19.00 Introductory Workshop
All RS25 delegates, especially those new to RS, are invited to join an informal workshop tutorial in the Tennyson Room on the evening before the main sessions. It will include:
* A practical demonstration of some fundamental acoustic conditions
Helen Goddard and Paul Malpas
* Maths Primer on Sound Field Reproduction
Phil Nelson and Keith Holland
and a Q&A opportunity with a panel of experienced electroacousticians, including
Peter Mapp, John Taylor, Alistair Meechin and Dave Bruml.
21.00 Demonstration of new loudspeaker technology
KEF Blade Technology – KEF's research engineers will explain how the KEF Blade coincident source array provides apparent point source behaviour over the whole audio band without diaphragm breakup, followed by the first public demonstration of this loudspeaker system in the UK.
21.00 Martin Audio Presentation
Our presentation will compare our conventional loudspeaker technology with that of a small line array. The theme will be how the increase in directivity control, afforded by a line array, can reap benefits in typical acoustic spaces. An explanation will be given of how the line array can be intelligently numerically optimised to cover the room. We will also be extending the theme of directivity control down to low frequencies by demonstrating an omni directional subwoofer compared to a directional array. An explanation will be given of how the directional array parameters were derived. Finally a conventional loudspeaker plus omni directional sub will be compared to a small line array with a directional subwoofer.
