Berlin, June 2nd, 2016: The Innovation Day is a famous networking event for small- and medium-size high-tech companies in Germany. Once every year the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs hosts this combined conference and exhibition in cooperation with the renowned AiF Projekt GmbH, an organization carrying out SME funding programs on behalf of the ministry.

This year, AFMG’s Managing Director Stefan Feistel had been invited to give a short interview at the side of Federal Minister Sigmar Gabriel directly following his opening speech. The talk focused on a 2-year R&D project for which AFMG and its sister company SDA were awarded a government grant. The research work dealt with the modeling, optimization, and configuration of robotic line arrays.

Stefan Feistel explained to the audience how quickly the pro-audio industry has been moving forward in the last years toward more flexible, more powerful, and more intelligent loudspeaker systems. Digitalization, as well as automation, are rapidly making their way into every industry. And clearly, line array technology is seeing the same changes. New simulation and optimization functions, such as AFMG's FIRmaker, can improve the system performance dramatically and modern communication interfaces facilitate seamless integration among all components.

AFMG is proud of having been engaged in this event and gladly underlined the success of the on-going support activities of the German government for innovative companies in all business areas.
