After its two-year anniversary this past spring, the General Device Type Format (GDTF) is delivering big news. Along with our fellow GDTF founders MA Lighting and Robe lighting, we’re proud to announce that DIN SPEC 15800 officially recognizes the GDTF as an open standard for the entertainment industry worldwide.
Undoubtedly, there’s been a lot to process lately with the Coronavirus (COVID-19). For anyone who missed our announcement on Friday, here’s what you should know about the 2020 Vectorworks Design Summit.
From the beginning, we have been closely monitoring the rapidly evolving situation regarding COVID-19. During these uncertain times, one constant remains. Our first priority will always be the health and safety of our customers, partners, and employees. After careful consideration we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Vectorworks Design Summit that was scheduled for April 22-24 in San Diego, California.
Cue the fog machines, lighting, and jumbo screens. There’s no tradeshow like the Live Design International Show (LDI) — with around 14,000 attendees in the Las Vegas Convention center, the show felt like a rock concert. The leading conference for live design professionals from all around the globe, LDI hosts a community working in a wide range of international live and broadcast venues — festivals, corporate events, theatre, concerts, clubs, theme parks, architainment, and houses of worship.
The General Device Type Format (GDTF) made quite the impression when it was first announced at last year’s Prolight + Sound, and the entertainment industry’s open file format continues to evolve with its latest development: GDTF 1.0.
