JBL PRO ANNOUNCES DIGITAL DIRECTIVITY ANALYSIS 5.1 SOFTWARE UPDATE AT ISE 2020

March 2, 2020 News

Free software update streamlines the registration process and introduces a new plug-in for easily importing data from SketchUp 3D modeling software

Harman Professional Solutions, leader in audio, video, lighting and control systems, today announced the JBL Digital Directivity Analysis (DDA) 5.1 software update at the 2020 ISE show in Amsterdam. 

Designed to work with JBL Intellivox products along with any point source speakers in the JBL portfolio using common loudspeaker format (CLF) data, DDA software is a powerful simulation tool for electro-acoustic design. DDA enables sound designers to visualise and statistically predict direct SPL, total SPL, D/R ratio, STI and delay spread.

Designed to offer improved workflow, the free 5.1 update adds two significant new features. DDA 5.1 streamlines the registration process and removes the need for repeated license renewal found in earlier versions of the software. Along with DDA 5.1 a SketchUp plug-in has also been released, which enables users to easily import 3D geometry from SketchUp software.

“With DDA 5.1 we’re continuing our mission to help users streamline the modelling process to achieve more effective results with JBL loudspeakers,” said Nat Hecht, Product Manager, Commercial Sound, Harman Professional Solutions. “With DDA 5.1, users can instantly start using the program after registration. And with integrated support for third party software like SketchUp, engineers and acousticians are able to streamline their workflow.”

DDA 5.1 is a powerful acoustic modelling software tool that allows sound system designers to simulate speaker response in a 3D environment. Users can download the latest version of DDA directly from the JBL Professional website and begin using the software immediately after registration, without the need to repeatedly renew the license. The new SketchUp plug-in enables users to import data from SketchUp 3D design software. DDA 5.1 also offers integrated support for EASE, CATT Acoustic and Odeon.

DDA 5.1 and the SketchUp Interface are available to download free of charge from the JBL website.
