OSA International, Inc., Reports Significant Growth in Live Event and Entertainment Services

OSA International Integrates Company Divisions, Including On Stage Audio, Media Solutions, Integrated Solutions, M.T. Custom Cases, and On Stage Brokers

LAS VEGAS, NV and CHICAGO, IL and NASHVILLE, TN--(Marketwired - Feb 3, 2014) - OSA International, Inc., one of the industry's leading audio visual solutions provider for live events and entertainment, announces significant growth and driving expansion in 2013 within all divisions of the company. A client-centric company, OSA has combined all five of its divisions, invested in new technology, and opened a new office in Nashville to enhance services to its growing clientele.

"Tracking our 2013 business and our clients' needs, it made sense to combine all of our divisions under OSA International, Inc., which includes On Stage Audio, Media Solutions, Integrated Solutions, M.T. Custom Cases, and On Stage Brokers," states OSA's CEO and Founder Mario Educate. "We've seen more of our clients wanting services from multiple divisions, making this consolidation a natural next step."

Media Solutions is the youngest within the OSA family, purchased in 2011. The company remained a separate entity for the past two years to assure its clients the quality of services and solutions they relied on would continue.

"Our clients have more than benefitted from the acquisition, as it has given them access to more talent and better technology, and we've continuously exceeded expectations," states OSA's Vice President of Media Solutions Mark Yokota. "In 2013 alone, we've exponentially increased our inventory of large screen displays, Barco LED tiles and FSN Switchers, Christie and DP projectors, and much more. Our clients' needs come first, and by having state-of-the-art technology in our inventory, operated by the best talent in the industry, allows us to make their vision a reality."

Additionally, OSA has become the largest inventory holder of Martin Audio MLA and MLA Compact enclosures in North America, and second largest in the world. OSA recognized early on MLA technology is the now and future of loudspeaker arrays for any event and venue, even the most acoustically challenging locations. The sound quality and precision capabilities give audio engineers a single solution to delivering sound consistently throughout a venue, making it the system of choice for some of the largest performers and festivals today.

"Sound ordinances for outside venues is a growing issue and the MLA sound systems is the solution," states Educate. "MLA delivers audio with precision. Engineers have complete control, and they are able to contain the audio within specified boundaries, while making sure the farthest seat from stage receives the same sound quality as the front row. This is one of the biggest advances in audio technology I've seen in many years."

OSA has installed and used the MLA system for some of the largest venues in the country. The Ravinia Festival equipped the pavilion stage for its 2013 summer schedule and received zero sound complaints from the surrounding residential neighborhood, as well as rave reviews from some of the biggest acts. The summer 2013 schedule at the Ravinia Festival featured Steely Dan, Matchbox 20, Fleetwood Mac, and many more.

OSA's M.T. Custom Cases also experienced substantial growth in 2013, with new case and display designs for the event and touring industries. M.T. designed and built a new and unique modular stack rack that not only enhances the show site appearance backstage but also decreases setup time, as it can be pre-assembled, including custom wiring, before arriving to the destination. Additionally, M.T. designed and fabricated new VRack flying frames, equipped with power and input panels. All M.T. cases and displays are constructed with its exclusive, patented reinforcement design, ensuring durability and quality. Continuing into 2014, M.T. has OEM plans with some of the largest audio visual manufacturers in the industry.

While 2013 brought significant growth, OSA already sees that trend moving into 2014 with a heavy schedule of live production work for NBA, corporate shows, product launches, and TV broadcasts. "We have a lot of plans in motion to ensure we continue to provide the ultimate client and audience experience," says Educate.
