Notes to editors


Best served as an ice cold shot, Jägermeister is a family owned brand and a unique herbal spirit that was developed by Curt Mast from a secret recipe.  Launched in Germany over 80 years ago, Jägermeister is made by Mast-Jägermeister SE, in Wolfenbüttel Germany using a blend of 56 different herbs, blossoms, roots and fruits from all over the world and this secret recipe has not changed since it was first made. The pure and natural botanical ingredients are extracted in their raw, unprocessed form through a gentle, weeks-long process of cold maceration to create Jägermeister's base. The base, housed in more than 400 oak casks, then "breathes" for one full year to guarantee a high-quality finish, and authentic taste. Jägermeister contains 35% alcohol by volume.

Innovative new racer features ‘public domain’ heroes and villains including the Queen of Hearts, Sherlock Holmes, Frankenstein’s Monster, Cleopatra and more… 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:Viewpoint Games, the studio behind hit VR release VR Karts,has announced its latest title, which takes a clever approach to character licensing.

Founded in 2014 by games industry veterans Neil Campbell and Neil Wigfield, Viewpoint Games has already enjoyed strong success in the VR space and beyond, with hits including VR Karts(PlayStation VR & PC), VR Karts: Sprint(mobile), Ghost In The Toybox(PlayStation 4 & mobile), plus Hungry Shark VR(mobile).

The firm is now working on Kartoon Racers, which uniquely takes iconic heroes and villains from popular culture and mashes them together in a series of crazy and chaotic kart races.

Each race features 12 racers from two rival teams – namely ‘Team Heroes’ and ‘Team Villains’.

Team Heroes features legends such as Sherlock Holmes, King Arthur and Cleopatra, while Team Villains includes classic bad guys such as Captain Hook, Frankenstein’s Monster and the Queen of Hearts.

This use of classic characters is a unique concept from a licensing perspective, allowing Viewpoint Games to provide gamers of all generations with instantly-recognisable characters.

Neil Campbell explains: “We decided to use characters that exist within the Public Domain. By using iconic characters who already have their own unique history, players can immediately identify with them, rather than getting to know a host of new characters and their personalities.

“Animations will evoke the personality of the character. For example, Sherlock Holmes is always cool and collected, while Frankenstein’s Monster is large and reckless.

“We believe Kartoon Racerswill appeal to a wide spectrum of gamers, spanning all ages.”

Viewpoint Games is currently in negotiations with a number of publishing partners, with Kartoon Racersscheduled for release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Switch in 2019.

Exhibition Centre Adds 68 Channels of Axient Digital, Will Increase to 120 Channels by 2019

Stockholm/Sweden, September 17 2018− The Stockholm International Fairs and Congress Centre in Sweden recently installed 68 channels of the Shure Axient® Digital Wireless System.Stockholmsmässan is Scandinavia’s largest exhibition centre, with a total of 75,000 square metres of exhibition area. It hosts high-level international conferences and events throughout the year, including the world-renowned Medical Congress, which attracts more than 15,000 medical professionals during a three-day period. 

Reliability was a key factor in the decision when it came to selecting a new wireless system. Axient Digital was chosen for its superb audio quality at low latency, long battery life, and versatile channel bandwidth. 

The dedicated in-house AV department, which oversees the small, mid-size, and large conference and exhibition applications, needed a dependable wireless system with excellent performance. Fredrik Zetterberg, Head of Production Event Technologies, Stockholmsmässan, said that the system had “exceeded all expectations in sonic quality.”

“Axient Digital is the best sound quality we’ve ever heard in a digital system,” explains Zetterberg. “From exhibitions to corporate events, we use Axient Digital constantly. This month we will use 132 systems for a two-day corporate event, with a total of 212 wireless systems in operation, showcasing the system’s flexibility and reliability.”

The installation was managed by specialist Swedish audio rental company Parashoot, “Choosing Axient Digital for the Stockholmsmässan project was our first choice of system,” offers Oscar Söderlund, founder of Parashoot. “Signal stability, along with audio clarity, was paramount to a successful installation. Add to this the flexible hardware options and advanced connectivity Axient Digital offers, and there really is no other system you can count on for coverage and signal quality.”
