Kling & Freitag at the InfoComm 2017
At the InfoComm in Orlando, Kling & Freitag Americas will attend for the first time to show wide range of modern product portfolio Kling & Freitag sound systems. In the Main focus is the VIDA line array with beam steering. VIDA stands for ‘versatile intelligent digital array’. The aim of the VIDA L development is to explore from the outset what is technically feasible and to implement this as a groundbreaking innovation.
A total of 48 DSP and Class D power amplifier channels are distributed on three loudspeaker routes in a coaxial arrangement. Each VIDA L module is equipped with six 6.5? woofer chassis, twelve 3.5? mid-range drivers and thirty-two 1? dome tweeters. For the beam steering, typical artefacts of up to 10 kHz are avoided in combination with the special waveguide system.
Through active allocation of the frequency spectrum to each optimised woofer, mid-range and tweeter chassis, dynamic playback of up to 60 Hz can be achieved. In this way, the VIDA L meets all the requirements of a full-range system. If required, the optional VIDA C module that can be mounted on the back of the VIDA L can further extend the low frequency range or, alternatively, can optimise the system’s low frequency radiation in cardioid mode. An auxiliary DSP output is available for the expansion of subwoofers.
VIDA L offers all common input variants such as DANTE, AES3 and analogue. In case of a fault the two stage fallback concept switches to a substitute signal. All loudspeakers within an array are connected to each other via an Ethernet cable and are automatically recognised and grouped in the software.
