BEAVERTON, Ore. — January 22, 2021 — Biamp® strengthens its commitment to streamlining system design and installation with the introduction of VenuePolar™, an exclusive EASE Focus plugin that automates loudspeaker system design for the Community™ IV6 Modular Vertical Array.
"With a nearly infinite number of possible configurations available when designing a modern line array, determining the optimal one is time-consuming and immensely challenging for even the most experienced system designers," said Joe Andrulis, Executive Vice President of Corporate Development, Biamp. "VenuePolar automates the process and removes this burden from system designers. VenuePolar quickly evaluates the nearly limitless options to find the one that best meets the designer’s objectives to give perfect audio in a fraction of the time, every time."
Part of Community’s I Series premium performance indoor/outdoor loudspeaker product line, the IV6 Modular Vertical Array is a scalable, flexible sound reinforcement system. IV6 offers two cabinet choices (5-degree or 15-degree vertical angle) and has 55 different response shaping filters within the Passive Acoustic Optimization (PAO) settings found on the rear of each cabinet. Biamp’s VenuePolar EASE Focus plugin simplifies the current workflow with automated features that eliminate the lengthy manual adjustment necessary to fine-tune the array. VenuePolar helps system designers quickly and easily determine the recommended cabinet quantity, model, frame angle, and splay angle for a venue layout and determine the PAO settings for each cabinet, reducing thousands of possible setting combinations to a single press of a button in the software. The plugin also includes a mechanical loads and safety factor calculator.
With VenuePolar, users can promote speed, efficiency, and accuracy while ensuring better uniform coverage and confidence that the audio design will satisfy customer expectations.
