Flag Systems has installed a JBL Vertech line array system using the new V5 DSP presets at the Hollywood Palladium. 

Flag Systems has installed a JBL Vertech line array system using the new V5 DSP presets at the Hollywood Palladium. 

The Pilot Program for the new VerTec V5 DSP presets—software plug-in upgrades for VerTec VT4889, VT4888, VT4880 and VT4880A models that use OMNIDRIVEHD linear-phase FIR-processing capability found in Crown I-Tech HD Series power amplifiers and JBL DrivePack DPDA input modules—is underway.

The VerTec V5 DSP presets offer improvements in horizontal coverage thanks to the use of higher-order, asymmetric filters and improved sound quality via phase linearization. The presets also feature improved system response to equalization, better far-field summation and throw, and improved inter-array interaction/summation and stereo imaging.

As part of the VerTec V5 Pilot Program, upcoming VerTec V5 releases will progressively add support for additional VerTec models including VT4887A, VT4887, VT4886 and VT4881A, VT4882 and VT4883 subwoofers, along with presets for cardioid subwoofer configurations. The V5 presets will eventually be incorporated into the new JBL HiQnet Performance Manager sound reinforcement system configuration and control software.

The new V5 DSP presets are currently being employed in a sound system upgrade at the Gibson Amphitheater in Los Angeles, where Sound Image of Escondido, Calif., has installed VerTec VT4889 full-sized line array elements as the main P.A. system and VT4888 mid-sized line array elements as outfill arrays, with the entire system powered by Crown I-Tech HD amplification running V5. In addition, Flag Systems of Santa Ana, Calif., has installed five VT4888 loudspeakers as the center cluster at the Hollywood Palladium to supplement a house system comprising 24 VT4889 loudspeakers (four arrays of six loudspeakers each).
