Meyer Sound has announced the self-powered LYONT linear sound reinforcement system, the newest addition to the LEOT Family of linear loudspeaker systems.
Incorporating the technology of the LEO Family in a lighter and
self-powered systems to a broader range of venues and applications. LYON
will make its debut at the ISE trade show in Amsterdam.
"With the LEO system, we have shown how a system that stays linear across
all frequencies and at very high sound levels can provide a whole new
listening experience for everything from the New York Philharmonic to
Bassnectar," says John Meyer, Meyer Sound's CEO and co-founder. "By
combining this high level of linearity with a more flexible package, LYON
will open up many more opportunities for listeners to experience the
performance advantages of a linear system."
LYON linear line array loudspeakers are available in two versions: the
LYON-M main line array loudspeaker and the LYON-W wide-coverage line array
loudspeaker. Complemented by the 1100-LFC low-frequency control element and
the GalileoR CallistoT loudspeaker management system, the LYON-M can anchor
a powerful system for installations in arenas and large auditoriums, as well
as tours and festivals. The LYON-W can serve as down fills to augment a
LYON-based system. Both LYON versions can be used to provide supplemental
coverage in a LEO system.
At ISE, Meyer Sound will also show the recently announced Galileo Callisto
616 AES primary array processor, a powerful hardware and software solution
for driving and aligning Meyer Sound loudspeaker array systems. Designed as
a mastering tool for delivering digital audio, the Callisto processor
combines versatile alignment tools like U-ShapingT equalization and delay
integration with a full suite of AES3 analog and digital inputs and outputs.
As part of the InfoComm education program at ISE, Jeff Koftinoff, Meyer
Sound embedded systems and signal processing architect, will present
"Deploying Large Scale AVB Networks" on February 6.
On the AVnu Alliance pavilion, AVB-capable products from Meyer Sound, Avid,
and Extreme Networks will be featured in a live demo to show the power of
AVB interoperability in a live sound environment. Products in the demo will
include a Meyer Sound CALT column array loudspeaker and D-MitriR digital
audio platform, an Avid S3L live sound system and Avid Pro Tools 11 running
on a laptop, as well as a switch from the Extreme Networks Summit series.
Other AVnu Alliance member companies participating in the pavilion include
Barco, Biamp, and Harman. Visit Hall 7 booth H195 to learn more.
