PL+S 2018: L-Acoustics to intro new optimisation tools

Ahead of Prolight + Sound 2018, L-Acoustics has announced it will be launching new tools and improvements to its design, processing and control toolkit.

New features to Soundvision, LA Network Manager and the launch of the P1 AVB processor and upcoming measurement platform offer automated assistance in the measurement and optimisation of L-Acoustics’ systems.

Upgrades to Soundvision include new Autosplay and Autofilter features. The Autosplay feature allows sound designers to define their target SPL along the audience and Autosplay will rapidly calculate the optimal speaker angles. Once speaker hangs are defined, Autofilter applies DSP settings to ensure the system is further optimised for even, clear coverage through any venue.

The company is also adding Autoalign to its LA Network Manager real time systems control and monitoring software. This will automatically calculate proposed relative delay and polarity for complementary systems like subwoofers and fills. Once in live mode, the new Autoclimate tool integrates temperature and humidity information from sensors on the P1 AVB processor and allows the user to adapt the system response to changing atmospheric conditions, without revisiting prior workflow steps.

While these new tools provide an optimised path to system design and show control, the user remains in full command, able to adjust any parameter by hand at any time.

“These evolutions to our product ecosystem offer the best of both worlds to our partners: a clear path to highest system performance while always keeping our users in control,” explained Jeff Rocha, director of product management at L-Acoustics.

The new Soundvision and LA Network Manager features release throughout 2018.

Demonstrations of the evolved L-Acoustics ecosystem will be held at Prolight + Sound in Hall 3, Kontrast Room. L-Acoustics can also be found in Hall 3.1, stand C11.
