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.

The DVR-LB1 lockbox has been designed specifically for the peace of mind of those who require DVRs be installed in specific settings that may be prone to theft or vandalism. High-end electronics have become a staple in today's security, CI, residential, and commercial marketplaces. As these expensive technologies and equipment, including DVRs, find homes in more and more commercial and professional settings, additional security measures need to be taken to insure these electronics are not harmed or stolen. The DVR-WA are a pair of heavy duty, easy-to-install DVR lockbox wall mounting arms designed to work in conjunction with VMP's acclaimed DVR-LB1 and DVR-LB3 DVR lockboxes. The DVR-WA allows the installer and end-user to free up much needed shelf space, as well as provide for additional security measures.
