Kilowatt AV Invests in Absen

Kilowatt AV’s Chief Operations Officer, Neil Zaayman planted his seed in the scene via his passion for audio, with the company’s latest Absen LED panels purchase; supplied by DWR Distribution.

In 2012, Zayyman joined Kilowatt AV as the Sales Manager and before coming a partner in the business, owned by Dillon Jearey. Currently the COO of the company, Zayyman’s latest role is focused on keeping his 50 staff clients content. “Luckily we have a fantastic family here at Kilowatt AV which makes my job very easy,” Zayyman explained.

Zayyman had been “toying with the idea of investing into LED” for a while, having watched it improve “year on year”. In October 2017, DWR Distribution hosted a Road Show in Cape Town, whereby; Kilowatt AV were the first company in Cape Town to see the Absen LED panels being demonstrated, 2.9mm black face were sold.

“The Absen panel itself is great. The assembly is easy and the curving capability makes the product a lot more versatile. The panels fit together nicely, you don’t see any gaps or edges once the wall is built. The picture quality is fantastic and the black face makes a bigger difference than I thought it would. As an indoor screen, there are brighter screens available on the market but the Absen panels are perfect for the application we use. With the pitch being so fine you are able to build a much smaller screen meaning we can upgrade clients with small venues and still have a great image”.

Kilowatt AV took possession of 200 panels on 8 January 2018. “The panels are already booked out until the end of March 2018 on multiple events. We have invested in more processors in order to break the screen up into many configurations so we are able to do up to 6 solutions on 1 day.
