AV Technik expands VUE al-Class inventory with full-day training

VUE provides al-8 training with AV Technik’s inventory expansion

Portland, Maine – February 6, 2020

AV Technik, one of VUE’s busy rental partners, has a philosophy that “great event experiences are born from great partnerships”. It’s this approach to business that has contributed to AV Technik’s and VUE Audiotechnik’s continued success. AV Technik’s president, Daniel Willis, decided to expand his inventory of VUE products to include al-8 Acoustic Linearity Line array elements to add to the al-4 arrays already in his arsenal.

Willis and his team often provide sound reinforcement for events at the Merrill Auditorium in Portland, Maine. This is a venue that the AV Technik crew is familiar with acoustically, so it was ideal for working with their new al-8 line arrays. Jeff Taylor was deployed by VUE to train AV Technik’s staff on the al-8 rig with al-4’s flown beneath to take advantage of the acoustic linearity.  hs-221-E (Extended Low Frequency) ACM infrasonic dual 21-in subwoofers were stacked on stage just beneath the arrays. AV Technik had a total of 5 of it’s staff onsite during the training. Willis explained why they chose the Merrill Auditorium for training day “We work a ton in that space and they had a dark day which was perfect timing and allowed us to play with the system for the day. The multi-level seating has lots of nooks that always present audio coverage challenges. With Jeff Taylor’s assistance and use of the SystemVUE™ control software, we could properly attenuate the al-4s directed at the floor seats in front of the stage, while making sure the throw provided proper coverage at the back of each balcony seat.” 

AV Technik’s dedication and time spent during this training will greatly benefit their ability to solve audio challenges in that room and similar. VUE and AV Technik’s training is actual proof of their philosophy that “great event experiences are born from great partnerships”
