L-Acoustics Rental Inventory Expansion for Adlib With New P1 Processors

Adlib has become one of the first L-Acoustics rental companies in the UK to invest in the new L-Acoustics P1 measurement platform and processor.

A networkable digital audio processor, the L-Acoustics P1 will be deployed straight away into a number of applications including:

  • As a FOH processor for console selection and guest EQ.
  • For integrating other platforms including providing additional processing for L-Acoustiscs powered systems like L-Acoustics 112p.
  • As an audio bridge & signal distribution platform with 20 inputs and 18 outputs including analog, AES/EBU, and AVB.
  • As a platform for multi-microphone measurement with temperature and humidity acquisition and temperature/humidity probe.
  • As a time-aligned, redundant, AVB-AES/EBU-Analog signal distribution system.

Adlib Audio Director Dave Jones commented,

The investment in ten P1 processors follows our recent delivery of additional L-Acoustics K2 and LA12X rental inventory and ensures that we are able to continue serving our clients with the latest technology for L-Acoustics. We are committed to the L-Acoustic product range and have been part of the L-Acoustics Rental Network at K Standard for 8 years.
