Satis&Fy, the multinational events company headquartered in Karben, Germany, has partnered with French loudspeaker manufacturer Nexo, adding 36 of the company’s Scale Through Modularity (STM) modules to its portfolio.
Nico Ubenauf, Satis&Fy’s CEO, praised the “wonderful” STM – the first scalable modular line array on the market – for its versatility, flexibility and potential for integration. Ubenauf is pictured, right, with Nexo's sales manager for Germany, Reinhard Steger.
Satis&Fy is one of Europe’s largest players in the events and media technology sector, and operates out of six locations – four in Germany, one in the Netherlands and one in the US – putting on around 3,500 events a year. The STM system is Satis&Fy’s first Nexo system, although Ubenauf says he hopes the purchase is “just the start” for the fledgling partnership.
Ubenauf comments: “The modularity of the system is really attractive to us because we’re doing both touring and corporate shows, so we need to be extremely flexible with our systems.
“Usually, you have to buy a different system to meet every need, so we are hoping to not have to buy a system of every size, but be able to do two or three different challenges with one system.”
Nexo describes the multipurpose STM, which allows individual modules to be “clipped together” depending on the size and power of the system required, as suitable for “event audiences from 1,000 to 100,000”.
The company previewed its new GEO M6 compact loudspeaker at last weekend’s Prolight + Sound show in Frankfurt. The GEO M6 is the traditionally live music-leaning Nexo’s first foray into the corporate AV sector and “a range of fixed installation opportunities where speech reinforcement is the primary requirement.”
