Ontario, Canada (January 8, 2015)—Adamson Systems Engineering has released Blueprint AV, a predictive software suite for use designing systems with the company’s various loudspeaker ranges.
Expanding on Adamson’s long-running Shooter software, the multi-use predictive software suite operates both in the 2D and 3D realms, and is intended to help system designers and technicians build a simple or complex listening area, hang multiple arrays, simulate response with a variety of acoustic predictive tools, and develop an accurate rigging plot that can be exported to DXF files for transfer to the rigging team.
Users can choose the 2D mode to more quickly determine optimal splay settings for their arrays within their space, or opt for the more extensive 3D mode, which uses polygonal shapes to build complex spaces. The software also provides various simulation options.
Multiple simulation options exist, including SPL measurements, which can be measured using standard and proprietary weighting curves, as well as standard 1/3 octave frequencies or a full range average. Delay, directivity and virtual microphone responses can also be calculated. A vertical SPL option allows the user to see an array’s vertical SPL response, measuring the initial coverage, to the amount of coverage delivered to the extreme back of the intended listening area.
After extensive beta testing with key network partners, Adamson is releasing Blueprint AV via a licensing system that will allow end users to distribute a pre-determined number of copies to their team of technicians.
The software comes pre-loaded with acoustic data from Adamson’s complete line array product range, with plans to add all point source products in the near future.
