Meyer Sound has announced the new self-powered LYON linear line array system, the newest addition to the LEO family. LYON will make its debut at the ISE trade show in Amsterdam in early February (booth 1-F90).
Incorporating the technology of LEO in a lighter and more compact package, LYON extends the advantages of linear self-powered systems to a broader range of venues and applications.
“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 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 Galileo Callisto 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 hardware and software solution for driving and aligning Meyer loudspeaker array systems. Designed as a mastering tool for delivering digital audio, the Callisto processor combines versatile alignment tools like U-Shaping 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 AVB interoperability in a live sound environment. Products in the demo will include a Meyer Sound CAL column array loudspeaker and D-Mitri digital audio platform, an Avid S3L live sound mix system and 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.
