1. OUTLINE OF SR-D8 PC SOFTWARE
Equipped with 2 analog and 4 CobraNet inputs, the SR-D8 performs acoustic signal processing for each input
audio signal to output sounds through speakers.
Also, it features a beam steering function that controls the vertical directivity angle of the audio signals to be
radiated from the speaker.
Use the SR-D8 PC Software to set the following functions for the SR-D8.
• Matrix function
• Fader function
• Filter function
• Compressor function
• Delay function
• Beam steering function
• Beam steering simulation function
Settings can be made regardless of whether a PC is communicating (online) or not communicating (offline) with
the SR-D8 speaker system.
Note that some operations and indications such as level meter indication and compressor reduction indication
must be operated or displayed online.
The PC communicates with the SR-D8 via a network. When online with the SR-D8, the PC can perform preset
memory loading, setting change of the acoustic signal processing, and beam steering to the SR-D8 in real time.
Set parameters can be stored in the PC.

7.5.4. Calculating the Beam steering automatically
In the Beam Steering view, when the Audience Setting is active, clicking the [Calculate Steering] button sets
each parameter of the Steering Setting by automatically calculating each parameter of Speaker Setting and
Audience Setting so that the beam can properly direct to the set Audience.
[Before Beam Steering automatic calculation]
The state before calculation is assumed as shown below.
[After Beam Steering automatic calculation]
In the "Before Beam Steering automatic calculation" state, Beam angle and Beam width are automatically
calculated and set as shown below so that the beam can be properly directed to the Audience when the
[Calculate Steering] button for Audience Setting in the Beam Steering view is clicked.
50
[When Beam Steering automatic calculation results in error]
Automatic calculation of the beam steering may result in error as shown below depending on the positional
relationship between the Speaker and Audience.
When the automatic calculation of the Beam steering results in error, the Error dialog appears as shown below.
Click the [OK] button, and readjust the Speaker and Audience settings.
• In case the length of Audience is 0:
When both the start and end positions of the Audience setting for the enabled Audience are equal, then the
length of Audience is 0, resulting in error.
• In case the start position of the Audience setting is located posterior to the speaker position:
As the Audience position is located posterior to the speaker position, the beam cannot be directed to the
Audience.
• In case the beam angle is beyond the range between −45° and 45° as a result of automatic calculation
of Beam steering:
The range the automatic calculation covers is between −45° and 45°. The automatic calculation cannot be
performed beyond the range as the angle is too sharp.
• In case the beam width is over 45° as a result of automatic calculation of Beam steering:
Maximum width the automatic calculation covers is 45°. The automatic calculation cannot be performed
beyond the limit.
51
• In case the beam angle becomes the angle at which beam is directed upward to the Audience floor
as a result of automatic calculation of Beam steering:
As this beam does not reach the Audience, the calculated result is invalid.
• In case the beam angle becomes the angle at which the beams will cross as a result of automatic
calculation of Beam Steering:
Though beams are not crossing in the image below, when the Audience setting is made as shown in the
image below, the first beam angle should be smaller than the second one (beams cross) in order to target
each Audience, resulting in error.
[Context menu]
Right-clicking the mouse with the pointer over the Beam Steering view or the Contents view causes the following
context menu to be displayed.
• Beam Steering Parameter Copy
Copies the selected Stack’s Beam Steering parameters into memory.
• Beam Steering Parameter Paste

16. GLOSSARY
16.1 System Basic Items
Speaker
A physical speaker system.
Stack
A line array speaker system consisting of one or more speakers. Multiple speakers are physically connected.
Individual speakers must always belong to a stack, and up to 4 speakers can be included in a single stack. An
entire system can contain up to 4 stacks.
Local Link
A digital audio link used to transmit audio signal from the main speaker to the sub-speakers in the stack in
which two or more speakers are connected.
Main Speaker
SR-D8-M.
One of the speakers making up a stack and having Analog and CobraNet inputs, CobraNet output, and local
link output that transmits audio signal to the sub-speakers within the same stack.
It is also provided with a mixer function, and signals processed from Analog Inputs 1 and 2 and CobraNet
Inputs 1 – 4 can be directed to Mix Out 1 and Mix Out 2, which in turn output such processed signals to each
sub-speaker.
Sub-Speaker
SR-D8-S.
One of the speakers making up a stack. It has a Local Link Input terminal that receives audio signal from the
main speaker’s Local Link Output, and a Local Link Through terminal that forwards received audio on to another
sub-speaker within the same stack.

