L-Acoustics’ demo’d their newly launched Kiva II ultra-compact line source, as well as the KS28 reference subwoofer and X Series of coaxial enclosures, at the AES shot. The demos showcased L-Acoustics’ latest developments on the open standard Audio Video Bridging/Time Sensitive Networking (AVB/TSN) technology. Show control for the demos was managed using an Apple Mac mini equipped with Q-Lab software, playing 20 audio channels at 24-bit/96 kHz directly to an Ethernet AVB/TSN Gigabit network via three streams of eight channels each. LA Network Manager 2.5, which implements an AVDECC 1722.1 AVB/TSN controller, connected the streams to five newly updated LA4X and LA12X amplified controllers, dedicating one audio channel to each amplified controller’s output. In addition, a MOTU 1248 AVB device streamed the presenter’s microphone over AVB/TSN to an LA4X amplified controller, all equipment being connected together by an affordable MOTU AVB/TSN bridge.
