PREVIEW Loudspeaker Software is a tool to help you select and set up Electro-Voice loudspeakers for the best coverage in any venue. The full-color 3D interface helps specifiers, designers and audio engineers to quickly find the optimum loudspeaker, amplifier drive and delay requirements, and other factors that will ensure that both line-array and point-source loudspeakers deliver the best possible performance in every deployment. For line-array designs, PREVIEW will only allow mechanically valid combinations of cabinets and rigging hardware, depending on the selected safety factor.
