The Pan Beam PB 16 is a compact, active, digitally controllable line source loudspeaker with Beam Steering technology in an attractive design, developed for high-quality speech and music transmissions. The PB 16 features Pan Audio DSP and network functionalities such as Pan Net, AES/EBU and Dante. The PB 16 can generate four beams, allowing for targeted sound reinforcement. The beams can be modified using various optimizers (max. SPL, SPL min. sidelobes, min. sidelobes). With the help of digital signal processing, the vertical beam angle and the tilt angle can be precisely aligned to the area to be sounded.

Pan Acoustics supports Dante Domain Manager (DDM)

With a new firmware update for the Dante interface of the active loudspeaker models from the Pan Beam and Pan Subwoofer series, the Dante Domain Manager (DDM) is supported.

By supporting the DDM function (such as stream sharing across domain boundaries, assigning access rights, monitoring), the speaker models from the Pan Beam and Pan Subwoofer series can be used even more flexibly in Dante domain environments.

PAN BEAM Steering Technology

Years of research resulted in our unique Pan Beam Steering technology. For more than 20 years, we have been engaged in basic acoustic research and have incorporated this knowledge into our products. We can precisely adjust the sound propagation of our digitally steerable Pan Beam loudspeakers, comparable to a variable flashlight beam. As a result, we can significantly improve the perceived acoustics in rooms with long reverberation times.

With our Beam Steering solutions, we create remarkable speech intelligibility even in acoustically critical situations, something that cannot be achieved with traditional loudspeakers. We steer the sound directly to the auditorium, using only electronic methods and intelligent software, without the need to mechanically tilt the speaker or changing its position.
