Beam Steered Line Arrays have been commercially available for more than 15 years. Although originally intended for and restricted to speech applications, in the last few years, full range music systems have also started to enter the market. This tutorial will discuss the technology behind the systems, their application, and potential limitations. The panel members all have a wide experience of the steered arrays and so are able to cover all aspects of their design and application. The workshop will include a number of case histories and aims to get anyone not familiar with the technology up to speed as well as providing experienced users with some answers to long standing questions.

AES Technical Council This session is presented in association with the AES Technical Committee on Acoustics and Sound Reinforcement
