NaVigate the way with d&b at prolight+sound

The 13 halls of prolight+sound and Musikmesse can be a nightmare to negotiate, vectoring between the split levels would tax the skills of Geradus Mercator, the father of maps. It was exactly this sort of three-dimensional dilemma that d&b audiotechnik had in mind when it came to addressing the mapping of mixed audio systems; that is line arrays and point sources. Not to mention the importance of navigating the way to the d&b stand 8.0 J46A where the latest loudspeakers from the veritable V-Series stable also make their debut.

Though the laws affecting the behaviour of sound are immutable, environment and loudspeaker design are all too variable. This is why d&b has developed ArrayCalc V7, precisely to accommodate not only line array but point source designs or a combination of both into a single hybrid system design. It also offers a new printout section for any of these options and simplifies the process of creating remote control workspaces via an export function into the d&b R1 remote control software. There will be two working display areas on the stand that provide hands on opportunities to learn more about this latest software advance.

In the 12 months since the d&b V-Series received its worldwide launch at prolight+sound 2012 the acceptance of this new mid-sized line array has been overwhelming. Its huge success has seen several thousand cabinets already shipped. As a consequence a demand for an installation variant has built up and in keeping with tradition at d&b the Vi version in all V-Series variants, Vi8, Vi12 and Vi-SUB will receive their first public outing at this year's show.

Elsewhere, loudspeakers from both the White and Black ranges will be displayed alongside the d&b D6 and D12 amplifiers as well as the d&b Remote network.
