Project Description

Sound System Control Software

Project period: 05/2014 - 05/2016

This project aims to develop a control technology and interface for optimizing the remote adjustment of sound fields for professional loudspeaker arrays used in concerts, theatres, public address, and stadiums. PK Sound’s patent-pending hardware, in combination with the new software developed in this project, will allow the optimization of a sound field in venues of any shape or size. The system will advance the ability to control the dispersion of loudspeaker arrays and improve sound quality for customers.
