sponsored by two of the organisation’s Silver Industry Supporters Group 91413541_abtt_theatre-awards_robin-townley-pic-by-laura-braunmembers, Stage Electrics & Triple E, took place on Wednesday evening (12 June), following the first day of the ABTT Theatre Show.

With the Awards’ jury judging throughout the day and final deliberations taking place late in the afternoon, winners were presented with their individually engraved hook-clamp trophies at London’s Truman Brewery, in front of exhibitors, guests and ABTT members.

The winners are as follows:

ABTT 2013 Lighting Product of the Year : PRG V276 manufactured by PRG

Judges’ comments: The judges felt this product offered a way to get high-end and high-definition results from a media server & control desk at a more budget conscious price. The PRG V276 takes the stadium style operational features of the larger PRG desks and allows users to interface with their own Apple laptop processing power, combined with a hand-luggage friendly control surface, to enable grand results in small situations.

Tom Celner, PRG Controls Product Manager, replied, “We’re thrilled to receive this award from ABTT. The VX76 software has been a very successful product for us on our V676 and V476 desks on projects like the opening Olympic ceremonies of London 2012. With the new V276, we can now offer the same software with a compact, affordable control surface.
