db-stand-prolight--sound-2019The busy d&b stand at Frankfurt
Germany - Prolight + Sound in Frankfurt was filled with innovations and exciting experiences at the d&b stand and demo room this year. Featured on the stand was the d&b SL Series - GSL and KSL Systems, the d&b Soundscape, and new ‘little wonder’, the B8-SUB/Bi8-SUB, as well as the d&b enabling technologies, proving it’s not just the big things that matter.
Visitors to the d&b booth had the opportunity to see the small B8-SUB/ Bi8-SUB for the first time. At a mere 170mm tall the subwoofer’s low profile belies an exceptionally high performance to size ratio. It’s a suitable fit for tight spaces, be they fixed installation or mobile production environments, reproducing frequencies from 43 Hz to 170 Hz.
In the d&b Soundscape demo room there was a real buzz with some very special guests; renowned theatre designer Sebastian Frost, Grammy award winning artist and engineer Imogen Heap, and Serge Gräfe, sound engineer and designer for Kraftwerk, all offering unique insights into their experiences with the d&b Soundscape in the My Soundscape sessions.
The daily Art and Engineering with the d&b Soundscape sessions also proved to be popular amongst guests eager to hear artists, sound designers and FoH mixers discuss their working experience with the d&b Soundscape.
Prolight + Sound also offered visitors the chance to learn more about the Milan protocol and DS20 audio network bridge, the first d&b Milan enabled product, and the new d&b ArrayCalc Exchange SketchUp plugin which could be found at the d&b stand, designed to enable users to generate an ArrayCalc compatible venue file (*.dbacv) and load it into ArrayCalc.
“This year’s Prolight + Sound saw the continuation of the d&b journey with its outstanding innovations, including the B8-SUB.” says David Claringbold, chief marketing officer at d&b, “The show has been a fantastic opportunity to share the d&b storyengage with new customers and strengthen existing relationships.”
