Yorkville Tunes To The New Market

Infocomm 2011 represents the first show in which AV manufacturers have had the time to fully develop new products and implement a new strategy to deal with the realities of the AV market since the crash of ’08. What we are seeing at the show are new products that put top technology in small bites. A general theme has been the scaling of top of the line pro systems down for the masses and the form of this trend at Yorkville is the new Paraline Series compact expandable active vertical array loudspeaker system. Yorkville took the technology of their big pro arrays and squeezed it down into the PSA1 vertical array and the PSA1S compact active subwoofer. Two BMS 1.75-inch compression drivers deliver a 15-degree vertical and 110-degree horizontal pattern with 1200 watts program power. The 1400 watt dual 12-inch PSA1S sub booms out of a 15mm birch plywood cabinet that serves as a mounting base for the whole system. Yorkville’s Laurence Bell also showed me the LP-LED4 stage lighting system. The four LED modules, each containing four 12.5 watt high intensity LEDs, are pole mounted and can be used to provide lighting effects for a band. With the addition of a DMX module the system becomes DMX controllable. At the control end is the LP-C12 system controller capable of running up to 12 channels (3 bars) of lights. The unit can provide presets, selectable fade rates, effect speed and complete control of each individual pod’s color and intensity.