Sub-speaker
The SR-D8 speaker system has a total of 6 input channels (Analog Inputs 1 – 2 and CobraNet Inputs 1 – 4).
CobraNet
A format that uses the Ethernet network to distribute multi-channel digital audio. The SR-D8 speaker system
supports CobraNet audio input.
For details about CobraNet, refer to Cirrus Logic, Inc.’s CobraNet site http://www.cobranet.info/.
Bundle, Receive Bundle, and Transmit Bundle
In CobraNet, audio data is input and output in digital units called “bundles.” A receive bundle inputs audio data
from external equipment to the speaker using CobraNet. A transmit bundle outputs audio data from the speaker
to external equipment using CobraNet.
100
Bundle Number
The CobraNet bundle is managed by bundle numbers. To receive audio data transmitted from the CobraNet
device, the transmitting device’s transmit bundle number must match the receiving device’s receive bundle
number. Set the bundle number to 1 – 65279, depending on the intended use.
Bundle No. 1 – 255:
Multicast bundle
Bundle No. 256 – 65279: Unicast bundle
Multicast Bundle
Bundles set to CobraNet bundle number of 1 – 255. The same audio data can be simultaneously transmitted
from the transmitting device to all receiving devices within a network.
Unicast Bundle
Bundles set to CobraNet bundle number 256 − 65279. Audio data is transmitted and received between
transmitting and receiving devices on a 1:1 basis.
System Link Delay
A function that adds a delay to the audio output of the CobraNet output side’s stack itself in order to adjust the
audio signal time difference generated at the audio reception point in the CobraNet connection between stacks.
Preset Memory
A function that allows the parameters of each filter (signal processing capable of being set in the DSP view
or Mixer view) installed in the speaker, various directivity control parameters set in the Beam Steering view,
CobraNet routing settings, group settings, etc. to be assembled and managed as “preset memory.” Up to
32 preset memories can be independently stored and accessed. Preset memory data is stored in both each
speaker and the project file as well.
Synchronization
The act of matching all the different parameters managed by both the speakers and SR-D8 PC Software.
Synchronization is mainly implemented the first time communication is initiated between the speakers and SRD8 PC Software.
PC
Refers to a Personal Computer in which the SR-D8 PC Software is installed.
SR-D8 PC Software
Software described in this manual and installed in a PC for use in setting up the SR-D8 speaker system.
Fault Status
The state in which audio signal can be directly input from the Analog 1 input terminal to a digital amplifier
without passing through the speaker’s internal CPU by shorting the terminals of a removable terminal block.
101
16.2. PC Software Screen Display

Floating Display
A view format in which the contents view is separated from the lower half of the main view to float over the main
screen as a different window. Further, the Mute All view is always shown in floating format if display operation
is performed.
Box
A box expressing each signal processing function (filter) in the DSP and Mixer views. Also referred to as a
function box.
Context Menu
This menu that appears when right-clicking on the system tree view, the DSP view or the Mixer view. When
an item on each view, stack, speaker or function box is right-clicked, a pop-up list showing currently available
operations for the selected item is displayed.
Pull-Down Menu
This menu appears on the screen when either the menu or individual buttons are selected (left-clicked).
Available operations or choices are displayed for the selected item or button.
Dialog
This screen is mainly displayed for setting input values or confirming operations. Click [OK] or [Yes] after
confirming the contents or input value. To abort or cancel an operation, click [Cancel] or [No]. (Buttons differ
depending on the dialog being displayed.)
Project
In the SR-D8 PC Software, stack or speaker configurations, preset memory contents, user levels, and operation
or error log settings are all managed together as a “project,” and stored on the PC hard drive or external storage
media (USB flash drive, SD card, etc.) connected to the PC. Stored projects can be independently loaded.

