BERLIN, DE--Tannoy, QSC, Bouyer, Bosch, Electro-Voice, Dynacord and SoundTube Entertainment have licensed EASE Address software from Ahnert Feistel Media Group (AFMG) for the design and optimization of ceiling speaker installations and other distributed systems. "We are happy that these leading brands have adopted EASE Address as their primary tool for designing ceiling systems," says Stefan Feistel of AFMG. "We have spent many programming hours making EASE Address the most accurate program for both system designers and R&D engineers. Our GLL data format makes it easy to add new loudspeakers and update existing products without writing a single line of code."
EASE Address models the direct sound output of distributed systems in two dimensions, using the acoustical calculation engine behind EASE (Enhanced Acoustic Simulator for Engineers) 4.2, the industry standard for sound reinforcement modeling. The program is available as a free download at www.EaseAddress.com and from licensees. Loudspeaker data in AFMG's GLL data format is available direct from the licensees.
"We, like many others, have in the past made available 'wizards' that aid the design of very simple distributed ceiling systems," Graham Hendry, director of Business Development for Tannoy, says. "EASE Address now gives designers the ability to quickly lay out more complex room designs and to present data to the client in a very professional manner. They can have the confidence that they are using exactly the same data that is used in the full blown EASE programme, so there will be complete consistency when more resolute acoustical evaluations are required."
