Lab.gruppen PLM+ & D Series

NOW available !!

Lab.gruppen has announced that all of its new PLM+ and D Series amplifiers are now shipping.

The new PLM+ touring platform offers all of the performance characteristics, flexibility, and power of the company's PLM (Powered Loudspeaker Management) 20000Q, but with twice the processing power, twice the throughput and a host of additional features and improvements designed to make the life cycle of any production easier, smoother and more efficient, from the system design stage through to the final load out.

The PLM+ range offers two models – PLM20k44 and the PLM12k44 – each combining a true four-in/four-out configuration for audio I/O, as well as four modules of Lake Processing. Whether the load comprises subwoofers, high frequency drivers, full range loudspeakers, and constant voltage distributed systems, or any combination thereof – PLM+ was built to be capable of handling it all. Other features include four analogue inputs, four AES inputs, four power outputs, four Lake Contour Modules, 8x8 Dante I/O, two-port port 1GB network switch, dual redundancy and much more.

A total of up to 16 Inputs can be routed to a PLM+ device, allowing audio format conversion from one input type to another, before delivering these inputs to other devices in the system. Matrixing/summing of inputs can be easily achieved and controlled within the Lake environment by engineers at front of house or monitors, where using a tablet computer, they can tune, monitor and drive their system.

D Series is now Lab.gruppen's flagship install-dedicated four-channel DSP amplifier line.

The new range represents the most advanced and capable install-focused platform ever conceived by Lab.gruppen, according to the manufacturer.

Total integration is the core ethos behind D Series, delivering what company engineers describe as an amplifier platform with "genuinely open interoperability" – a product that can integrate seamlessly with a wide range of digital audio and control protocols.

The new amps are available in two distinct variants – one featuring Lake, the other offering Tesira by Biamp Systems – each delivering different capabilities and advantages. The Lake version provides a package of Lake Processing DSP with analogue, AES and a dual-redundant Dante network solution, supported by the creation of new custom software to provide extensive integration potential with most of the main systems manufacturers.

The Tesira variant is the result of a collaboration between Lab.gruppen and Biamp. These models are equipped with Tesira DSP, as well as AVB audio and control, for "unheralded" amplifier and DSP platform integration designed to ensure seamless interoperability between respective systems.
