d&b audiotechnik is the integrator's choice at ISE
With numerous key additions to the d&b portfolio, integrators at ISE 2016 found the right solutions, and more, for permanently installing sonic excellence with d&b.
At the stand, the d&b ‘network corner’ was an opportunity to fully explore the advantages of the new DS10 Audio network bridge, the latest advancement in the d&b system approach. Designed specifically for d&b amplifiers, the DS10 places d&b further up the signal chain, straight from the console. It features sixteen AES3 output channels via the Dante audio transport protocol through Ethernet, four AES3 input channels and an integrated 5port network switch.
Meanwhile the award winning V-Series point sources were on display, with one side of the cabinet open to reveal the innovative mid-range horn. Also standing tall for d&b design and engineering, were the slimline cardioid xC-Series column loudspeakers, proving that sonic excellence doesn’t have to mean visual compromise. Plus there was hands-on interaction with the remote interface of the 10D and 30D installation amplifiers, and the integrated d&b software tools for planning, control and monitoring d&b systems.
ArrayProcessing, the optimization tool for d&b line array systems was in the spotlight at the stand and d&b demo lounge, where free to attend sessions introduced listeners to its functionality, proven user-friendliness, and benefits. In a different session the latest loudspeakers, software and electronics were introduced and examined. Comfortable seating, complimentary drinks, and specialist support, made the demo lounge a relaxed environment to network, chat and exchange information, for visitors familiar and new to d&b.
Sabina Berloffa, Director of Marketing and Product Management at d&b commented: “ISE was a great opportunity to present our enhanced installation portfolio and to highlight the d&b system approach for permanent installations. From our experience of the show so far, it’s clear that integrators are attracted not only by the reputation of d&b sound but also, by the significant application benefits. A d&b solution offers network system integration, reliability and predictability, as well as ease of use - straight out of the box. d&b is increasingly chosen by integrators worldwide for the most acoustically challenging environments, including theaters, concert halls, live clubs and houses of worship.“
