L-Acoustics will introduce a range of new tools and improvements to its design, processing and control toolkit at Prolight+Sound 2018.
New features will be added to Soundvision and LA Network Manager, while the new P1 AVB processor and measurement platform has been designed to offer automated assistance in the comprehensive measurement and optimisation of L-Acoustics’ systems.
Soundvision users will benefit from 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 help ensure the system is further optimised for even coverage through any venue.
LA Network Manager
L-Acoustics’ real time systems control and monitoring software, LA Network Manager, sees the addition of Autoalign to 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 control, able to adjust any parameter by hand at any time.
“From the very beginning, L-Acoustics has created the tools and technology that shape our industry,” said Jeff Rocha, director of product management at L-Acoustics. “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.”
Prolight+Sound 2018 takes place at Messe, Frankfurt from April 10-13.
