Backnang, Germany (October 28, 2009)-German manufacturer d&b audiotechnik has developed its R1 remote software to create a central point of access to all functions within any d&b system. This access point could be at front of house, in the control room, or from any remote position around the venue, creating an opportunity to qualify and enhance the sound at that exact location.
According to the company, a system design can be created, its performance predicted with d&b ArrayCalc and the final system configuration applied either offline or onsite within R1 and then manipulated remotely. The whole menu of DSP control can be applied down to an individual d&b amplifier channel, groups of loudspeakers or the complete system. At the touch of a button, the system check device diagnostics reportedly enable detailed monitoring as and when required, before, during or after a show.
Within installation projects, system integrators can configure R1 remote control software to offer different levels of control, simplified functionality for daily use and more complex functionality when multiple applications of a room are required. In low-light indoor environments, a darker screen design can be used, or this can be switched to a brighter design for outdoor situations in daylight.
