The new dBTechnologies line array, VIO L212, has been installed as the main system of Atlantico Live!, a famous and popular concert space in Rome that has always been a destination for entertainment and live music.
Atlantico Live! is a highly valued and unique location in Italy, thanks its ability to combine the charm of a traditional concert space with the functionality of a large and multifunctional venue. With a total capacity of 3,000, Atlantico Live! is a complex and compact structure built on two different levels, including services and comfortable adjacent spaces. The venue is a dynamic and versatile place able to host events, happenings and performances of many of the most famous national and international artists including Francesco De Gregori, Steve Vai, Mika, Litfiba, Mumford and Sons, Limp Bizkit and Bob Dylan.
The dBTechnologies system had already shown its potential by assisting the performances of Spandau Ballet on the evening of October 24, John Butler Trio on October 26, Luca Carboni on October 28 and Timmy Trumpet on October 31.
The project highlighted many of the features of VIO L212, which was especially designed to ensure high sound intelligibility and total acoustic compatibility with other VIO systems. At the end of the first and intensive music week, the staff who helped manage, evaluate and supervise the acoustic performance were impressed.
Antimo Acciardo of Amplificando Live, the sound service manager of the venue, expresses total support of the dBTechnologies system: “There are many reasons that led us to make this choice for one of the most desirable venues in the area. The VIO L212 performance reflected our parameters and it is positioned in line with some of the most competitive products that the professional audio market offers today.”
The characteristics and potential of VIO L212 had already emerged during a first listening phase at the Fabbrica Festival in Rome. Acciardo notes, “Our initial interest in VIO was confirmed with a demo at dBTechologies’ headquarters and subsequent listening tests at the Atlantico Live! in Rome.”
Some of the reasons that determined the choice of the system were also some strengths that distinguish dBTechnologies, which, affirms Acciardo, include professionalism and unrivaled field support, “which represents security for us, knowing we have a world-class team behind us if we need them.”
Acciardo continues with an optimistic wish for the future, “We are excited about this collaboration with dBTechnologies and look forward to great things in the future.”
