An update to AMFG EASE Focus 2 (v2.2) brings several new features to the platform that make it work easier and faster.

EASE Focus 2.2 now supports conventional “box-type” loudspeakers in a mixed project together with line arrays and digitally steered column loudspeakers.

A maximum of 16 sound sources can be combined into a complex system, opening up an wide range of applications—front-fills, side-fills, under-balcony systems, delay lines, etc. – in all possible combinations!

This new option should be especially beneficial to engineers and system technicians in the system rental business.

In addition, SPL and frequency response can be examined and compared across all audience areas and “virtual EQ” settings can be simulated.

The DLL concept allows manufacturers to provide all control options of their systems (including DSP settings) and users to pre-configure their setups to become turnkey solutions for a production.

Monitoring rigging loads and height limitations of a venue during simulation and the detailed reports generated by EASE Focus simplify on-site installation and configuration.

Mathieu Delquignies of French manufacturer APG explains the benefits of EASE Focus: “Coverage and SPL predictions are very close to reality. EASE Focus has proven not only to be an indispensable help for touring system techs but also a useful sales support tool.”

Gaetan Byk, marketing manager at Amadeus, France, adds, “It seemed vital to us to offer our customers such a powerful and above all free interface.”

Both companies provide EASE Focus data for their complete range of products.

Further manufacturers are currently supplying conventional loudspeaker data for Focus 2.2 such as LAX, RCF and Renkus-Heinz. And, manufacturers interested in supplying their data to the EASE Focus community are encouraged to contact AFMG directly at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
