Asia beckons AV experience

Kospro International is claiming success in Asia with its offer the consumers – the ultimate sensory experience,

Managing director Rob Scott said the company was achieving prominence in Australia and Asia with its audio, lighting and video integrated systems.

Mr Scott, who formed Kospro with partner John Goldsmith in 1997, said his Adelaide Terrace office will become an Asian hub to serve growing regional demand for the company’s audio visual creations.

His optimism is based on Asia’s insatiable appetite for new technology, the proliferation of new television licenses in Indonesia and a thriving film and television industry in Malaysia, India and the Philippines.

“These industries are in many ways in their infancy and Australian companies, which are closer to them than those in the UK and the US, are in a great position to offer technical support,” Mr Scott says.

“We offer a one-stop shop. Our concepts can encompass everything right through from the camera to the transmitter.

“We are not just offering to design and install, sound, lighting and broadcasting systems. We work with architects, electrical engineers and general contractors to ensure the highly sensory experience of sound and lighting is optimised.”

After just three years in business Kospro, with 38 staff, is beating long-established multi-nationals like Sony for contracts in Asia.

It has offices in Malaysia and Jakarta to promote its creations now featuring at a performing arts theatre in Jakarta and at Pasaraya TV where a design will be completed in January.

A multi-million dollar design contract for HVD Entertainment in Kuala Lumpur - the biggest film and television studio in the region - is almost completed.

“We were competing against multi-nationals like Thomsons, Sony and Phillips for this contract,” he said.

Kospro’s technical prowess draws on a core team of four designers whose collective expertise includes overlooking the audio operations for the Barcelona Olympic Games, overseeing some 400 concerts at the Perth Entertainment Centre and a period in the spotlight as an international rock musician.

“I was hoping you weren’t going to bring that up,” Scott says.

“My time with the seventies hit band, The Mixtures was many lifetimes away. But, yes my time touring with this band provided a useful experience for my work now. ”
