d&b audiotechnik announced the availability of two new software enabling technologies: CPL for SL-Series (coupling), and Temperature Humidity Control (THC) real-time high frequency compensation for loudspeaker arrays. SL-Series new CPL function allows full benefit of the SL-Series extraordinary LF headroom. THC provides high frequency compensation due to temp/humidity as part of the d&b ArrayProcessing software: fluctuations in both temp/humidity can now be addressed in real time via the R1 Remote Control software — simplifying control and saving time. These software updates will be available for download December 12, 2019.
“Visiting many SL-Series installation sites and working with the users and tech teams in the field, we realized that there was still room to improve the system workflow,” said Werner ‘Vier’ Bayer, d&b Product Management. “These two new enabling features will greatly improve daily workflows basis and elevate on-site system performance. I encourage all users to update their system software as soon as possible.”
CPL for SL-Series
With the existing d&b line array CPL (Coupling) function, which is used to shape the array frequency response for rooms as well as personal preference, the system’s frequency shelving function can prevent access to the full frequency range potential of the system — meaning that the SL-Series LF headroom below 100Hz is not fully available when CPL is engaged. The new CPL software allows SL-Series to shape LF and LoMid responses independently with individual controls for LOW and MID array response, adding a new level of flexibility and efficiency to the CPL workflow.
Temperature Humidity Control
The new THC function within ArrayProcessing is accessed through d&b R1 remote software. It enables real-time adjustment for changing atmospheric conditions. The new THC function works on any group of d&b arrays operating in ArrayProcessing mode. It is an excellent new tool for any indoor or outdoor venue where temperature and humidity conditions may change multiple times throughout the event.
With improvements in resolution detail, flexibility, response accuracy, and operation efficiency, these new enabling technologies will deliver a new level of performance, workflow efficiency and simplicity for users.
