A total of 48 DSP and Class D power amplifier channels are distributed on three loudspeaker routes in a coaxial arrangement. Each VIDA L module is equipped with six 6.5” woofer chassis, twelve 3.5” mid-range drivers and thirty-two 1” dome tweeters. For the beam steering typical artefacts of up to 10kHz are avoided in combination with the special waveguide system.
Through active allocation of the frequency spectrum to each optimised woofer, mid-range and tweeter chassis, dynamic playback of up to 60Hz can be achieved. In this way, the VIDA L meets all the requirements of a full range system. If required, the optional VIDA C module that can be mounted on the back of the VIDA L can further extend the low frequency range or, alternatively, can optimise the system’s low frequency radiation in cardioid mode. An auxiliary DSP output is available for the expansion of subwoofers.
VIDA L offers all common input variants such as DANTE, AES3 and analogue. In case of a fault the two stage fallback concept switches to a substitute signal. All loudspeakers within an array are connected to each other via an Ethernet cable and are automatically recognised and grouped in the software.
The high-quality and subtly hidden connection mechanics of the VIDA L, which has been kept lean, can be used easily and safely. Using the optional flying frame, individual and coupled elements can be vertically flown or mechanically tilted forward. The inclination of the system is thereby recognised via the integrated goniometer and is fed into the calculation of the beam steering algorithm. All calculations and adjustments are made in real time.
