These products include new and unique foldback speakers, entry level surface mount speakers, high SPL flush mount / ceiling speakers as well as new control systems and amplifiers.

John Dodson, general manager of Bose Middle East and Africa for the past 13 years, commented, "Bose is now able to supply a turnkey solution for any audio installation; and where better to shout about it than PALME, the region's biggest and best audio -visual exhibition."

Included in the exhibit wil be some of their proprietary design tools including Modeler® and Auditioner® the Bose proprietary computer aided design / verification tool. Explained Asad Lalani, Manager, Design Services and Training for Bose MEA, "Auditioner is an amazing tool which not only helps the system designer verify his design, but also allows others involved in a project to be part of the design refinement process by listening to the proposed system before it is installed, using a special processor and playback system."

Said IIR Group Exhibition Director, Darren Brechin, "The commitment by these heavyweight companies not only strengthens the sectors in which they are predominant, but further underlines the value they perceive in reaching new markets by their participation at PALME."

PALME 2007 will take place at the Dubai International Exhibition Centre from May 20 -22.
