Washington Professional Systems (WPS) has installed the first two Lake Contour™ Pro26D digital loudspeaker processors at the USAF Museum at Wright-Patterson AFB in Dayton, OH. The new Lake Contour Pro26D incorporates a stereo AES/EBU digital input and output as standard.

By maintaining a fully digital audio signal path all the way to the speaker processing stage, this latest Lake Contour model claims to offer improved overall audio system quality through the elimination of an unnecessary D-A/A-D conversion stage at the console, which can otherwise color the sound.

The two digital Lake Contour Pro26D units at the USAF Museum each operate in 4-way linear phase crossover mode, are integrated with a Yamaha PM1D console and a flown JBL Vertec system that covers an audience area of over 50,000 square feet in the large hanger, one of three at the museum. A Lake Contour is also installed on a supplementary small event system that incorporates smaller JBL Vertec speakers.

The two input, six output Lake Contour and new Lake Contour Pro26D incorporate a set of DSP-based equalization and processing tools, including crossovers, dynamics and delays, that allow the optimization of performance sound speaker systems.

Lake Technology recently announced a series of new enhancements for the Lake Contour digital loudspeaker processor in the release of Contour Controller version 2.1 software. New features include full integration with the new Lake SmaartLive™ Controller software, which is also now shipping and available as a 30-day, fully functional demo at
