Rational Acoustics has announced that future versions of Smaart v8 and Di v2 software will add support for 10EaZy hardware as well as incorporate core features from 10EaZy SPL measurement software directly into the Smaart user interface.
Merging the measurement environment offered by Smaart with the turnkey SPL monitoring of 10EaZy will bring added functionality, efficiency and accuracy to both products.
Beginning with the release of Smaart v8.2 in May of 2017, connecting 10EaZy hardware to a computer running Smaart, either Mac or PC, will automatically enable a set of key elements from 10EaZy within the Smaart user interface.
Specifically it will provide Smaart users access to features like 10EaZy’s “Maximum Average Manager” (MAM) function and also means that Smaart will be able to provide certified, class-compliant SPL measurements when used with 10EaZy’s Class 1 or Class 2 hardware.
For 10EaZy users, it means that their hardware can now be used on the Mac platform through Smaart. The new integration also supports measuring SPL from multiple 10EaZy units simultaneously.
Karen Anderson, COO of Rational Acoustics, explains: “We’ve watched over the past several years as 10EaZy has claimed its placed in the industry as the standard for accurate, reliable, easy-to-use SPL monitoring and management. As we focused on the expansion & enhancement of Smaart’s overall SPL functionality it became an obvious choice for us to partner with 10Eazy to integrate their tried and tested features and class-compliant hardware solutions into Smaart.”
10EaZy Founder Jacob Navne adds, “While 10EaZy primarily serves fixed installation venues like night clubs, music venues or amusement parks, we appreciate that a significant number of our users are on the road setting up sound systems all day long. We’ve been asked multiple times for more in-depth analysis features in 10EaZy, but we believe that the standard for such a tool has long since been established by Rational Acoustics and there is no need to reinvent the wheel. This release adds tremendous benefits to customers of both products”.
Rational Acoustics will be showing a preview of Smaart v8.2, including the 10EaZy integration, at the upcoming Prolight + Sound show in Frankfurt, on April 4-7, 2017 — Hall 3.1, Booth A30. 10EaZy is located on the same booth.
Discounted bundles of Smaart software plus 10EaZy systems will be available within the U.S. via the Rational Acoustics online store upon the release of Smaart v8.2. 10Eazy Class 1, Class 2 and RT systems can still be purchased separately and 10EaZy software will still be included with the purchase of any 10EaZy system.
