Germany - Prolyte Group will relaunch its complete range of roof systems this year, giving a sneak impression of the new redesigned systems at Prolight+Sound.

The complete redesign encompasses making these systems fully compliant to all applicable standards, rules, regulations, directives, codes and laws.

The revised roof systems will offer state of the art technology and will be available as a box system with add-ons. Very straight forward, what you see is what you get.

"I started in the event business to make emotions. Being involved in the process that creates emotions, that's what we do. We translate creative ideas in a technical way and make it really practical and safe to work with", states Ruud de Deugd, product manager Roof System. Quite a bold statement, but Ruud knows this business inside out. Prolyte is happy to have Ruud back on board, so he can combine his engineering skills with his practical experience and translate these into a range of products that are both of the best quality and borne out of practice.

Prolyte roofs comply to both EN 13814 and ISO 17842-1 and therefore to the relevant parts of Eurocode or any other national or continental standard. This means Prolyte supplies roof systems that are fully compliant and that live up to the state-of-the-art of entertainment technology.

Wednesday, 23 March 2016

Germany - The Prolight+Sound show in Frankfurt will see the official debut of the Alcons LR18 pro-ribbon line-array. The three-way, "compact-mid-size" format line-source sound system, combining the highest sound quality possible with very high SPL capabilities and throw.

By implementing Alcons' multiple-patented pro-ribbon technology for mid and high frequencies, a super-fast impulse response with up-to-90% less distortion is achieved. This enables the LR18 to offer a fully intuitive linear response, with very high intelligibility and non-compressed identical tonal balance at any SPL.

The all-natural cylindrical wavefront of the purpose-designed RBN702rs 7" pro-ribbon transducer and the acoustically and electronically symmetrical component configuration bring a remarkable pattern control in both the vertical as well as the horizontal plane, without any distortion-inducing horn constructions.

The pro-ribbon's power handling of 1500W and RMS-to-peak ratio of 1:15, caters for a superb intelligibility and throw with maximum dynamic headroom reserve.

Philip 'Dr. Phil' de Haan, Alcons' head of R&D comments, "With the development of the LR18, we followed the design footsteps and system approach of the LR28, Alcons' large format line-array and the LR18's larger brother. We paid specific attention to the projection of the LR18; In the vertical (coupling) plane, th

PL+S: d&b audiotechnik debuts NoizCalc software

Tuesday, 15 March 2016

Germany - It's tried and trusted that a d&b audiotechnik loudspeaker system is more than the sum of its parts. So what's new at Prolight+Sound 2016?

d&b is introducing NoizCalc, a new software tool to predict the far field noise immission of open air events. Noise from outdoor entertainment events has become a serious topic, particularly as the number of events in populated urban environments increases. Gaining permission to stage an event frequently requires an official statement with a prediction of the noise impact on the surrounding areas.

NoizCalc is designed by d&b in collaboration with noise consulting and software development experts SoundPLAN GmbH, as the next tool in the d&b enabling technology portfolio. NoizCalc predicts sound propagation of multiple coherently emitting sources such as line arrays and subwoofer arrays. Using 3D terrain data the software accurately predicts the far field noise immission across the terrain according to ISO 9613-2 and Nord 2000 standards, allowing system designers to predict any potential noise issues during the event planning stage.

Sabina Berloffa, chief marketing officer at d&b commented, "Visitors to this year's stand will see more clearly than ever how d&b is meeting the needs of customers, engineers and markets. NoizCalc is a straightforward solution for sound system designers who are now able to investigate ho

PL+S: Chauvet Professional unleashes Maverick

Wednesday, 9 March 2016

Germany - Chauvet Professional is unleashing Maverick, a power-packed series of tour ready moving fixtures at Prolight+Sound (Hall 4 Stand G45). Featuring the MK2 Wash, MK1 Hybrid and MK2 Spot (with more fixtures to come), the new series serves up an arsenal of performance features intended to shatter budget barriers, free the imagination and set a new standard in their price category, says the company.

"We set out to make a statement with Maverick: that powerful full-featured tour-grade fixtures can be offered at an affordable price," said Albert Chauvet, president and founder of Chauvet. "Maverick builds on the trail we blazed with our Rogue Series. Like Rogue, it sets a new standard for performance in its class. Between Maverick and Rogue, we are offering a creative tool chest that fits nicely within any budget."

PL+S: Frankfurt launch for Funktion-One Vero system

Wednesday, 2 March 2016

UK / Germany - Following six years of development, British loudspeaker manufacturer, Funktion-One, has chosen Prolight+Sound Frankfurt for the launch of Vero - a new, large format touring sound system. The company will also debut the Evo 7T Touring loudspeaker and F132 bass enclosure at the show.

The impetus for Vero germinated from frustration with the declining standard of audio quality in the live environment, coupled with an understanding that the industry's ergonomic expectations demand a system that can be flown quickly and easily, and with minimal crew. In answer to this, says the company, Tony Andrews, John Newsham and the Funktion-One team have designed a system that is conveniently arrayable and boasts a new level of performance characteristics relating to sound quality, efficiency and directivity.

Vero is a complete system, with each element specified or designed for the highest possible performance. The system includes speakers, amplifiers, cabling, rigging, transport dollies, weatherproof covers and software.

The Vero speaker range features six highly efficient, low distortion horn-loaded loudspeakers - the V60 mid-high, V90 mid-high and V315 mid-bass with a choice of V221, V124 or V132 bass. The V60s, V90s and V315s all have identical dimensions, enabling them to be flown in the same vertical array. The ground stacked V221, V124 or V132 bass enc

Improvements in the omni-directional antenna have provided increased performance in more challenging environments such as high concentrations of truss or wall. We want our customers to have the opportunity to see it in action and understand just how simple it is to operate and Prolight+Sound is the perfect opportunity for that."

The upgrade to the BroadWeigh wireless system was launched in the last quarter of 2015 and feedback has been positive. Jonathan said, "We've been getting nothing but good reviews since we launched the system at PLASA, but Prolight+Sound puts us in front of a very different audience and we're keen to hear from both existing and potential cu
