AFMG Newsletter - Issue 45, July 2020


Dear customers, colleagues, and friends,
 
Welcome to a new edition of the AFMG® Newsletter. These quarterly issues inform you about software updates, classes, and interesting downloads related to our products.

Latest Version of EASE Focus Supports Extended GLL Plug-In API v1.1

Since 2017 AFMG has provided an SDK (Software Development Kit) for EASE Focus 3 to loudspeaker companies, enabling them to independently develop powerful plug-ins for their GLLs. This includes e.g. custom properties windows, safety calculations, or giving access to innovative features of high-end loudspeaker systems such as beam steering technology.

AFMG is continuously working on extensions and recently released the GLL Plug-In API version 1.1. This version includes a new module supporting access to the geometric data of audience areas of EASE Focus 3 projects. By retrieving this data, loudspeaker-specific aiming algorithms can be implemented to set line array splay angles and electronic filters. For beam steering loudspeakers the filter configuration can be computed automatically in order to optimally cover selected areas of the venue. This new version 1.1 of the GLL Plug-In is already supported by EASE Focus 3.1.12.
If you are an EASE Focus 3 user, please have a look at your preferred loudspeaker brands and models to see if there are any key features that are missing in the software. In all probability those features can be implemented via the GLL Plug-In API. The corresponding SDK is available for any interested loudspeaker manufacturer. AFMG invites all loudspeaker companies to expand the feature set of EASE Focus for the benefit of their users by adding custom product functionality.

Please find detailed info on our GLL Plug-In API website or contact AFMG with any questions!

AFMG Software Trainings Are Moving On

Several AFMG software trainings have taken place during the last months even though Covid-19 restrictions are in place in many countries. Our training partners are successfully adapting their educational offerings to the current situation.

In this, AFMG is mainly focusing on 3 different paths:
  • Webinars and Online Classes,
  • Open and closed on-site classes with limited number of participants, as well as
  • One-on-one trainings via Skype and other channels.
The webinars or online trainings especially allow acting more independently given the current situation. In May and June the first webinars for EASE and EASE Focus have taken place for our Japanese customers.
For the future, AFMG hopes to provide more alternative training formats in order to supplement our classic on-site trainings. Together with our partners we are highly motivated to continually develop and expand our offerings in this regard and thus to meet the needs of our joint customers even more effectively.

Now that first alternatives have been developed and implemented, we are pleased to announce various training courses planned for the second half of the year in many parts of the world. You will find a detailed list at the 'Seminars Overview' below this article.
Are you looking for a different training? Please do not hesitate to contact our partners directly  to discuss further training options with them.

 
We would be pleased to welcome you at one of our next AFMG software trainings!
