d&b: the integrator’s choice at ISE

With numerous key additions to the product portfolio, integrators found the right solutions and more for permanently installing sonic excellence with d&b.

At the stand, the d&b ‘network corner’ gave visitors the 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. The slimline cardioid xC-Series column loudspeakers were also at the stand, proving that sonic excellence doesn’t have to mean visual compromise. And there was a chance to get hands-on with the remote interface of the 10D and 30D installation amplifiers, as well as the integrated d&b software tools for planning, controlling and monitoring systems.

Visitors to the demo lounge were introduced to ArrayProcessing, the optimization tool for d&b line array systems, as well as the latest loudspeakers, software and electronics. With comfortable seating, complimentary drinks, and specialist support, guests familiar and new to d&b enjoyed a relaxed environment to network, chat and exchange information.

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.“
