Meyer Sound showcases new audio technology that it says will transform live events for both listeners and audio professionals.
Nominated for a 2013 InAVation Award, Meyer Sound’s new CAL column array loudspeaker is designed to provide precise coverage control and speech clarity while minimising unwanted reflections. Live demonstrations of CAL and its beam steering capabilities showed visitors its suitability for stadiums and other acoustically challenging environments.
The CAL demo at ISE was controlled using an iPad interface and driven by the D-Mitri digital platform on an AVB (audio video bridging) network—the new non-proprietary networking standard for low-latency audio and video data transport.
Meanwhile, Galileo Callisto is a new signal processing and loudspeaker management system designed to make precision array calibration much faster and easier. New features in Callisto include a new U-Shaping filter that provides a sculpting tool for adjusting the gain, width, and slope; delay integration that offers a quick alignment tool to ensure a coherent summation when combining different loudspeaker elements; and simultaneous application of high- and low-pass filters in the output processing.
The recently expanded range of Meyer Sound 48 V, DC-powered solutions is also on display, including the UPJ-1XP, UPJunior-XP VariO and UPM-1XP loudspeakers, and the UMS-1XP subwoofer.
