BPG HAS INVESTED IN THE LATEST D&B AUDIOTECHNIK KSL SYSTEMS
The d&b audiotechnik KSL System is a part of the holistic d&b approach addressing the broadest range of applications where high quality sound reinforcement and reproduction are a prerequisite. The resulting systems are based on many years of applied evolution, where a clear understanding of the tasks and requirements has been coupled with advances in available technology and streamlined to achieve optimal results. The component parts described here combine to form systems, all the elements fitting together within the d&b Workflow to deliver ease of use, predictability of results, flexibilty and speed of deployment.
The KSL8 and KSL12 line array modules are specifically designed for medium to large scale sound reinforcement. Sharing the same vertical directivity, size, footprint, weight, rigging and driver complement, up to twenty-four KSL loudspeakers can be flown in vertical columns. The 2-Way active design combines ingenious cabinet geometry with forward and side firing low frequency drivers, these couple towards the front, cancel towards the rear and increase low frequency headroom. The driver compliment is completed by a hornloaded mid range and three high fequency drivers mounted to a waveshaping device. The 80°
horizontal directivity pattern of the KSL8 is seamlessly maintained down to the lowest frequencies the loudspeaker produces, while the high output capability can cover a distance range of over 100 m (330 ft), depending on the climatic conditions. The KSL12 has a wider horizontal dispersion pattern of 120° which is also maintained over the entire operating range.
The SL-SUB is equipped with flying fittings, while the SL-GSUB is for ground stack use only. The bass-reflex design uses three 21″ high excursion drivers, one of which radiates to the rear to produce cardioid subwoofer performance to avoid unwanted energy behind the system. The SL-SUB and SL-GSUB extend the bandwidth of a KSL System down to 30 Hz as well as increasing its headroom. The SL-SUB and SL-GSUB can be deployed in conventional left and right ground stacked setups as well as in distributed SUB arrays to achieve an even venue specific coverage pattern.
The patented SL-Series rigging method and flying hardware enables rapid deployment of KSL8 and KSL12 arrays directly from the Touring cart in either compression or tension rigging modes. For
the compression mode, a straight array is flown from the Touring carts, after which a hoist or hand winch is used to curve the array to the defined splay angles. Designed to fit within standard shipping container and truck sizes, the KSL Touring cart accommodates four KSL8 or KSL12 loudspeakers, including flying frames and a transport cover. The SL-SUB Touring cart can house up to three SL-SUB or SL-GSUBs with respective covers
When it comes to mixing live sound, efficiency, sound clarity, and reliability are of critical importance. Avid VENUE | S6L is the industry’s only unified live sound platform that offers 100% software, hardware, and show file compatibility and interoperability across the entire line. It’s also the only system that offers direct Waves and AAX plugin control from the console to elevate mixes, and 128 tracks of built-in Pro Tools recording/playback with Virtual Soundcheck, saving hours of prep time. Plus, you get three years of 24×7 priority support to ensure the show always goes on.
DIGICO SD12 96: A TRUE SONIC POWERHOUSE
Compact in size but big on features, the SD12 96 raises the bar as a multi-application digital console at an exceptionally affordable price point. Not only is the SD12 96 a true sonic powerhouse, it is the first in the SD-Range to feature an integrated recording interface which makes virtual sound checking a snap. Designed to provide optimum performance in live touring, corporate, install, house of worship, theatre and broadcast environments, the SD12 96 incorporates the latest generation Super FPGA technology and Core 2 software to deliver unrivalled power and connectivity in a compact frame.
Designed for even easier operation, the SD12 96’s new DVI display output provides an overview of the console, while brighter LED meters and a DiGiCo Lightbar ensure optimum visibility. Dual 15-inch touchscreens, two assignable master faders and advanced surface connectivity is provided in the form of optional DMI cards.
CHAUVET PROFESSIONAL MAVERICK MK3 WASH
Maverick MK3 Wash raises the bar on output, color consistency, and pixel effects. Powered by 27 (40 W) Osram RGBW LEDs, it has the muscle to handle any application, including long throw situations with ease. Pixel mapping effects, built in color macros and gobos, along with a CTO color mixing option make this powerhouse fixture the complete wash package. Control options include DMX, sACN, Art-Net, Kling-Net or W-DMX.
