INFOCOMM PREVIEW: MEYER GALAXY
The new Meyer Sound Galileo Galaxy network platform will make its worldwide debut at InfoComm 2016 in Las Vegas. As the next generation of the Galileo processor line, Galaxy offers even more advanced processing power and networking standards.
Galaxy is the first Meyer Sound loudspeaker processor to be fully networkable, with multiple units sharing 24-bit/96k multi-channel audio via an AVB network. Maximum input count has been increased from six to eight for easier implementation of 7.1 systems, and a new generation of FPGA-based processing with 96k floating point resolution delivers increased dynamic range, a lower noise floor, and super-low latency of 0.6ms analogue in to analogue out.
“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.”
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 equalisation tools. The first three versions, Galaxy 816, Galaxy 816-AES3, and Galaxy 408, will ship September 2016.
