Bose Professional today announced the release of the Bose Array Tool, a new software application to help make sound system design easier for AV professionals. Bose says the software features an intuitive workflow that requires minimal training.
The Bose Array Tool brings variables — such as room size, budget constraints, loudspeaker model and placement — under control. Using a direct-field calculation engine, system designers can quickly try out different loudspeaker models, placements and formations to best match the audio needs of a venue.
The software provides drawing tools to manipulate room surfaces and loudspeakers dynamically and allows for visualizing the speakers’ coverage effect in near real time. Ordering lists, rigging and array information can be easily exported to make the virtual design a reality.
Version 1.0 supports designing with the Panaray MSA12X loudspeaker. Support for more Bose Professional loudspeaker models will be available in future versions.
The Bose Array Tool is now available for download here.
