"The acoustics of a space define the critical baseline for sound in any AV installation," says John McMahon, Meyer Sound's vice-president of solutions and strategy. "With Constellation and complementary passive acoustical treatment, the design consultant and systems integrator can precisely define the acoustical character of a space to fully optimize the effect of music performance or voice communication. In addition, Constellation often reduces or even eliminates the need for direct amplification systems."
Employing a fully integrated approach to variable active acoustics, Constellation precisely controls reverberation time, early reflections, and other key parameters vital to the sonic clarity, warmth, and resonance of a space. Constellation is installed in performance venues throughout the world, and offers increased intelligibility in a number of corporate and university conferencing and teaching spaces. Louisiana State University, Jyske Bank headquarters in Denmark, and Enbridge in Calgary, Canada, are just a few examples of the systems in use globally.
The patented Libra acoustic image system will also be featured. A passive acoustical solution for spaces that works together with Constellation to create the ideal sonic environment, Libra beautifully unites the art and science of acoustics, combining sound absorptive properties with works of art created or selected by California photographer Deborah O'Grady.
Select Meyer Sound loudspeakers will be at the show including the CAL column array loudspeaker with advanced beam-steering technology. Selected for world-class venues from the Musikverein in Vienna and Konzerthaus Berlin to Berner Rathaus in Bern, Switzerland, CAL loudspeakers provide exceptional coverage control and sonic precision.
Meyer Sound will also show the Leopard linear sound reinforcement system, the newest and smallest member of the company's Leo Family of line array systems. Leopard has garnered worldwide acclaim for both permanent installations in houses of worship, sports arenas, and concert halls, and rental systems for concert touring and musical theatre.
As part of ISE's education programme, Richard Bugg, digital products solutions architect at Meyer Sound, will host an InfoComm Master Class on Digital Audio and Networking on Thursday, February 11 at 14:00 in room D203.
