Virtual Productions is proud to announce the launch of the Coda Viray PA system to the South African market. The PA system will be launched at the Mediatech trade show at the Coca Cola dome on the 17th of July and will be available for rental in South Africa after the show. The PA system will be available for rental and hire through the whole of South Africa. The components that make up the Virtal Productions PA system is the Coda Viray line array and the Code SCV-F sub woofer.
ViRAY has been over two and a half years in development and the key to the development is the DDP Dual Diaphragm Planar-wave-driver technology, is a patented evolution of the annular ring diaphragm driver first created by Alexandrov in 1996.
Weighing 25.5kg, one ViRAY cabinet combines the DDP with two 8” neodymium low-distortion cone drivers to handle the LF. Coda’s ‘ViCOUPLER’ phase-plug/waveguide hybrid then manages and steers the energy produced.
Coda’s operational HQ is in Germany and the company develops and manufactures the majority of its components its own factory, including its own drivers. (Amplifiers and DSP control are courtesy of OEM suppliers.) Cabinets are made of Baltic birch, and Coda has just brought a Polyurea coating process on-board for added durability.
ViRAY sits between Coda’s AIRLINE LA12 and LA8 systems, both of which have raised the profile of the company over the past couple of years – though ViRAY represents a more aggressive approach to the marketplace.
