PL+S 2017: d&b to present new app and software releases27 March 2017
At Prolight + Sound 2017 next week, d&b audiotechnik will offer visitors the first chance to explore the ArrayCalc Viewer app, launched at the show, as well as the new R1 Array verification tool.
The ArrayCalc Viewer app is a mobile interface providing key information needed for positioning and flying a d&b loudspeaker system in a quick and easy format, including all relevant rigging, setup and system details. Staff will be on hand to demonstrate the app.
The R1 Array tool works by identifying the position of a loudspeaker in an array, then comparing its order within the array to the one in ArrayCalc.
The J-Series, Y-Series and V-Series make full use of the new software solutions. The three Series deliver scalable and flexible methods to tackle any mobile or permanent professional audio task, from the smallest corporate speech reinforcement, all the way up to large scale stadium shows. Within the d&b family, these three siblings combine line and point source technologies, acoustically and visually, to ensure the highest speed of deployment, efficiency and consistency.
Co-operatively they share the same standard amplifier platform, cabling solutions and three-point rigging procedure and design. The Series are also further enhanced by the d&b Workflow and latest suite of enabling technologies: ArrayCalc simulation software, including the optional ArrayProcessing optimisation function; NoizCalc immission prediction software, and R1 Remote control software.
Away from the stand, two d&b presentations will be hosted at the Manufacturers’ Forum, located at level C, in room ‘Substanz’. On Wednesday 5 April from 2-3pm, David Claringbold, former technical director of Sydney Opera House, will explore the theme of sound in the environment as part of the d&b audiotechnik Sound Futures program.
On Thursday 6 April, from 3-4pm, Dr Elena Shabalina and Daniel Belcher take on the topic of noise emission management. Following the launch of NoizCalc at last year’s show, the presentation will focus on its first year in the field. Elena and Daniel will examine the first experiences, including measurements and comparisons.
Stand: C15, hall 3.1
