Chester, PA (June 23, 2011)–Community Professional Loudspeakers has introduced its Forecaster HD ceiling-distributed system design software.
The software is a graphical engineering tool for calculating loudspeaker layout and density in ceiling distributed systems.
Forecaster HD helps systems designers select the models and quantities of Community ceiling loudspeakers for a range of ceiling-distributed applications based on user input of room dimensions and listening height. The program is designed to compensate for sloped ceilings and seating areas, and individual loudspeakers can be moved to avoid physical barriers in a room. Forecaster HD system designs can be saved, recalled and shared.
According to the company, users can compare the results of using different loudspeaker models, and different density and layout patterns to achieve the desired performance and coverage goals. Forecaster HD also provides high-resolution screen shots of loudspeaker system layouts, SPL mapping and dimensional information, which can be exported for client presentations or project team reference.
Forecaster HD is available in Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 versions, and may be downloaded free of charge from Community’s website.
