s a specialist in integrating audiovisual services, once again Sono was audiovisual provider for 4YFN, the event that brings together local and international entrepreneurial talent within the framework of the GSMA Mobile World Congress 2018.

In total there were 13 spaces including halls, workshop area, entrance to the exhibition ground, other stages and adjacent areas for which Sono provided the rental of video and audio equipment. Sono also provided technical assistance for the three-day event from 26 to 28 February, held at Fira de Barcelona.

Large format LED screen for the central auditoriums

For the presentations in the central venues, located in the Av and B Auditoriums, twoAbsen A3 LED screens measuring 9 x 3 metreswere installed for each. Both were managed with a Barco Encore ME system, and Novastar 4 K and Barco Image Pro processors.

Monitoring systems were provided as reference for those speaking, and each hall had a control rack connected to two HD cameras. Sono was also tasked with sound engineering both spaces with L’Acoustics speakers, and with providing a wireless microphone system to ensure the event ran smoothly.

Other equipment supplied included a 14,000 lumen DLP Christie projector for the Plaza Mayor zone, an 8,000 lumen Barco projector for the Stage C area, a professional 80” Sharp LED display for the Discovery zone, a 95” Samsung LED screen and two more support screens measuring 50” for the Stage D hall, as well as various professional, mediumsized screens for the entrance, the workshop area and the “BA” space.

This was not the first time that Sono Audiovisual technology was responsible for facilitating the technical and human resources to manage 4YFN. Sono was also audiovisual provider for the 2016, 2015 and 2014 editions. More than 19,000 attendees were brought together in this event for startups, which this year saw the participation of 600 investors according to data from the organisation.
