A year on from the launch of Yamaha’s hugely successful CL series of digital mixing consoles, the flexibility of the system’s Dante networking was a key focus of the company’s presence at ProLight+Sound 2013.
Exhibiting on Stand F50, Hall 8.0, the advantages of Yamaha digital solutions were amply shown by the majority of products being integrated in a live Dante network.
The CL5, CL3, CL1 consoles were on display with the expanding range of i/o options, including the Rio3224-D, Rio1608-D, Ri8-D and Ro8-D. Yamaha M7CLs and LS9s were included on the network, showing the seamless integration provided by the DANTE-MY16-AUD interface card, as well as Yamaha’s industry-leading power amplifiers and the DSR, DXR and DXS series loudspeakers.
Yamaha and Steinberg’s flagship Nuage audio post-production system was demonstrated, again networked via Dante, with staff showing visitors how the modular system is radically re-defining of what is possible in audio post-production.
Other Yamaha products included the Commercial Installation Solutions (CIS) series – including MTX matrix processors, XMV multi-channel amplifiers, VXC and VXS loudspeakers – which has been devised to provide a complete system solution for situations where there isn’t an experienced audio operator available.
Staff was also available to discuss Yamaha’s AFC3 Active Field Control system, which transparently adjusts and enhances the acoustic characteristics of a space while preserving its natural features.
