pro.RENTAL

SOUND SYSTEMS FOR BEST LIVE PERFORMANCE

All systems from the K&F pro.RENTAL range are designed for mobile use. Flexible, reliable and with professional fittings. Handles to make handling easier, and feet positioned where they are needed. The black coating is made of polyurea and is, therefore, more resilient than any other paint. Thought out mechanically and designed for long-term use. The pro.RENTAL series is distinguished acoustically by the best sound characteristics at maximum performance. The carefully selected neodymium chassis deliver optimum results and also meet the highest standards. K&F pro.RENTAL - impressive presentation!

All K&F pro.RENTAL systems can be easily combined with the K&F SystemAmps as a drive and control unit. For maximum performance and effective protection. The presets include the parameters for each loudspeaker in order to achieve an optimum result. This guarantees the user consistent and reproducible results of high quality with marked high system performance. All in all - K&F pro.RENTAL are the ideal sound systems for mobile use with unlimited possibilities.

K&F VIDA

Make things happen

VIDA stands for ‘versatile intelligent digital array’. The aim of the VIDA L development is to explore from the outset what is technically feasible and to implement this as a groundbreaking innovation.

Push it to the limit

A total of 48 DSP and Class D power amplifier channels are distributed on three loudspeaker routes in a coaxial arrangement. Each VIDA L module is equipped with six 6.5″ woofer chassis, twelve 3.5″ mid-range drivers and thirty-two 1″ dome tweeters. For the beam steering, typical artefacts of up to 10 kHz are avoided in combination with the special waveguide system. Incredible, but true – as of now live to see!

The whole spectrum

Through active allocation of the frequency spectrum to each optimised woofer, mid-range and tweeter chassis, dynamic playback of up to 60 Hz can be achieved. In this way, the VIDA L meets all the requirements of a full-range system. If required, the optional VIDA C module that can be mounted on the back of the VIDA L can further extend the low frequency range or, alternatively, can optimise the system’s low frequency radiation in cardioid mode. An auxiliary DSP output is available for the expansion of subwoofers. Any questions – or better overshoot now with VIDA L?

Safety first

VIDA L offers all common input variants such as DANTE, AES3 and analogue. In case of a fault the two stage fallback concept switches to a substitute signal. All loudspeakers within an array are connected to each other via an Ethernet cable and are automatically recognised and grouped in the software. With VIDA L security is paramount and redefined!

One plus one is three

The high-quality and subtly hidden connection mechanics of the VIDA L, which has been kept lean, can be used easily and safely. Using the optional flying frame, individual and coupled elements can be vertically flown or mechanically tilted forward. The inclination of the system is thereby recognised via the integrated goniometer and is fed into the calculation of the beam steering algorithm. All calculations and adjustments are made in real time! A touch-based, native app is available for operation (at least Win 8.1). Everything for an optimal and precise real-time controlling!

Controllable, loud, audiophile

VIDA L for high-quality, fixed installations and also for demanding mobile applications. The incredible perfect solution!
