Foothill Ranch, CA (April 9, 2008)–Renkus-Heinz has launched its EASERA SysTune measurement system. The system, first revealed last October at AES 2007 in New York, is a software-based measurement system that measures time domain and frequency domain simultaneously using live program material while an audience is present.
The launch was followed by the announcement by developers, Ahnert Feistel Media Group (AFMG), of five live-sound measurement and tuning seminars for sound engineers and other audio professionals in April and May 2008, in the U.S. and Europe, using EASERA SysTune as the primary measurement tool.
“EASERA SysTune is purpose-designed for real-time, live-sound applications,” said Stefan Feistel of AFMG. “It is a sophisticated yet simple-to-use software tool with novel, patent-pending features that are especially useful for system tuning and live sound measurements.”
Like previous source-independent measurement software, EASERA SysTune provides frequency displays for input spectrum and transfer function. But, according to the company, it also sets new benchmarks with real-time impulse response displays and analysis tools. Newly developed noise suppression and signal-gating algorithms allow EASERA SysTune to acquire a room impulse response in five to 10 seconds using live program material as the test stimulus.
Audio professionals can examine reverberation times and speech intelligibility in occupied venues using just a reference signal, a measuring microphone and EASERA SysTune. EASERA SysTune also has the ability to process up to eight input channels simultaneously and present spatially averaged spectrum and transfer function displays to the user.
