Martin Audio launches MLA web portal
WEB: Martin Audio has launched an MLA-dedicated web portal in order to ‘share the secrets’ of its multi-cellular loudspeaker array control technology with its growing community of users and potential customers.
This will be represented in two hierarchical modules: the Public and the Private portals.
The Public portal is live and is available to everyone, while the Private portal will be confined to MLA rental companies and trained technicians, allowing them to access more in-depth information and engage in discussion forums. This is scheduled to go live in the near future.
The portal has been designed to ‘empower users with the ability to achieve greater control, consistency and unparalleled acoustic sonic quality’. Topics range from how to achieve coverage uniformity (and conversely notch out areas where sound is to be avoided), the advantages of being able to banish delay towers and how commercial benefits can be achieved for a greater tour profit.
Through the MLA portal, owners and operators can also be actively engaged in the on-going certification of new engineers in a unique collaboration that links formal factory led training with real world experience.
A new Certified Training Programme complements the online resource, where technical information is hosted alongside an open forum. This gives MLA technical users the opportunity to share knowledge and experience, both with each other and Martin Audio’s design and support teams across the world.
‘With the network of MLA and MLA Compact users growing so rapidly it was essential that we developed this type of forum where technicians could exchange ideas and experiences,’ said Martin Audio MD, Anthony Taylor. ‘At the same time we are pleased to welcome into the community potential customers who have heard so much about this ground-breaking system and want to learn more.’
