Martin Audio showcases MLA Compact at Prolight + Sound21 March 2012
Martin Audio is presenting its new MLA Compact Multi-Cellular Loudspeaker Array at Prolight + Sound today – in hall 8, stand F60.
Following the success of the Multi-cellular Loudspeaker Array, the new MLA Compact makes the technology compatible with a wider range of applications and budgets, particularly the medium-scale touring and fixed installation markets.
Sharing the same sonic attributes of the flagship MLA, the new system’s compact size (W: 788mm x H:280mm x D: 500mm) belies its output capabilities: a 12-box array is sufficient for a 5,000-seat venue, claims the company, while a 24-box array is believed to be able to compete with many ‘full-size’ systems.
The intelligent control software incorporated into the system delivers an increased level of performance, focus and coverage consistency compared with conventional line array technology.
MLA Compact will arrive as a fully integrated system: speakers, amplification, DSP and optimisation software. Class D amplification, Loud Technology’s propriety U-NET control network and DSP circuitry are integrated within each enclosure. MLA Compact arrays can also be remotely controlled from the supplied wireless tablet running VU-NET control software.
Director of sales, Simon Bull, said: “MLA Compact is our response to the market demand for a mid-size touring system that can double as an installation system, while retaining all the breakthrough benefits of the original MLA system. MLA Compact enables a much wider segment to buy into our game-changing Multi-cellular technology.”
