d&b audiotechnik Choices at Truman's Brewery
It was choices that characterised the d&b audiotechnik approach to ABTT 2012 at the Truman Brewery. The new venue saw focus fall firmly on the smaller end of the d&b loudspeaker range; pride of place going to the estimable pair of teenyweeny performers, the E4 and E5, while from the installation tailored White range came the similarly sized 4S and 5S.
The E4 and E5 are new additions to the E-Series. Launched in February these miniature light weight 2-way passive coaxial loudspeakers offer a wide 100° symmetrical dispersion pattern in the horizontal and vertical plane, while the cabinet may be mounted in either attitude. Both E4 and E5 are intended for speech and music reinforcement in theatres, conferences, industrial presentations and broadcast studios, together with their application as surround sound, delay or fill systems. Entirely capable of being used stand-alone or supplemented by different subwoofers from the E-Series, the E4 and E5 loudspeaker cabinets and most accessories are also available with the Special Colour (SC) option, whilst the cabinets are weather protected as standard.
Visitors were also treated to the new V-Series, a midsized line array system already gaining wide acceptance. The V8 and V12 loudspeakers project 80 and 120° horizontal dispersion respectively from their efficient 3-way passive design whilst the dedicated V-SUB incorporates d&b patented passive cardioid technology.
The seminar 'Can you hear me at the back?', presented by Oran Burns is just one of the many educational sessions d&b likes to deploy at such events. Witty in delivery, they never the less deliver serious knowledge to the willing adherent. Those wishing to explore further the scope of the d&b educational program, sessions on electroacoustics, remote networking, and line arrays, to name just three, can find further information at www.dbaudio.com/en/education/
"We always feel at home coming to ABTT," remarked Phill Coe, market manager for d&b GB, "the new venue gave an added sense of drama. The seminar presentation by Oran was well attended, as was the stand; Black and White attracted equal interest and it was good to note visitors engaging with the subtle differences between the two."
Footnote: The V-Series won Sound Product of the Year for d&b.
