“The event will see high tech motorised digital screens for a vivid and mesmerising view, as we shall also be livestreaming on ChristTV satellite based channel and website to connect the world as we showcase the best of Zimbabwean gospel artists.”
The motorised digital screen is a first of its kind to hit Zimbabwean stage and the organisers of the awards are proud to bring such technology to Zimbabwe, as this surely opens up doors to up our standards in entertainment.
Powered up by their world class public address system, which made headlines as the first of its kind in Africa in the yester years, Christ TV is upbeat that the awards night will set an unprecedented pace in Zimbabwe.
Livestreaming services which is still not so popular in Zimbabwe is another very cheap way to broadcast and share any event live on the internet, without any need to go through the airwaves broadcasts which is always costly and demanding to set up.
This is a simple but sophisticated way to push video and audio up the internet servers at a constant speed before sharing it to the world from remote online servers, with little delay signals to connect the world from any location.
TechnoMag, Zimbabwe`s leading technology magazine will also be streaming these awards, embedded on their website platform in real time to showcase their technological prowess to their high tech readers.
“PERMICAN” stands for Prophets Emmanuel and Ruth Makandiwa Invitational Concert Awards Night, their own initiative to recognise and motivate Zimbabwean gospel artists. Though we have many musical awards in Zimbabwe, Permican only recognises gospel artists.
Pastor Ted said that winners will be awarded with trophies and cash but artistes that win in absentia will only be awarded with a trophy.
The categories include Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Video of the Year, Best Group, Best Producer and Best Collaboration amongst others.
The award are set to be held at the national city sports centre this Saturday, the 19th of September and nominees have been released ahead of the second ceremony.
