L-Acoustics KARA

L-Acoustics in Marcoussis, France, has launched its KARA/SB18 Pilot Program, which will primarily involve existing members of the L-Acoustics Rental Network, particularly dV-DOSC owners interested in advanced field testing of the new system for corporate and special events through to concert applications.

The initial companies taking part are UK-based rental companies SFL and Plus 4 Audio, French events specialist Impact Evenement, Wilhelm & Willhalm from Germany, and global services provider PRG—all of which are located near L-Acoustics' headquarters and offices to facilitate close collaboration with the company's R&D team and technical support. Emphasis will be put on preset validation, system configuration and design, rigging, and general system setup and operation.

“We are pleased with the overwhelmingly positive responses we have had since proposing this scheme at Frankfurt, especially from our existing dV-DOSC users,” says L-Acoustics Marketing Director Stéphane Ecalle. “With a design inspired by our new K1 stadium system, KARA delivers a considerable number of improvements over its predecessor: added LF resources for increased bandwidth and coherence, improved directivity control in the horizontal plane, vertical inter-element variation up to 10 degrees, and improved ergonomics thanks to an integrated rigging system and lighter weight.”

The KARA/SB18 Pilot Program is expected to run throughout the summer in preparation for KARA’s official launch, which L-Acoustics says is scheduled for September.
