MARCOUSSIS, FRANCE--L-ACOUSTICS is pleased to announce the launch of its KARA/SB18 Pilot Program, having unveiled the concept at Prolight + Sound 2010 in Frankfurt.
The KARA/SB18 Pilot Program will primarily involve existing members of the L-ACOUSTICS Rental Network – in particular, dV-DOSC owners interested in advanced field testing of the new system for corporate and special events through to concert applications.
The initial companies taking part in the scheme are UK-based rental companies SFL and Plus 4 Audio, French events specialist Impact Evénement, Wilhelm & Willhalm from Germany, and global services provider PRG, all of which are located near L-ACOUSTICS headquarters and offices to facilitate close collaboration with the R&D team and technical support. Emphasis will be put on preset validation, system configuration and design, rigging, and general system set-up and operation.
“We are pleased with the overwhelmingly positive responses we have had since proposing this scheme at Frankfurt, especially from our existing dV-DOSC users,” says L-ACOUSTICS Marketing Director Stéphane Ecalle. “With a design inspired by our new K1 stadium system, KARA delivers a considerable number of improvements over its predecessor: added LF resources for increased bandwidth and coherence, improved directivity control in the horizontal plane, vertical inter-element variation up to 10 degrees, and improved ergonomics thanks to an integrated rigging system and lighter weight.”
The KARA/SB18 Pilot Program is expected to run throughout the summer in preparation for KARA’s official launch, scheduled for September.
