L-Acoustics’ SOUNDVISION is an acoustical simulation program designed for the installation of the company’s Wavefront Sculpture Technology® (V-DOSC®, dV-DOSC® and ARCS®) and Coaxial Point Source Technology (XT and MTD) loudspeakers.

The company’s first 3-D sound design program is capable of operating in real time. Designed with a convenient, intuitive graphical user interface, SOUNDVISION allows for the calculation of sound pressure levels (SPL) and coverage mapping for complex sound system or venue configurations.

Room geometry and loudspeaker locations are defined in 3-D, and simplified operating modes permit the user to work in 2-D to rapidly enter data. According to user preference, either horizontal (plan) or vertical (cut) views can be selected to enter room coordinates or to define loudspeaker placement/aiming. SPL and coverage mapping are then based on direct sound calculations over the defined audience geometry where each loudspeaker model is calibrated based on a reference user preset.

Designed for Windows XP/2000/Me/98SE, SOUNDVISION features a user-friendly interface with multiple toolboxes that allow for convenient entry of room and loudspeaker data while at the same time displaying coverage or mapping results along with 2D Cutview, Target and Source Cutview information; all toolboxes can be displayed simultaneously.

Using sophisticated modeling algorithms, SOUNDVISION offers several levels of technical support for users of its products. Due to its speed and ease-of-use, Coverage mode is suited to the needs of touring sound engineers and touring sound companies. More detailed information is available in Mapping mode, providing a tool for the audio consultant or sound designer. For the installer, the physical properties provided in Mechanical Data mode provide useful practical information for fixed installation applications.
