J-Series and V-Series workshop in Sindelfingen, Germany: small print


Participants should be experienced in tackling sound problems and should want to develop their knowledge of d&b systems with a special focus on the J-Series and the V-Series. Please bring your own laptop (Windows 7 or higher or Mac OS X 10.7 or higher).

The goal

We will introduce you to the various loudspeakers in the J-Series and the V-Series and you will learn how to use them in a working environment. This includes an introduction to basic electroacoustics and familiarization with d&b mounting and rigging accessories. You will learn how to apply the J-Series and the V-Series for optimum results, while taking into account safety aspects.


  • Introduction. We start by positioning the J-Series and the V-Series within the d&b product range and defining the recommended applications for them.
  • Line array theory. Principle considerations of the sound system design. Special solutions implemented into the J-Series and the V-Series.
  • Principle considerations of the sound system design. Special solutions implemented into the J-Series and the V-Series. This session goes into the design of J-Series and V-Series systems taking into account all considerations such as system sizing, special requirements and any limitations. It also investigates the sophisticated set up and configuration possibilities implemented within them.
  • d&b ArrayCalc planning software. d&b line arrays must be designed using the d&b ArrayCalc simulation software. In the workshop, you will be trained in working with this planning software and design a variety of different configuration options.
  • d&b R1 remote control software. Practical solutions for creating a R1 user interface tailored for use with the J or V-Series.
  • Practical parts. In practical work, participants will set up the d&b J-Series and V-Series in different configurations. There will be listening tests for each configuration. Protective clothing and footwear is recommended.
  • d&b ArrayProcessing. In this session the participants are familiarized with the optional ArrayProcessing feature. Background information on sophisticated filter algorithms is provided and explained using practical examples. Participants are introduced to simulation and calculation processes in ArrayCalc as well as to the transfer of the resulting ArrayProcessing settings using the R1 Remote control software. All workflow steps are presented, from simulation in ArrayCalc to transfer of the relevant ArrayProcessing data to the amplifiers using the R1 Remote control software. The workshop is supplemented by a listening session featuring different ArrayProcessing application scenarios.


The content is conveyed in a format that uses practical examples and encourages participants to exchange experiences and play an active role.
