InfoComm seminars explore AFMG software developments

AUTHOR: Inavate

This year’s InfoComm will host two seminars covering the Ahnert Feistel Media Group’s (AFMG’s) latest software updates.

On June 18, 2009, visitor’s to the Orlando show can discuss the new release of SysTune (Version 1.1) with Stefan Feistal from AFMG. The following day Feistal will once again offer his expertise, hosting a seminar on speech intelligibility prediction using the version 4.3 of EASE.

The new features in EASE 4.3, aimed at sound system designers, room acousticians and architects, will be discussed in the Friday seminar, along with aspects of speech intelligibility theory, measurement and modelling. It will focus on the various methods EASE 4.3 uses to predict STI in accordance with IEC 60268-16 – and their advantages and limitations.

The SysTune seminar on Thursday will be devoted to the v1.1 upgrade for EASERA SysTune, AFMG’s live sound measurement software.

The new version will provide a set of additions, including new DSP Plug-In functions supported by manufacturers such as Renkus-Heinz, Linea Research, Tannoy, Turbosound, FZ Audio, Electro-Voice, Salzbrenner StageTec, FourAudio and Harvey Audio. A new Virtual EQ function is one performance enhancements, along with improved handling of axis settings and default view limits and better results for music and speech signals. Impedance and distortion measurement functions, offline evaluation of recorded measurement data and more data processing options will be available in the new Pro version of SysTune, also introduced at InfoComm.

The upgrade follows the announcement at Pro Light+Sound 2009 that Salzbrenner Stagetec is to be the world’s first console manufacturer to host EASERA SysTune, making it available to AURUS customers as a seamless solution integrated into the mixing console’s work surface. Any corrections necessary can be made conveniently from the FOH position using the SysTune interface, acting on the integrated NEXUS audio network DSPs.

Feistel said: “We have designed these seminars to offer a very concise but detailed explanation of what customers can expect from SysTune 1.1, and how EASE 4.3 can be used to predict speech intelligibility in all situations from the simple to the most complex. Each seminar will provide a very valuable insight for all professionals who work with acoustics in either the installation or live sound environment.”

The SysTune seminar is free for anyone to attend. Those interested in the Ease seminar should visit the InfoComm Show website using the link below and register under the Manufacturer’s Seminars.
