Launched earlier this month, the V7P, V10P and V-GSUB will be the highlights of the d&b stand at PLASA 2015, as the units see their UK debut. Visitors to stand J50 will be able to see the new lineup alongside other products from their mobile and installation ranges, as well as on d&b sales Partner’s SSE/Wigwam stand, L10.
“PLASA London is a significant show for d&b this year,” says Gianni Abruzzese, d&b GB Commercial Manager. “We’re really pleased to be showing the V-Series point sources, which we think are pretty special. The design of the mid range horn means that the vocal performance is in a league of its own. I think the market has been waiting for a point source with this level of performance for a while now.”
Adam Hockley and Steve Jones of d&b GB Education and Application Support will be contributing to the line up of pro audio seminars, as part of the PLASA Professional Development Programme. To register for their sessions visit http://plasashow.com/seminars.aspx
On Monday 5th October at 10:30 Adam will present ‘Line arrays unraveled’, in which he explores line array directivity and examines some of the pros and cons of using this technology. The talk will clarify commonly misunderstood behaviour and look at techniques and tools to improve performance, including ArrayProcessing – the d&b line array optimization software.
In ‘Delighted audience. Happy neighbours‘ on Tuesday 6th at 14:30 Steve will discuss how sound propagates over distance and explore the methods and technologies that can reduce offsite spill, (noise) outside the audience area.
d&b is also proud to announce its official sponsorship of the 2015 Technical Theatre Award for Outstanding Achievement in Sound, and a nomination of the V-Series point source for a PLASA Award for Innovation.
About the V-Series point sources:
The V-Series point sources build on the 3-way passive design of the well known V-Series line array modules. The V7P and V10P both house two 10” drivers in a dipolar arrangement with a rear mounted 8” MF driver attached to a dual chamber horn. The exits from this horn design create another dipole around the centrally mounted single 1.4” exit compression driver with a constant directivity horn. This maximizes the performance to size ratio, by making almost the entire baffle board radiate.
V7P / V10P deliver 75° x 40° and 110° x 40° (h x v) dispersion characteristics respectively. All components are arranged symmetrically around the centre axis of the cabinet to produce a perfectly symmetrical dispersion pattern. Due to the dipolar arrangement of the LF drivers, broadband dispersion control is maintained down to approximately 350 Hz in the same plane as the dipole. The rotatable horn and wide range of rigging options make mounting in either orientation simple.
