ISE 2017: first showing for d&b’s new install speakers16 December 2016
d&b audiotechnik has announced it will be providing visitors with the first opportunity to see its latest installation loudspeakers, 24S and 24S-D, along with a joined up toolkit of other speakers, software, and electronics.
Interactive workstations will guide visitors through the streamline d&b Workflow, and show interoperability possibilities with third party system controls.
The 24S and 24S-D loudspeakers will be exhibited for the first time having been launched with the 21S-SUB in October 2016.
This system resets the performance level of the redesigned xS-Series to offer a full range, all-in-one solution. The system is suited to the dynamic needs of nightclubs, live performance venues, houses and worship and multipurpose centres.
On behalf of d&b, David Claringbold (pictured), former director of Sydney Opera House, will discuss the evolution of entertainment, sports, retail and leisure venues, from traditionally single purpose buildings, to more complex spaces. “Modern venues are developing sophisticated business models,” he explained, “with 24/7 utilisation, driven by a diverse program. The model is no longer linear. This demands new ways of approaching audio technology and new opportunities for creativity.
“To meet the complex needs of our ever changing world in a meaningful way, we must explore, and further our understanding of how high quality sound can add value to life, art and enterprise. I will take a provocative look at the way sound deeply connects us – to our environment, our society, ideas and art.” The future of loudspeaker system design will also be examined, and experienced, in the first public demonstration of a d&b Soundscape.
