Frankfurt, Germany (April 14, 2017)—d&b audiotechnik has updated its R1 Remote control software with a new feature: Array verification, which was created to help avoid cabling mistakes in both mobile and permanent loudspeaker applications.
According to d&b, the procedure automatically identifies the physical position of a loudspeaker in an array, allowing it to be compared to the setup in the d&b ArrayCalc simulation software. The feature not only confirms that loudspeakers are cabled and working correctly, but that each amplifier channel goes into the right loudspeaker in the array. For users, it means cabling issues can be easily identified for both line and subwoofer arrays.
Array verification is accessible from the System check view in R1, which has been renamed ‘System check and Array verification’.
Meanwhile, for users on the go, the ArrayCalc Viewer app has been designed specifically for viewing ArrayCalc project information on tablets and smartphones, providing all key data for positioning and flying a d&b loudspeaker system. Once the system has been designed, calculated and optimized in ArrayCalc, the dbac2 file can be shared via email, AirDrop, or downloaded onto any iOS or Android device. For users, the new app means any changes can be shared instantly, with no more need for paper print-outs.
ArrayCalc Viewer will be available free of charge on both Google’s Play Store and Apple’s App Store on April 4 2017.
