ATK/Audiotek has begun adding new XTA DP224 speaker management systems to its massive P.A. systems inventory. Along with the XTA DP200 processors already in heavy use by the company, these addtions will bring the number of XTA DP Series processors in ATK/Audiotek's arsenal to over 120. Most recently, ATK/Audiotek added the XTA DP200 to the studio audience sound system it installed at The Tonight Show with Jay Leno at NBC's Burbank studios.
"When we wanted to transition to digital speaker processors several years ago, there were about four or five of them on the market -- and none of them were what we were looking for," recalls Mike Stahl, president of ATK/Audiotek. "But when XTA got into that market, they listened to us and gave us the flexibility we were looking for. We're not committed to any particular company; we're committed to products that meet our standards of excellence. We like to think that if you can sell it to ATK/Audiotek, you can sell it to the world. We think that's exactly what XTA has achieved with their DP Series processors -- that's why we have over 120 of them now."
Also in XTA installation news, the River Center, a massive, three-section new performing arts center connected with the University of Georgia and slated to open in the spring of 2002, will feature complete speaker control and processing using XTA DP202 and DP226 systems. A total of 21 XTA DP Series systems (11 DP202 2x2 units and 10 DP226 2x6 units) will be used as the main speaker processing systems for all of the EAW speaker systems in each of the new River Center's three separate component buildings: a main stage theater, a smaller recital hall, and a unique experimental theater hall designed without proscenium or other traditional theater elements.
