StepArray column loudspeakers enjoy the benefits of the two main current technologies for directivity control by implementing a hybrid principle patented by Active Audio: DGRC digital and geometric radiation control.
Public address systems are primarily intended to deliver a clear and intelligible message to the audience. But a venue’s acoustic conditions may affect transmission quality, especially in case of significant reverberation and/or background noise. To overcome the adverse effects of reverberation, loudspeakers with accurate directivity control must be used, so that they project the sound straight to the audience instead of increasing reverberation.
StepArray+ combines all of the advantages of the patented DGRC technology with the power of Dante™ in a range of self-powered beam-steerable column speakers. With models ranging from 1.50m to 4.50m, the new StepArray+ delivers great performance and high intelligibility levels in a cost-effective package. The Digital and Geometric Radiation Control technology allows for less DSP and amplification channels to be used in a column, thus bringing down the final cost of an installation, while retaining the highest level of performance.
Ray-On+® is the active version of the Ray-On® column loudspeakers with Dante™ on-board. Acoustically, they combine the patented DGRC principle that has made the success of Active Audio’s column loudspeakers, with an onboard DSP to equalize the speakers and an integrated amplifier.
The Ray-On+® range includes three active column loudspeakers in 80 cm, 120 cm and 230 cm based on the patented DGRC technology. The fine mesh grill gives the sleek and sophisticated speakers an even texture and color, meaning that they blend seamlessly into the chosen environment.
