When D Series was launched at InfoComm 2014, it made a huge impression on the AV community, walking away from the event laden with two industry awards for Best of Show – one from New Bay Media publications and one from Church Sound Production.

The first ever InfoComm Best of Show Awards, organised by a number of NewBay Media’s AV and Pro Audio Group publications, were created to honour outstanding products that were exhibited at this year’s show. Winners were chosen by panels of professional users and editors based on descriptions provided by manufacturers. The judges were also present at the exhibition to see the products for themselves and make their decisions. Criteria included ease of installation, performance, relevance, value/ROI, network friendliness, versatility and reliability.

Awards were given by Audio Pro International and sister titles Mix, ProSound News, ProAudio Review, Sound & Video Contractor, AV Technology, Digital Signage, Music Festival Business and Government Video.

Elsewhere, the editors and staff of Church Production Magazine announced their “Top 5 Products for Churches from InfoComm 2014.” Exhibitors displayed tens of thousands of products —- many of them hugely beneficial to church technical artists. Distilling them down to just five was no easy task, the editor’s reported.

Editor Brian Blackmore said: “We selected the D Series power amplifiers as one of the “Top 5…from InfoComm” due to the remarkable —- possibly unprecedented —- feature set.”

Total integration is the core ethos behind D Series, delivering what Lab.gruppen engineers describe as an amplifier platform that offers ‘genuinely open interoperability’ – a product that can integrate seamlessly with a wide range of digital audio and control protocols – bringing unique features and performance capabilities to virtually any high-performance, fixed-install project.

The D Series platform is available in two distinct variants – one featuring processing from Lake, the other featuring Tesira by Biamp Systems – each offering unique capabilities and advantages. The Lake variant offers DSP with analog, AES and a dual-redundant Dante network solution; supported by the development of new custom software to provide extensive integration potential with most key systems manufacturers. With the Tesira variant of D Series, comes a potent new collaboration between Lab.gruppen and Biamp Systems. This has resulted in dedicated models equipped with Tesira DSP, AVB audio and remote control, to offer remarkable amplifier and DSP platform integration designed to ensure seamless interoperability between respective systems.

Available in three power configurations (8,000 W, 12,000 W and 20,000 W total power output), each available in either variant, D Series also heralds the debut of Lab.gruppen’s innovative Rational Power Management (RPM) technology. Unlike other amplifiers where ‘flexibility’ often involves compromise (eg. reducing channel count or reducing the total power), Lab.gruppen says RPM allows truly flexible power allocation across all channels to ensure the most efficient and effective use of total amplifier inventory.
