Growth of uploads to the GDTF Share has been constant, with a major jump around PL&S.

According to the latest GDTF Share report for April, manufacturer-provided devices on the platform have nearly doubled, marking a significant increase from the constant growth observed in recent months. While it’s difficult to pinpoint the exact reasons behind this surge, the recent Prolight & Sound exhibition in Frankfurt could be a contributing factor, with manufacturers unveiling new devices and providing GDTF files immediately with them.

This development is excellent news for users of software that employ GDTF, as major manufacturers like Robe, Clay Paky, Ayrton, Arri, Cameo, Martin, SGM, ADJ, Elation, Prolights, and more have started offering their official files. With this support, users can readily begin using, planning, and pre-programming these devices.

In addition, the rise in manufacturer-provided devices indicates a growing awareness and adoption of the GDTF format, highlighting its value and versatility as a standard file format for the lighting industry. As more manufacturers continue to offer their devices on the GDTF Share platform, it is likely that we will see even more widespread adoption of GDTF in the future, further enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of lighting design and production.
