PL+S 2018: d&b continues to shape sound with the launch of GSL

After a successful start to 2018, d&b is heading to Prolight + Sound. The show is a major event in the d&b calendar, not only because it takes place on home territory in Frankfurt, Germany, but also because it is a fantastic opportunity to introduce the SL-Series, GSL System, the second major product release in 2018.

The d&b GSL is the next generation line array in the d&b series; sitting above the iconic J, Y and V-Series, GSL delivers unparalleled dispersion control, setting a new standard for output and accuracy in large-format line arrays for the world’s largest sound reinforcement applications. This applied evolution is the next step in d&b’s 30 year obsession to deliver precise pattern control, effortlessly elevating the listening experience for the audience. It also revolutionizes the creative environment for System Engineers and Mixers by rejecting energy to the rear, and significantly reducing excitation of the reverberant field.

As well as a focus on the official release of GSL, there will be further opportunities for attendees to experience the newly released d&b Soundscape at daily demo sessions. Introduced in February, Soundscape, powered by the DS100 Signal Engine, opens up a world of creativity for sound designers, artists and audiences, enabling object-based mixing and sophisticated room emulation. The demos will run from 10 to 13 April at Messe Frankfurt in the Panorama Hall, where guests will preview the d&b Soundscape, and hear about the evolution in loudspeaker system design: from mono to stereo to Soundscape.

Alongside the two new d&b releases, guests will find the full d&b product range in the Sound + Audio Hall 3.1, stand C41, including all loudspeaker series E,T, J, Y and V-Series, as well as xS, xA and xC-Series. This is the perfect opportunity for attendees to have their questions answered by d&b co-workers, learn more about the products, and experience the d&b innovations in action.

David Claringbold, d&b Chief Marketing Officer, comments “Prolight + Sound brings together all strands of the industry under one roof and the d&b family certainly feels at home there. All of the d&b global Partners, Distributors and friends are warmly invited to share this moment with us.” Claringbold continues “We expect Prolight + Sound 2018 to be both the finale of a multi-year development phase and the kick-off for a perennial journey of these two outstanding audio innovations.”
