FRANCE/ICELAND: The French audio company has unveiled the LA-RAK touring rack, writes David Davies. The LA-RAK is the central element of the new L-ACOUSTICS system architecture, built upon the LA8 amplified controller, and offers an advanced drive-rack solution for all L-ACOUSTICS systems, covering signal and power distribution in a comprehensive plug-and-play touring package. In other news, the company has recently announced the appointment of Nyherji as its distributor for Iceland.
Created as a universal platform to facilitate cross-rental between DOSC NETWORK members, and to ensure compatibility with the legacy analogue cabling standard of L-ACOUSTICS systems, the LA-RAK module features a specification including one 9U rack with LEXAN front and rear covers; three LA8 amplified controllers; an I/O distribution panel for analogue signal, L-NET (control and monitoring) and L-DGA (digital audio) network distribution within the rack and link out with other racks; 2U space for implementing L-NET and L-DGA network switches when operating with a star network topology; and an I/O panel for power distribution of three LA8s, two Ethernet switches and one auxiliary AC outlet.
Featuring a working principle that is entirely modular, the LA-RAK enables the user to physically assemble and interconnect multiple modules to fit numerous applications. LA-RAK is due to begin shipping this autumn.
Another recent development for L-ACOUSTICS sees IT corporation and AV integrator Nyherji assume distribution responsibilities in Iceland.
"The newly established presence of L-ACOUSTICS in Iceland is very representative of the territorial expansion we have experienced since the year 2000," the manufacturer's director of marketing, St_phane Ecalle, tells PSN-e. "With the addition of Nyherji to our team of brand representatives, L-ACOUSTICS can now boast a presence in more than 50 countries worldwide."
