Meeting Services, Inc. And JBL’s New Powered Full-Size VerTec Line Arrays Make General Sessions At 2008 NAB Show Sound Better Than Ever

Demonstrating the power and performance of JBL Professional VERTEC® line arrays, San Diego-based Meeting Services, Inc. provided the audio system for the general sessions, including the Opening Keynote, at the 2008 NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. The live sound system features the new VERTEC VT4889ADP full-size powered line array loudspeaker and VT4880ADP powered arrayable subwoofer.

Held at the Barron Room in the Las Vegas Hilton, this year’s Opening Keynote Session featured actor/director Tim Robbins and news anchor Charles Osgood, as well as NAB President/CEO David Rehr. The event drew an attendance of more than 2,000 people. Additionally, the audio system at the Barron Room was used for other general sessions throughout the duration of the show.

“This being the premier show for the broadcast industry, the eyes of the world are upon you,? said Ken Freeman of Meeting Services. “The entire show is broadcast live on the Internet at this point, so it’s a sound reinforcement application with a huge broadcast element. There’s no room for error.?

The front-of-house system at the Barron Room includes a left/right configuration of five VT4889ADP line array elements per side, with a ground-stacked left/right arrangement of two VT4880ADP arrayable subwoofers per side. Four VRX928 portable, compact line array loudspeakers provide outfill, while another pair of VRX928 loudspeakers were flown in the lighting rig for stage foldback. Additionally, a pair of VRX932LA portable line array loudspeakers were used as a center cluster.

Show producer Mark Layton of Layton Productions from Orem, Utah remarked, “This was the best sounding NAB show ever. Even Bob Barker [2008 NAB Broadcasting Hall of Fame inductee] noticed that he could go anywhere in the room and be clearly heard.?

According to Freeman, Meeting Services’ purchase of the new full-size powered VERTEC line array loudspeakers has already reaped benefits. “One of the challenges we face in all venues is an issue of size and space because everyone is asking for products with smaller footprints,? he said. “So having onboard power on these VERTEC loudspeakers saves a lot of space, and the Crown amplification is second to none.?
