KONTROL

KONTROL

Kontrol™ is a loudspeaker management application that equips sound engineers with powerful tools that allows remote control of the vertical and horizontal directivity of a flown Trinity array as well as access to key DSP parameters and real-time monitoring during operation. With Kontrol™, set up times are reduced with the ability to make precise adjustments quickly and easily without the requirement of additional personne while providing a new set of tools for sound engineers.

Real-time Remote Control

Once the modules are flown users can make significant remote sound field adjustments with the click of a button. Sound engineers can now adjust the direction of every module from front of house, increasing sensitivity for longer throw applications, narrowing the sound field to avoid reflective boundaries, precisely focusing the array into the audience and reducing spill into adjacent areas. Kontrol™ interfaces with electronic actuators built into each module that allow inter-module and wave guide angles to be remotely controlled. The software performs calculations to ensure movement of the array is within safety parameters while providing real-time feedback during movement as well as when it has completed movement.

Automatic Array Detection

By using inter-module communication, Kontrol™ automatically detects, arranges and configures the line array with all modules represented in the correct order within the engineer’s virtual work space. Once activated an engineer can quickly move on to aiming, tuning and optimizing the sound system with total confidence that their work will be reflected accurately in the real world environment.

DSP Control & System Monitoring

Kontrol™ provides access to key DSP functionality as well as allowing monitoring of the system during operation. The intuitive GUI makes it simple to detect when any of these features have been changed from their factory defaults. Unobtrusive but distinctive notifications will allow the sound engineer to glance at their work space and have confidence that their system is configured as intended.

Service Notes

To ensure simple and seamless communication between engineers and shop technicians, Kontrol™ allows users to set service flags for any module from a user interface where notes may be created and stored within the module. The service notes provide seamless communication between the field and service teams, ensuring modules are properly maintained, thus saving critical downtime.

Audio Compensation Filters

Trinity features two sets of audio presets designed to compensate for different projection distances and array lengths. The High Frequency Compensation (HFC) filters are used to compensate for the effects of high frequency attenuation over long distances – these are configured to be used at distances of 75 and 100 meters. The Low Frequency Compensation (LFC) filters are used to smooth the low-end coupling that occurs when multiple cabinets are arrayed together. These simple to use features allow effective control to ensure every person in the audience receives consistent transparent sound quality.
