Orlando, FL (March 8, 2005)–Visitors to Meyer Sound’s booth at the 25th NSCA Systems Integration Expo in Orlando this Thursday, March 10-Saturday March 12 will be treated to a close-up look at three new products–including one so new it doesn’t yet have a name. Meyer Sound has decided to enlist some help by tapping into the imaginations of its user community with a “name that loudspeaker!” contest. Visitors to the Meyer Sound booth will be invited to submit their ideas for the new loudspeaker’s name—the visitor who’s name is chosen will receive the very first production model that comes off the line and win a trip to California to see the Meyer Sound factory.
The never-before-shown “system mysterioso” is the newest addition to the popular MILO family of loudspeakers, which currently consists of the original MILO high-power curvilinear array loudspeaker, MILO 120 expanded coverage version and MILO 60 narrow coverage model. The new system presents a high-power, mid-sized option between the original MILO and the M2D compact curvilinear array cabinets. Though only nominally larger and heavier than the M2D, “mysterioso” offers significantly greater output power along with the smooth, extended high-frequency sound made famous by MILO.
Also making its worldwide debut at NSCA is the MVC-5 graduated vertical coverage loudspeaker. Functionally equivalent to five M1D ultra-compact curvilinear array loudspeakers housed in a single enclosure with fixed splay angles, the MVC-5 offers a ready-made solution for numerous corporate A-V applications, as well as fixed installations in transportation terminals, large public spaces, industrial settings, larger meeting rooms, and houses of worship.
The Galileo digital loudspeaker management system, introduced late last year at the AES show, makes its first NSCA appearance this year in Orlando. The complete system comprises the 6-input/16-output Galileo 616 processor and its companion Compass control software, which can run on laptops, tablets, or any other Windows or Macintosh OS computers. As Meyer Sound’s first fully digital audio processor, the Galileo 616 provides new levels of flexibility and power for optimizing and driving Meyer Sound loudspeaker systems of all sizes.
In addition to these debut offerings, Meyer’s NSCA booth will showcase current products in a variety of fixed-installation settings. The MM-4 miniature wide-range loudspeaker will be shown installed in church podium steps as part of the Worship Wall, a colorful display area featuring photos of recent church installations. The MM-4, along with the UPJ-1P compact VariO and UPM-1P ultra-compact wide coverage loudspeakers, also can be auditioned live in the booth’s theatre area.
The in-booth theatre will be a magnet for activity during the show, with regular presentations on products and technology. In between presentations, visitors are welcome to rest their feet and enjoy concert DVDs though the superb loudspeaker system.
Other booth highlights include the UPM-1P ultra-compact wide coverage loudspeaker flown inside its optional back can, a display showing the ever-expanding Meyer Sound factory, and product-focused displays for the M1D ultra-compact curvilinear array, the MILO high-power curvilinear array, and the 700-HP ultrahigh-power subwoofer.
Away from the booth, Meyer products and technologies will be featured in two programs in the NSCA Educational Track. Veteran system designer and alignment specialist Bob McCarthy will present a SIM3 Seminar on March 9 from 8 AM until noon, while Sound Solutions for 21st Century Worship will be presented by sound system designer Bill Platt of the Platt Design Group on March 12 (10 AM to noon).
