Starting a beautiful friendship: L-Acoustics and Camco announce joint venture26 March 2007
Both the LA4 and LA8 amplified controllers, which will make their European debut at ProLight+Sound in Frankfurt this week, offer cutting-edge loudspeaker amplification, DSP, network control, and comprehensive loudspeaker system protection in a single ergonomic package.
Both companies have been actively collaborating on the development of the new amplified controllers, which are exclusively manufactured for L-Acoustics by Germany-based Camco.
Christian Heil, CEO of L-Acoustics, explains: “The joint venture with Camco on the LA4 and LA8 is the outcome of years of thinking on the future specifications and features of our system approach. We have chosen Camco as our partner for the LA4 and LA8 project as we believe they are the best candidates to combine high performance amplification and networking technologies.
“The DSP engine we jointly developed offers exclusive features, such as dual IIR/FIR algorithms, L-Drive protection system and EQ contour interface. The bottom line for our clients is a turnkey approach, which allows them to get more performance out of their L-Acoustics sound systems with a high level of protection and simplified ergonomics. We are excited about this collaboration with Camco who have our highest respect for their expertise, quality and reliability.”
According to Reiner Sassmann, CEO of Camco: “This collaboration is truly exciting for Camco. The adoption of Camco’s amplifier technology, network and DSP platform by a leading speaker manufacturer is proof that speaker management systems in an all-in-one format are the future direction. Camco is delighted to have had the opportunity to work so closely with L-Acoustics on this project.”
