L-ACOUSTICS Rental Network logo

L-ACOUSTICS in Marcoussis, France, introduces the Rental Network, an international platform to serve the community of Line Source Array owners. The new Network replaces the V-DOSC Partnership, which has been in existence since 1993.

The new L-ACOUSTICS Rental Network is launched against a backdrop of constantly developing technology, and offers its agents a unique opportunity to pool quality values as well as human and technical resources, and to benefit from Network synergies.

The Rental Network is summarized in the Network Charter, based on three working principles: the assurance of worldwide systems availability with inventory thresholds for various rental segments; the establishment of a new "K" universal standard to ensure performance and compatibility of systems; and the guarantee of qualified technicians to ensure standards of excellence through education.

In launching the Rental Network, L-ACOUSTICS has simplified the previous conditions of agreement for rental agents. One way it has tackled this is to organize the community into tiers according to market segments and specific needs.

The new Rental Network affords its agents a number of benefits, including international rental guidelines, advanced technical support and exposure of Rental Network activities by means of regular communication and inclusion in the official Network Directory.

Entry into the Rental Network starts with a preliminary audit to ensure that the prospective agent's financial goals and technical and human resources match the Network Charter. After the system has been purchased from an authorized representative and staff training carried out, the Rental Network agent is listed in the directory and gets full access to the Network and its privileges.

Following the introduction of its newly-packaged LA8 electronics, the Network standard is now called the "K" standard and currently includes KUDO, K1, associated subwoofers, the new LA-RAK touring rack and system accessories, such as rigging and cabling. The "K" universal system standard is designed to: optimize the performance of L-ACOUSTICS systems; simplify cross-rental, interfacing and pooling of systems; and generate maximum efficiency and safety in the field.

Finally, a new training program has been designed to provide system and sound design training for agents' technicians working with the new K standard. Two levels are offered: the System Technician, which covers system design, installation and testing/tuning, and the K System Engineer (KSE) representing the highest level of qualification.
