Berkeley, CA (November 8, 2004)–Meyer Sound Laboratories has introduced its Galileo 616 loudspeaker management system, a 6-input/16-output, fully digital matrix processor that collects in a single box all of the facilities required to drive and align sound reinforcement systems employing multiple zones. The device includes digital implementations of features developed by Meyer Sound for its analog processors, including atmospheric compensation.
The 2U processor can be used as a standalone device operated directly from its front panel, or in conjunction with a laptop or other personal computer via Ethernet (including wireless laptops, Windows or Macintosh, and tablet PCs), with full bidirectional communication.
The six inputs can be analog feeding 96 kHz/24-bit-capable A/D converters, or three AES/EBU pairs, or a mix of both, and full matrix operation allows any combination of mixing and routing from inputs to outputs.
The 16 outputs offer the line-driving capabilities. Features include the M Series array compensation functions of the LD-3 and a library of presets for various cabinets, along with interface with Meyer Sound’s SIM 3 analyzer. Metering, control encoders and buttons and an LCD display on the outside match with a monolithic, 1 GHz vector DSP architecture with a fixed low-latency performance and 32-bit floating-point resolution. The Galileo 616 also will introduce Low Frequency Beam Steering for widening low-frequency coverage patterns.
