In 2019, Funktion-One introduced a first-of-its-kind compact speaker variant. The launch of the Vero VX compact point source vertical array was, of course, not the headlining story of the event production world in 2020. Early March of the same year saw the near-complete shutdown of countless trades around the globe due to restrictions imposed to curb the spread of COVID-19.
As an industry inherently reliant on social gatherings, the nightclubs, concert halls and festival production companies of the world were among the hardest hit by the ensuing social distancing mandates. Introducing a touring concert sound system to an already competitive market was made all the more challenging for Funktion-One by the global lockdown.