16.3. Signal Processing Functions
Auto Mix
A box that can set the gate and ducker functions for input channels in the Mixer view. To change their settings,
select the desired function tab in the contents view when the box is selected.
Gate Function
A function that can pass, attenuate, or cut the input signal, depending on the input signal level. The gate function
passes the signal when in the open state, and attenuates or cuts it when in the closed state. The gate switches
to open state if the input level exceeds the total level of the threshold level and a hysteresis value. Once open,
the gate closes again when the input level lowers the level that results from subtracting the hysteresis value
from the threshold level. Operations to open or close the gate control the ducker function.
Ducker Function
One of the auto-mixing functions that automatically adjusts each input channel gain depending on the input
signal level. When a signal exceeding the gate threshold level is received, the ducker function automatically
attenuates other input signals with a lower priority than the input channel.
16.4. System Functions
User Level
The authority classification for restricting operable items. Two levels are available: “Administrator” and “Operator.”
Security Settings
A function that prohibits settings from being changed using a PC (SR-D8 PC Software).
Perform settings for items for which security settings can be performed using a PC (SR-D8 PC Software).
Depending on the user level, 4 security levels can be set as Off/Low/Mid/High.
Box Write-Protection
A function that prohibits changes to box parameters in the DSP view using a PC (SR-D8 PC Software).
The settings for each box in the DSP view are performed using a PC (SR-D8 PC Software).
Depending on the user level, 4 prohibition levels can be set as Off/Low/Mid/High.
16.5. Terms Relating to Communication
Online State
The state that the PC (SR-D8 PC software) is communicating with the speakers.
Offline State
The state that the PC (SR-D8 PC software) is not communicating with the speakers.
Bulk Transmission
Transfer of individual parameters stored in a PC (SR-D8 PC Software) to speakers in communicable status
within the network.
Bulk Reception
Transfer of each parameter from all speakers in communicable status within the network to a PC (SR-D8 PC
Software). This function also sets speaker/stack configurations in the system tree view based on the transferred
setting contents.
103
16.6. Terms Relating to Beam Steering
Beam Steering
In the SR-D8 PC Software, the term “Beam Steering” refers to an operation function called audio “directivity
control,” which changes the vertical angle and width of the beam emitted from the SR-D8 speaker system. The
SR-D8 PC Software allows this “directivity control” to be independently set or simulated for individual stacks.
Beam
Represents the audio direction emitted from the SR-D8 speaker system. In the SR-D8 speaker system, up to 2
beams can be emitted per stack.
Beam Steering View
A screen view that is displayed when “Beam Steering” is selected from the operation view tab displayed
when the stack is selected. In this view, various parameters for Beam Steering can be set, including speaker
installation conditions, speaker installation space depth and beam emission angles.
Beam Steering Simulation View
Performs simulations based on various parameters set in the Beam Steering view, and graphically displays the
results by means of sound pressure distribution.
Beam Steering Graph View
Displays sound pressure graphs for audience settings. Nothing is displayed when audience is not set or
simulation is not being performed.
Setting Origin (Beam Steering View: Speaker Settings)
The location position that makes up the base for the speaker (stack) installation. This can be the front upper
side, front lower side, rear upper side or rear lower side of the speaker (stack).
Rear upper side
Front upper side
The front side of the speaker (stack)
Rear lower side
Front lower side
104
Installation Angle (Beam Steering View: Speaker Settings)
The installation angle for speakers (stacks). The angle formed when the speaker tilts forward against the
vertical line from the speaker (stack) installation base point is a negative angle, and the angle formed when
tilted backward is a positive angle. A zero-degree installation angle means that the speaker (stack) is installed
in alignment with the vertical line from the installation base point.
[Installation angle when the installation base point is the front upper side]
Setting origin
The front side of the speaker (stack)
Installation
angle
Beam Angle (Beam Steering View: Steering Settings)
An axial directional angle of the beam emitted from the speaker (stack). Because the speaker’s (stack’s) front
axial angle is zero degree, the beam angle is a negative angle when the speaker (stack) faces downward, and
a positive angle when the speaker (stack) faces upward.
Beam Width (Beam Steering View: Steering Settings)
Represents the width that the beam broadens when emitted from the speaker (stack) in the downward direction.
Settings are performed in such ways as what degree of width in the downward direction from the speaker
(stack) beam angle.
[Beam angle and beam width when the installation base point is the front upper side and the installation angle
is zero degree]
Usual beam (Beam width of 0°)
Beam angle
Beam axis
Beam width
Depth (Beam Steering View: Space Settings)
The depth of the speaker (stack) front direction in the space (place) where the speaker (stack) is installed.
Audience (Beam Steering: Audience Settings)
Represents the audience area installed in the space (place) where the speaker (stack) is installed. Performing
audience settings allows the sound pressure graph for the audience to be confirmed in the Beam Steering
Graph view.
