Martin Audio recently hosted exclusive demonstrations of its MLA Compact loudspeaker platform for leading theatrical sound designers, acoustic consultants, audio engineers and event production management in New York City and Washington D.C.
The New York demo was held in the Grand Ballroom, Manhattan Center Studios, while the Washington D.C. demo took place in the Lisner Auditorium at The George Washington University.
Both events provided a unique opportunity for attendees to learn more about MLA Compact’s cellular drive technology while experiencing the coverage, dynamic audio quality and clarity of speech the system is known for in person.
Hosted by Martin Audio U.S. director of operations Rob Hofkamp, the demonstrations featured a detailed technical presentation by research and development director Jason Baird and a live demonstration of the system including unique optimization techniques around hard avoid and non-audience areas.
More than 100 people attended the demos and the response was uniformly positive. Enthusiastic attendees came from as far away as Paraguay and Austria.
Hofkamp states, “It was a pleasure to do these demos and receive such positive feedback on our presentation and the MLA Compact . The attendees also enjoyed the exceptional live acoustic performances from singer Layla Davias & guitarist Frank Portalatin, alongside full-bore metal recordings from Rammstein in excess of 110 dB. Special thanks also to Jim Risgin of OSA and Mike Scarfe of MHA for their support of the NYC and Washington DC demos respectively.”
