WPL PULLS IN THE CROWDS AT INTERBEE 2022
InterBEE 2022, Japan’s largest trade forum for broadcast media and entertainment, attracted many of the leading audio manufacturers and distributers.
Held at Makuhari Messe in Chiba over three days, it would be the first time in three years that Martin Audio Japan was able to show off its leading systems, following the COVID-19 pandemic. Many visitors gathered, filled with the confidence that business is now in recovery again.
Martin Audio Japan (MAJ) joined forces with prominent sound sales/distribution company, Audio Brains, and displayed hot products like TORUS and WPS, as well as wedge monitors and installation speakers—all of which attracted non-stop visitors to their stand.
“Following the demonstration, we received many compliments from visitors who attended. I really appreciate everyone who took the trouble to come and listen".
In the adjacent event hall, a loudspeaker demo event called InterBEE Experience was held after a two-year absence. This is always popular as it allows visitors to listen to full-fledged SR speakers in a real world setting and features both domestic and leading international brands.
MAJ took the opportunity to introduce the Wavefront Precision WPL system in the large line array speaker category. WPL is a dual 12ft 3-way bi-amp system, famous for its scalable optimisation, which is Martin Audio's specialty.
Eight WPL cabinets were rigged and run 1 single-box resolution from iKON amplifiers and three SXCF218 subwoofers were groundstacked to boost low frequency.
The WPL demo certainly attracted a good deal of attention as it was noticeable how many people gathered in the venue when it was MAJ’s turn in the rota.
Commented Yusuke Karato, CEO of MAJ, “Following the demonstration, we received many compliments from visitors who attended. I really appreciate everyone who took the trouble to come and listen.”
