K-array has announced that it will launch a new software suite designed to complement the company’s hardware and enhance the user experience at the upcoming InfoComm 2023 show in Orlando at the Orange County Convention Center (booth #4981).
“As we expand our group of K-array brands, including K-array, KGEAR and KSCAPE, we want to offer a 360-degree solution for the control and design of systems,” explains Alessandro Tatini, CEO and president of K-array. “With the launch of our interconnected series of software, including mobile apps, offline designer tools and monitoring solutions, we aim to provide a complete ecosystem for system designers and end users.”
First, K-FRAMEWORK is an offline software designed for 3D simulation and amplifier configuration designed to enable advanced users to simulate room coverage and then configure the amplifiers associated with the desired loudspeakers.
Meanwhile, the K-CONNECT mobile app, available for iOS and Android devices, is designed to streamline the access procedure by allowing users to connect to any K-array amplifier hotspot with a scan of the QR code. The app also offers browsing and modification of settings with a simplified user interface.
On-site, more experienced practitioners can use the new K-array web app that provides the ability to do the general configuration of systems. For technical assistance during commissioning and for ongoing monitoring, K-array has also introduced K-MONITOR that provides efficient discovery tools.
K-array amplifiers are already equipped with a dedicated operating system (OsKar), and a third-party control API with plugins available for major control platforms, including Q-SYS and Crestron. The company is now going further by launching a dedicated developer platform to enable users to create apps to further extend the functionality of K-array amplifiers. The first service built on this platform allos users to add Dante audio networking channels on demand.
“We are thrilled to demonstrate our range of software solutions at InfoComm 2023,” concludes Matteo Barbaro, software product manager at K-array. “With our innovative hardware and user-friendly software offerings, we are confident that professionals in the audio industry will enjoy enhanced control, convenience, and expanded functionality across the K-array brand.”
