Community Unveils Products and Offers Training at InfoComm


9 June 2019

Community Professional Loudspeakers will unveil pioneering new technology and introduce a host of important new products at this year’s InfoComm show in Orlando, Florida. CEO Steve Johnson, President and Founder Bruce Howze, Senior Director of Engineering Paul Peace, and other members of the Community team will be on hand in booth 6343 and demo room W224E to discuss the company’s products and technologies. Community is also offering a full schedule of demos and a special training session, as well as hosting a Happy Hour.

At InfoComm, Community will unveil new beamforming technology that addresses the unique coverage and projection challenges of large venues, taking the wraps off their new L SERIES LVH-900 Beamforming Venue Horn. The company also will present its new Amplified Loudspeaker Controllers (ALC), which provide all of the signal routing, zone switching, DSP processing, protective limiting, remote monitoring, and amplification functions needed between a mixer and the loudspeakers in virtually any Community Professional Loudspeakers application. The combination of the LVH-900 Beamforming Venue Horn, Community’s proprietary room prediction software, and the Amplified Loudspeaker Controllers, enables tailoring of the directivity of each loudspeaker, or array of loudspeakers to meet the sound requirements in even the most challenging applications.

Community’s InfoComm demo presentations will also feature their I SERIES Modular Vertical Array 600 (IV6). Aesthetically designed for installed indoor or outdoor applications, the IV6 provides physical and acoustic-shaping tools that allow designers to tailor an array to the needs of any venue, providing uniform coverage in short- or long-throw applications.

At the Community booth, you’ll be able to view the inside of an LVH-900 cabinet and see the Amplified Loudspeaker Controllers, along with several other Community products, including the R SERIES, W SERIES, and E SERIES. Two demos per hour will be offered on the odd hours (9, 9:30, 11, 11:30, and so on) in demo room W224E, where you can hear the LVH-900, and IV6, powered by ALC. You are also invited to relax with the Community team at Happy Hour in the demo room on Wednesday and Thursday from 4:30 to 5:30. 

On Tuesday, June 11, from 3 to 4:30 pm, Community is offering a special training session entitled “Which Loudspeakers, How Many, Where to Point Them?” taught by Senior Director of Engineering Paul Peace and Technical Services Manager John Loufik. This class will introduce a new concept developed by Community called VenuePolar, a new room loudspeaker algorithm that answers the big system-design questions, in addition to optimising the results. The acoustics of the venue-loudspeaker interface will be discussed, and the simplicity of the “designing backward” user workflow will be demonstrated. The results are comprehensive loudspeaker-plus-amplifier designs that are simple to develop yet mathematically optimised. This is InfoComm Session MT30, and attendees will earn 0.75 Renewal Unit Credits. Register by adding the session to your InfoComm Seminar and Workshop package. For more about this session, see

The Community team looks forward to seeing you at InfoComm booth 6343, demo room W224E, and the training session.
