ISE 2016: Meyer Sound to demo Constellation system

A Meyer Sound team of acousticians will demonstrate the capabilities of the company’s Constellation acoustic system at this year’s ISE show in Amsterdam.

Integrators and design consultants will have opportunities to demo the product every 30 minutes while asking questions of the manufacturer’s expert staff.

“The acoustics of a space define the critical baseline for sound in any AV installation,” said 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 optimise 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 is designed to precisely control reverberation time, early reflections, and other key parameters vital to the sonic clarity, warmth, and resonance of a space.

The patented Libra acoustic image system will also feature at ISE. A passive acoustical solution for spaces that works together with Constellation to create ‘the ideal sonic environment’, Libra combines sound absorptive properties with works of art created or selected by California photographer Deborah O’Grady.

Other Meyer Sound products at the show include 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 promises exceptional coverage control and sonic precision.

Meyer Sound will also show the LEOPARD linear sound reinforcement system – reviewed in our September 2015 issue – the newest and smallest member of the company’s LEO family of line array systems, which the company says 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.

Finally, 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 11 February at 2pm in Room D203.
