Display is the numerical optimisation process that eliminates lengthy trial-and-error tuning sessions, so that an MLA system achieves the required audience coverage straight out of the box.  Based on highly accurate acoustic models of array behaviour, Display gives a precise prediction of the direct sound produced over the audience as well as areas where sound is to be minimised. It takes the guesswork out of array design, deployment and control ─ generating ready-to-use DSP filter configurations and comprehensive rigging information.

Increased Accuracy.  • Acoustic data has been re-measured using more advanced techniques and re-calibrated to deliver the most accurate prediction and optimisation software on the market.  • Hard avoid feature is optimised more effectively for varying distances from the array, while the introduction of a leakage threshold limits the effort of reducing output below a certain level.  Improved Sonic Consistency.  • Elemental EQ is now full-band for all MLA systems making them better sounding than ever before. • MLA family arrays exhibit close to flat average audience response making Input EQ between them even more complimentary.  Faster Splay Optimisations. • On average splay optimisation takes 30% less time than Display 2.1 • A new Express Setup tool is also available when simple day-to-day arrays and default Display settings are applicable.  Enhanced Usability.  • Generate printable rigging reports for all types of system. • More room for the audience and goal value graphs in EQ tab. • Easier access to the most recent files. • New option for reference level or average audience level static plot. • Auto-scale frequency response plot in SPL View.  Richer Graphics.  •A new Matlab graphics system is used throughout, with plots and axes looking richer and smooth.
