d&b continues loudspeaker evolution at Prolight + Sound
Prolight + Sound 2018 at Messe Frankfurt and d&b revealed the next major steps in audio technology evolution. The show was the official launchpad for the GSL System from the SL-Series, a new loudspeaker system sitting right at the top of the company’s product portfolio.
Demos and interactive mixing session using the recently released d&b Soundscape also drew a great deal of attention throughout the show. d&b took the opportunity to announced a series of landmark integrations between Soundscape’s central DS100 Signal Engine and digital mixing consoles from leading manufacturers DiGiCo , Avid and Lawo. The integrations were announced at a live mixing session showing the console workflows & mixing live multitrack recordings
The new GSL System created quite a buzz throughout the show. Exceptional audio performance combines with maximum efficiency into a package elegantly aligned with the system design, deployment and control capabilities of the tried and tested d&b Workflow. The GSL System is a complete solution created specifically for the largest sound reinforcement applications in significantly sized arenas, stadiums and festivals, to accurately deliver any performance style or musical genre.
Prolight + Sound Attendees had multiple opportunities to experience the d&b Soundscape, with two different Soundscape Sessions; The Soundscape Mixing Session and The d&b Soundscape Sessions. The daily d&b Soundscape Mixing Sessions with Serge Grafe, Kraftwerk FoH, were a big success, and guests were keen to learn more about the process of developing a creative concept for a mix using d&b Soundscape.
It wasn’t just the two new d&b releases in the spotlight at Prolight + Sound though, guests could find the full d&b product range in the Sound + Audio Hall on the d&b stand, including all loudspeaker series E,T, J, Y and V-Series, as well as xS, xA and xC-Series. It was the perfect opportunity for attendees to have their questions answered by d&b co-workers, learn more about the products, and experience the d&b innovations in action.
“Prolight + Sound has been a fantastic opportunity to officially introduce the next generation of d&b line array to the market.” David Claringbold, d&b Chief Marketing Officer, comments, “Birthing the SL-Series and Soundscape has changed d&b forever. The resilience, innovation and capacity of the organisation has been tested at every point, and from this we have learnt and grown. This is the finale of a multi-year development phase and the kick-off for a perennial journey of these two outstanding audio technology innovations.”
Prolight + Sound and the official release of the SL-Series, GSL System was the next step in the d&b evolution of loudspeakers, and continues the new era of sound experience.
