Event Acoustics has appointed audio consultancy Vanguardia as its UK distributor for MeTrao, the company's network audio measurement system. Event Acoustics has also assigned Istanbul-based ELIT the sole rights for Turkey, whilst audio visual design and distribution specialist ZAP will cover Switzerland.

To further boost the UK venture, Vanguardia has recruited sound engineer Roly Oliver as head of live business, with a focus on the distribution of MeTrao to rental companies, consultants and temporary and permanent installations.
MeTrao provides audio professionals and event organisers with a quick way to measure and observe the increasingly strict sound level regulations of live event environments, whilst boosting the quality of the audio output.
The system offers the ability to diagnose off-site which sound system at a multi-stage event is reaching a risky level. It also establishes the problematic frequency so that adjustments can be made. This allows engineers and event managers to avoid breaching regulations by meeting critical off-site limits.
Vanguardia launched MeTrao's distribution on the 1 May 2016, with ELIT and ZAP set to follow suit at the end of the month.
