DD12 MAKES IT THREE AWARDS IN A ROW
Having already won Sound & Video Contractor Best of Show at InfoComm14, then Sound & Video Contractor 2014 Innovative Product Award, we've now picked up the ProSoundWeb Readers Choice Product Award 2015 for Best Portable PA.
The multi-purpose DD12 defines the ultimate in performance and versatility for powered, two-way loudspeaker systems. It combines onboard networking, DSP and Class D amplification with state-of-the-art transducers and Differential Dispersion™ horn technology to achieve best-in-class performance in terms of fidelity, output capability and coverage consistency across the audience.
Differential Dispersion technology delivers more consistent audience coverage than systems with conventional X° x Y° horns - providing more throw to the rear to distribute sound evenly front-to-back, while having wider close-up horizontal coverage for the front rows.
Versatility is a key attribute of the DD12. The system is designed to meet a multitude of premium stand-alone and distributed sound reinforcement requirements - from touring, theatre and portable live sound applications to concert hall and HoW installations, AV events and stage monitor use. Ideal as the main PA in small-to-medium size rooms, it can also be used as an infill loudspeaker in large-scale systems.
Whether configured as an element in a stand-alone DD12 system or part of a larger MLA/MLA Compact system, individual DD12's can be controlled and monitored from a laptop or wireless tablet PC via intuitive VU-NET proprietary software. PC connection can be made directly via USB, or via Martin Audio's proprietary U-NET network and Merlin loudspeaker and network management system.
An important feature of the DD12 is its internal memory, which allows factory 'plug-and-play' or user-generated DSP preset 'snapshots' to be recalled by means of a preset selector button on the rear panel, instead of using computer control.
In addition, comprehensive accessories support a wide variety of mounting options – including surface, ceiling and pole mount. The DD12's universal bracket facilitates a wide range of down-tilt and up-tilt angles in both portrait and landscape orientation, and can be mounted directly onto the pole of a speaker stand or attached to a scaffold clamp.
Commenting on the latest award, Director of U.S. Operations Rob Hofkamp said, 'We are thrilled that DD12 continues to attract critical acclaim and we look forward to its long term success in the marketplace'.
