d&b audiotechnik heads full steam to this year’s Prolight +Sound in Frankfurt featuring both their SL Series – GSL and KSL Systems – and the d&b Soundscape, two industry-defining innovations that empower engineers with the tools to create the sound environments they need.
To join in the fun, d&b is also bringing with them new products and enabling technologies, proving it’s not just the big things that matter.
PL+S is a first for the small but mighty B8-SUB/ Bi8-SUB. At a mere 170mm tall the subwoofer’s low profile belies an exceptionally high performance to size ratio. It’s an ideal fit for tight spaces, be they fixed installation or mobile production environments, reproducing frequencies from 43 Hz to 170 Hz. It’s a little wonder.
Supporting system designers in mobile and fixed applications the d&b ArrayCalc Exchange SketchUp plugin enables users to generate an ArrayCalc compatible venue file (*.dbacv) and load it into ArrayCalc. Prolight + Sound also provides a chance to learn more about the Milan protocol and DS20 audio network bridge, the first d&b Milan enabled product.
The d&b Soundscape is rapidly transforming the creative potential of sound design. Soundscape demonstrations will occur daily in the Panorama hall at Messe Forum. Visitors are invited to sessions covering an all-encompassing presentation touching on the concept, system design, the creative experience and application examples. There will also be some distinguished names from the world of creative audio in special presentations and Q+A sessions.
Dedicated workstations at the d&b booth will offer practical insight and guided discussion on d&b’s ever-expanding offering of system integration solutions, the d&b Workflow, and DS family of signal drive and processing, including the DS100 Signal engine – the hardware behind the d&b Soundscape.
“At d&b we believe in the benefits of a systematic approach,” said David Claringbold, Chief Marketing officer at d&b, “Where each considered development builds upon the previous one. We call this Applied Evolution. We are proud of the forward compatibility with which we develop our technology and how this enables our customers to be confident that the performance and value of their system will continue to grow over a long and fruitful lifetime.”
