The D2 Studio Version is
optimized for use in mix rooms, broadcast suites, and home theatres. Like the D2 Cinema Version,
it represents a comprehensive approach
to testing. The system
is lightweight yet rugged, designed for convenient and accurate field
testing. Because the D2 hardware is integrated with the win|RTA software,
it is capable of performing automated measurement tasks.
The Studio Version utilizes a single unit interface, the
MOTU 4Pre. This compact and lightweight unit simplifies
setup. It connects to the computer via USB or firewire.
The 4Pre can be powered by wall power adaptor or firewire bus power.
This system can also be used in larger rooms by utilizing a standard microphone extension cable or
"mic snake". AcoustX offers this extension in a high quality, flexible cable.
The software based multiplexer
duplicates the hardware functionality in the original D2. This enables the D2 Studio Version
to do automated tests like the Cinema Version, including four microphone multiplexed room response measurements utilizing individual microphone
calibration files and gain leveling. Automated four microphone NC
and RT60 testing are also available.
The Comprehensive Theatre Test feature is
included, which allows the operator to test
and catalog all facets of a theatre's performance in one file. CTT
has modes for Cinema, Mix rooms, and Home Theatre. Data can be
easily exported to a spreadsheet for report generation.
