Overture VR is an innovative new design in the field of diffusive surfaces for performing arts theaters. These units provide a mobile, collapsible diffusive surface that can be used to transform the sonic profile of a performance stage. Standing at 16’ in height in its performance position (shorter heights possible), each Overture VR unit is comprised of a rugged, powder coated steel frame upon which diffusive wood panels are mounted. The panels are removable and interchangeable to achieve diffusion along either the horizontal or vertical plane, or to substitute a different diffusive RPG panel to suit the acoustical needs of a particular application.
The Overture VR’s tubular steel frame is powered coated in a dark olive, matte green finish. The wood surfaces come in a wide variety of finishes, including wood veneer, laminates, melamine coatings and painted surfaces. See some of the options displayed under the Finishes tab below.
The Overture VRs arrives with the wood diffusive units separate from the structural framework. The panels are pre-grooved to slide onto the support brackets on the frame – the Overture VR is then ready to use. See the Operations Manual in the Technical Data tab for basic operations and safety instruction. The units should not be operated without prior review and instruction.

The Overture VR combines a diffusive wood surface with an elegant movable structural frame to create a truly unique stage experience. The diffusive surface is designed to provide a more uniform sound field through mid and high frequencies while the natural wood construction of the unit limits the amount of sound energy that is removed by absorption. This device can be used for small or large scale applications to transform the experience of the musicians, the conductor and the audience.
Live performances vary widely in terms of style and instrumentation. Different performance styles often have different acoustical demands from their performance space.
RPG has developed the Overture VR system to allow stage technicians to change the acoustical profile of a stage. By mounting a series of diffusive surfaces to a movable frame, an array of Overture VR units can be combined to effectively customize a space to diffuse and reflect sound to match the desired acoustical profile for any performance style.
