ATK Audiotek and HARMAN’s JBL VERTEC® Line Arrays Prove Victorious at Super Bowl XLVII

NORTHRIDGE, California – Providing audio services for the Super Bowl for the 16th straight year, ATK Audiotek deployed its custom-designed, cart-based audio system for Super Bowl XLVII, held at the Superdome in New Orleans. Once again, ATK Audiotek equipped its carts with HARMAN’s JBL VERTEC® line array loudspeakers for the Halftime Show of the National Football League’s championship game. The carts were also used for the rendition of “America the Beautiful” featuring the Sandy Hook Elementary School Choir and Jennifer Hudson, as well as Alicia Keys’ performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

CBS’ Super Bowl XLVII broadcast reached an average of 108.41 million viewers in the United States, while a record 164.1 million people in the U.S. watched all or part of the telecast for at least six minutes. Beyoncé starred in the Halftime Show, which included a reunion performance with Beyoncé and her former Destiny’s Child bandmates, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. The Post-Game Show included the Lombardi Trophy presentation, awarded to this year’s NFL champion Baltimore Ravens.

For Super Bowl XLVII, ATK Audiotek deployed 16 of its custom-designed cart systems, which allow for easy setup between events, and quick transport of the JBL VERTEC loudspeakers on and off the field. Eight of the carts included five VERTEC VT4889 fullsize line array elements, while the other eight carts included four VT4889’s. Each cart was also equipped with two VT4880A fullsize arrayable subwoofers, while the four carts that split the 50-yard line for field foldback also each held two VRX932 Constant Curvature loudspeakers.

“We have relied on VERTEC line arrays in the Super Bowl for several years running and they have not let us down thanks to their reliable performance and high output,” said Kirk Powell, Engineer in Charge for ATK Audiotek. “In one of the world’s most widely-viewed televised events of the year, we need an easily-deployed, world-class loudspeaker system and that’s what we have with VERTEC.”
