Martin Audioâ€™s Multi-cellular Loudspeaker Array (MLA) celebrated a double success in Frankfurt this month.
Just six months after winning the top prize at PLASAâ€™s coveted Awards for Innovation, voted by an independent panel of 16 expert judges during the trade
show at Londonâ€™s Earls Court, they scooped up the equally prestigious MIPA Musikmesse International Press Award for Best PA System during the Pro Light+Sound expo in Frankfurt.
The MIPA award, voted for by more than 100 magazines worldwide, was presented to Managing Director, Anthony Taylor and R&D Director, Jason Baird by Dr. Walter Werhan, editor in charge of Production Partner, Event Partner, Professional System and Sound & Recording, during a gala awards ceremony held at the Messeâ€™s Saal Europa. MM-Musik-Media-Verlag, publisher of these magazines, is also organizer of the MIPA Awards.
Considered as the â€˜Grammysâ€™ of the Musical Instrument / Pro Audio industry, this was one
of 40 categories recognised by the panel. Said Anthony Taylor. â€œIt has been an incredible year for the MLA and its design team headed by Jason Baird.
â€œWinning the top PLASA Award was a highlight but to be recognised by the worldâ€™s press â€” the harshest critics of all â€” underpins the faith that we and our customers have in this incredible game-changing system.â€?
