    The first Diffrazioni Multimedia Festival recently took place at Bardini Museum in Firenze, Italy, with a key interactive installation supported by DEVA, a technology created by Powersoft. Conceived as a metaphor for life, Alfonso Belfiore’s ‘SPAWN make the game’ used DEVA equipment scattered throughout the park, spreading music and taking pictures while communicating with each other. Six solar powered DEVAs were placed in the garden of the Bardini Museum, playing audio files and detecting the movement of visitors, while taking… View this post

    Electromagnetic interference, often referred to as EMI, is a degradation of the performance of a piece of equipment or system caused by electromagnetic radiation. Electromagnetic radiation is the travel of alternating electric and magnetic fields through space at 186,273 miles (about a billion feet) per second, or the speed of light. A wavelength, as shown in Figure 1 below, is the physical distance traveled by a wave during one cycle. When the equipment or system is closer than about a… View this post

    Before beginning the design process for a business sound system, identify what the customer needs and expects: Fidelity Expectations. Does the client want a good, basic system; something a little better than average; or maximum bandwidth and maximum fidelity? Sound-Level Requirements. Will the system be used strictly for background music, or does it really need to rock? Usage. What kind of music will be played through it? For example, if it’s urban funk, then you’re going to have to think… View this post

      The crest factor of an audio signal is the dB difference between the peaks and the RMS value of the signal. The RMS (Root Mean Square) is defined as the “heating value” of the signal - the voltage that would generate the same heat as a DC (Direct Current) signal, over the same time. The RMS value of a complex signal must be read with an RMS voltmeter. Alternatively, the signal can be digitally sampled and the samples summed… View this post
