CR Kennedy recently completed a series of road shows in each capital city to officially launch the new Leica NOVA series of instruments.
The NOVA range was first launched to the international market at the Hexagon Live conference in Las Vegas in June 2013, and since then, sales of the flagship instrument – the Nova MS50 Multi Station – quickly exceeded the 12 month budget forecast.
With such unprecedented interest in this piece of surveying equipment, it was no surprise that the CR Kennedy Road Shows were very well attended, and the response was overwhelmingly positive.
With events run in Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne, and Perth, the attendance figures peaked around the 500 mark. Not only was the NOVA MS50 front and centre, but there was also presentations on the latest Aibotix Unmanned Aerial Vehicle offering from CR Kennedy, an update on its CORS network – Smart Net Aus – some demonstrations and presentations on the latest in terrestrial scanning technologies with the Leica P20, and also an update on the latest capabilities of the Liscad offerings and how this software package now handles scan data.
A complete hands-on session followed the presentations, with attendees not sure whether to first check out the scanning and imaging capabilities of the MS50, or go straight to the aerial demonstrations where the Aibotix was being flown by remote control, while simultaneously sending imagery directly back to the user.
Either way, there was plenty of information to be gained during the course of the events. Those who attended were treated to a view of the future of data capture and management for measurement applications.
