"Big Sound" in Small and Medium Size Rooms: Next-Gen Transducer, Acoustic and Electronic Technologies Make High-Performance, Large Format Monitoring Accessible To A Broad Range of Rooms
To date, space, acoustic and budgetary limitations have prevented smaller rooms from enjoying the high output, detailed monitoring experience of the large control room. For these rooms, near field monitors are the fall back solution. At AES, JBL Professional previews a large-format monitoring system in a form-factor that makes large format monitoring a viable option for project studios and small mix rooms. We will discuss the enabling technologies and demonstrate the system.
