DBX ANNOUNCES DANTE AND BLU LINK COMPATIBLE DRIVERACKS
dbx is showcasing expanded offerings for its DriveRack VENU360 Loudspeaker Management System at NAMM 2016, with versions that now feature Dante (VENU360D) and BLU link (VENU360B) enablement. The new units open the VENU360 to a whole new world of live and installed sound systems, including networked systems that want to add a stage or a room to an existing design. The updated DriveRacks feature advancements in dbx’s proprietary AutoEQ and AFS algorithms, additional input channels, Ethernet control via an Android, iOS, Mac, or Windows device, and updated wizards.
“We’re very excited to expand our best-selling DriveRack family with the addition of the VENU360B BLU link and VENU360D Dante versions,” said Noel Larson, Director of Marketing, Signal Processing, at Harman Professional. “The VENU360 has been a tremendous success and almost immediately we had requests for BLU link and Dante enabled versions of the product. We are proud to introduce the next level of DriveRack.”
With an RTA Mic ‘listening’ to the room, the updated DriveRack VENU360 AutoEQ algorithm sets speaker levels and room EQ automatically in a matter of seconds using sine sweeps. This means room adjustments can now be made very quickly, without subjecting an audience to lengthy broadcasts of pink noise.
And of course, nothing turns audiences away like annoying and potentially painful audio feedback. To counter this, dbx engineers have improved their already-stellar Advanced Feedback Suppression algorithm. The DriveRack VENU360 ‘listens’ for and anticipates feedback and automatically removes it before it even has a chance, while never altering your sound.
