Venueflex™ Technologies are designed to address common audio challenges and provide greater artistic control. They are true to the principles of traditional acoustics but integrate into modern system and room design.
Active Acoustics processing creates a unique and accurate acoustical “signature” that matches the acoustical performance of the room in which it is being installed. By selectively routing signals through the processor, the natural reflective sound of the room can be lifted and controlled artistically with much greater spatial realism than conventional “reverb” processors. Reflections are rendered through an array of purpose-built loudspeakers distributed throughout the room.
Active Bass Control
Reduce power alleys and coverage nulls. Our processors continually sample the subwoofer drive signals from an installed audio system, and produces complementary and adaptive signals to drive numerous low-frequency control loudspeakers distributed around the room. This creates tighter, more controlled sub-bass response for an improved audio experience.
“Dry” immersive audio inputs from a mixing console are routed, timed and distributed properly to the same loudspeakers used for adaptive acoustics. This allows “surround” type mixing, console-based effects or theatrical audio content to be distributed spatially throughout the room with no additional investment in hardware.
TQ™ processing implements the propriety technologies developed by Fulcrum Acoustic founder, David Gunness. TQ (temporal equalization) processing is a highly precise application of DSP, exploiting optimized Finite Impulse Response (FIR) filters to fine-tune loudspeaker performance. TQ processing results in natural-sounding spectral balance; a pleasing aesthetic balance between highly transient sources (such as percussion instruments) and less transient sources (such as human voice); uncolored vocals; and excellent intelligibility.
For our historical sanctuary we wanted to find a way to modernize our sound system and acoustic design while maintaining the character that our congregation has loved for generations.
Venueflex™ Active Acoustics allows us to use a pipe organ in our traditional service and a rock band in our contemporary service, all while maintaining the sonic character unique to both worship styles.
