TPI Spotlights Anya on Tom Petty’s Hypnotic Eye Tour

We are pleased to share this feature article with friends and supports of EAW by TPI – Total Production International.

North American sound company, Sound Image, joined EAW’s expanding global network of Adaptive Performance Partners through the purchase of an Anya system. After putting the system through an extensive evaluation process, award winning FOH engineer, Robert Scovill, specified Anya for Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers latest arena tour, Hypnotic Eye. TPi spoke to the audio crew for a tour exclusive.

Here are a few “pull quotes” from the feature.

“We’ve been using the same system for 8,000 – 36,000 people. It shows just how technology is moving on, it’s great and I’m embracing it; it’s going to transform the sound industry.”

“I haven’t been this excited about a new approach to PA technology in a couple of decades now,” said Scovill. “The approach that EAW has taken with Anya is a leap forward in the quality and the way in which audio can be presented to a large audience. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to be an early adopter of Anya.
