Las Vegas, NV (June 1, 2016)—Meyer Sound will debut its Galileo Galaxy network platform—the next generation of the Galileo processor line—next week at InfoComm 2016 in Las Vegas.
Showing for the first time anywhere, the Galileo Galaxy network platform is the first Meyer Sound loudspeaker processor to be fully networkable, with multiple units sharing 24-bit/96 kHz multi-channel audio via an AVB network. Maximum input count has been increased from six to eight for implementation of 7.1 systems, and a new generation of FPGA-based processing with 96 kHz floating point resolution reportedly delivers increased dynamic range, a lower noise floor and latency of 0.6ms analog in to analog out.
Other features new to Galaxy include a delay matrix, easier integration with Crestron and other third-party controllers, a word clock input on the AES3 version and improved equalization tools. The first three versions, Galaxy 816, Galaxy 816-AES3, and Galaxy 408, will ship September 2016.
“Galaxy is a brand-new platform, and it again moves the proven Galileo concept to the forefront of digital loudspeaker processing,” says John McMahon, Meyer Sound’s vice president of solutions and strategy. “It stands alone in its field in terms of open-source networkability, pristine audio performance, and meticulous engineering of the filtering algorithms.”
Also at InfoComm, Meyer Sound’s demo room, N112, a demo entitled “Real World SPL” will present content on cinema loudspeaker models, including the HMS-15. The 60-seat cinema installation will include a 30-foot screen and 4K projection, and will preview Meyer Sound’s expanded focus on private home cinema installations. Demos will run on odd hours from 11:00am to 3:00pm on Tuesday and 9:00am to 3:00pm Wednesday to Friday.
Meanwhile, at the Meyer Sound booth (C9925), numerous products will be featured, including the new MJF-208 compact stage monitor and MDM-5000 high-power distribution module making their North American debuts.
