Europe - Yamaha has announced an upcoming upgrade to its iActive Field Control (AFC) acoustic enhancement system.
AFC4, the fourth-generation system, features upgrades in DSP processing and hardware. Yamaha says that when combined with optimally placed microphones and loudspeakers, AFC4 operators can enhance or create any acoustic environment, even in an outdoor or roofless venue.
“By combining our collective knowledge in these areas to develop the new AFC4 system, it is possible to create incredibly natural and immersive acoustic experiences for both audiences and performers,” comments Joe Rimstidt, systems design engineer at Yamaha’s Professional Audio division. “We look forward to the exciting possibilities that the future holds for the AFC4 acoustic enhancement system.”
First released in 1985, Active Field Control was developed in response to the growing number of facilities adopting a multi-purpose use strategy and designed to help venue operators broaden the types of acoustic performance configurations that they could offer. Providing a flexible alternative to more expensive and time-consuming physical renovations, AFC allowed venue operators to quickly configure different acoustic characteristics for a space, without compromising its original sonic performance.
