REDEFINING THE VIO EXPERIENCE: DBTECHNOLOGIES RELEASES VIO FIRMWARE 2.0, THE MUST-HAVE UPGRADE FOR THE ENTIRE VIO SERIES


Since the first VIO releases a few years ago, dBTechnologies engaged in a constant dialogue with the worldwide community of VIO users. This priceless feedback from the world of touring and sound integration was the foundation for the development of VIO Firmware 2.0, which is now available to bring countless advantages to all VIO users. Redefining four essential aspects of each VIO cabinet (phase response, latency, frequency response, and sensitivity) Firmware 2.0 aims at increasing acoustic compatibility among all VIO speakers, and dramatically speeds up setup operations of combined VIO systems.

Thanks to Firmware 2.0, every VIO cabinet makes the most of its onboard DSP featuring linear phase FIR filters, resulting in a perfectly consistent phase response when assembling various VIO products in one single setup. Moreover, Firmware 2.0 standardizes latency across the entire VIO series, which results in a significant speeding up of PA alignment operations. Plus, FW 2.0 also enables an extended onboard delay capability on some selected VIO systems. Not only: Firmware 2.0 also uniforms the input sensitivity of every VIO speaker, enabling a precise, predictable, and consistent behavior of the limiters across the entire PA, and allowing users to easily keep headroom under control. What is more: upgraded VIO firmware operates on the frequency response of single cabinets in order to get a uniform and distinctive voicing in all VIO family and resulting in a tighter, fuller, and more precise sound reproduction.

All new VIO systems will be shipped with Firmware 2.0 by factory default setting. Anyway, all VIO users can upgrade their VIO cabinets at any time for free, simply by downloading Firmware 2.0 at dBTechnologies website.
