Martin Audio announced that it has received a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation for its Wavefront Precision optimized line arrays, one of 205 organizations in the UK to be recognized with the honor.
Employing more than 60 people, Martin Audio is celebrating its 50th year in designing and manufacturing professional loudspeaker systems. The Wavefront Precision family of optimized line arrays are passive systems that are able to set the independent coverage goals for three key parameters: Audience Area, where sound distribution should be even with respect to volume and frequency response; Non-Audience Areas, where sound should not leak in to; and Hard Avoid Areas, where sound must not leak at all. The technology within these systems is protected by a granted UK patent. (Go here for more specifics on Wavefront Precision.)
