TC Group brings integrated solutions to ISE 2014

Tannoy, Lab.gruppen and Lake are brought their extensive range of commercial install and performance audio products to ISE 2014 in Amsterdam and to Prolight + Sound show in Frankfurt. TC Group’s install and tour brands showcased their integrated audio systems for the installation market. ISE 2014 actually saw the first major European debut of Lab.gruppen’s Lucia amplifier.
Suitable for low cost, low hassle commercial installations such as boardrooms, classrooms and retail outlets, the 2-channel LUCIA (Localized Utility Compact Intelligent Amplification) is a compact and versatile Energy Star compliant Class D platform. Combining innovative low-impedance electronics with cutting edge processing from the world of high-end broadcast audio, Lucia is designed to deliver consistently great sound at any listening level.
The LUCIA M model variants include ADLC (Automatic Dynamic Loudness Contouring) which provides a more comfortable listening experience – especially at low perceived levels. Dynamic processing automatically reduces at higher SPL so that the system maintains a consistent full bandwidth sound with full impact at all levels. ‘M’ models also benefit from additional DSP functionality and 4 x 4 mix matrix.
With a range of on-board presets, LUCIA offers optimised performance with Tannoy’s class leading CMS Series in ceiling loudspeakers and other Tannoy product lines such as CVS and DVS, all of which will be on show at ISE.

Lab.gruppen’s IPD Series again offers packaged system optimisation and easy configuration with Tannoy’s flagship sound reinforcement lines, including VX and VSX Series via officially released presets (Load Library). At the heart of the IPD platform is a latest-generation DSP engine equipped with up to a total of 40 real-time, multi-slope parametric EQs along with adjustable gain, input and output delay, and both high- and low-pass filters adjustable to any frequency.
The DSP also provides extensive protection for the loudspeaker system using the software-controlled Speaker Protect Limiter, which is configured from within IntelliDrive Controller software. The IPD LoadLibrary, a collection of Lab.gruppen released presets provides quick configuration and optimization of a wide range of loudspeaker systems, both generic and popular brand models.
Completing Lab.gruppen’s offering was the flagship PLM Series.
Tannoy also showed the latest developments in QFlex, the company’s digitally steerable column array. Available in a range of sizes to suit any application, from the QFlex 8 all the way to the QFlex 64, the range now benefits from full integration with Ease Focus 2.0 and steering presets. The new VNET/Ethernet bridge also enhances QFlex’s capabilities in large scale network applications such as transport hubs.
A new range of VNET VSX subwoofers were introduced to fully complement QFlex and other Tannoy series. The new subwoofers add an additional three models to the range.
In addition to the professional ranges, Tannoy also used ISE to showcase many of its residential products, including the European debut of the new $75,000 Kingdom Royal Carbon Black, the most powerful residential loudspeaker ever created in the company's 87-year history.
