UK: Ateis has scheduled the first UK training session for Messenger, writes David Davies. The event is aimed at all designers, engineers, installers and rental specialists who wish to learn more about the potential of the Messenger range of active line array loudspeakers. To be staged at Wigwam Acoustics' Lancashire HQ on June 17th, the session is free to attend, although spaces are limited.

Wigwam is Ateis UK's first reseller of the Messenger digital line array column series, which is said to provide exacting speech intelligibility in reverberant environments. Notable applications to date include a deployment in Liverpool's (Anglican) Cathedral, widely regarded as one of Europe's largest and most challenging ecclesiastical environments.

Wigwam's Mick Spratt tells PSN-e: "We are keen at Wigwam to expand awareness of these digitally steerable active columns as a powerful tool to provide great intelligibility in certain, acoustically difficult environments. There is a general perception that these units work well, but few engineers are trained to set them up. [As a result] we will demonstrate Messenger's potential to engineers and then guide them through the process of a system including the Messengers to highlight that this is a unique solution to an age-old problem for churches, transport hubs and other large spaces."

Attendance at the training day is free of charge, but spaces are limited. To reserve a place, contact Neil Voce at Ateis (07773 331507; neil.voce@ateis.co.uk) or Emma at Wigwam (01706 363400; emma@wigwam.co.uk).
