Meyer Sound Ships Steerable CAL Column Array Loudspeaker (with Video)

CAL is a digitally steerable column array product in which all high-frequency and low-frequency drivers are tight-packed in a bi-amped configuration and are individually amplified and processed.

Meyer Sound has begun delivery of its CALT column array loudspeaker this

summer. Available in three models, CAL is a self-powered installation
product that introduces an unprecedented level of vocal clarity in even the
most reverberant environments. The recipients of the first shipments include
a collegiate stadium and an indoor auditorium in the US as well as an
Australian live performing arts centre.

"CAL is a digitally steerable column array product in which all
high-frequency and low-frequency drivers are tight-packed in a bi-amped
configuration and are individually amplified and processed," says John
McMahon, executive director of operations and digital products at Meyer
Sound. "These engineering details are essential in enabling the beam control
needed for a human voice to cut through a highly reverberant acoustic
space."

CAL's vertical beam can be angled up or down in one-degree increments up to
30 degrees to aim only at target coverage areas without exciting an entire
architectural space. Two of the CAL versions, CAL 64 and CAL 96, also
include beam-splitting capabilities for applications where a balcony wall
may cause undesired reflections.
