Meyer Sound Galileo Callisto 616 AESMeyer Sound has released the Galileo Callisto 616 AES primary array processor, a hardware and software system for driving and aligning Meyer Sound loudspeaker array systems.

Combining alignment tools and delay integration with a suite of digital AES3 and analogue inputs and outputs, the Callisto 616 AES serves digital audio to satellite Meyer Sound processors, including Galileo Callisto 616 processors and Galileo 616 and 408 processors.

The two-space, rack-mounted unit offers six inputs, 16 digital outputs with eight mirrored analogue outputs, and a full digital matrix processor. Working in tandem with the Compass control software, Callisto 616 AES is optimised to manage loudspeaker systems and shape overall system response. The U-Shaping equalisation comprises five bands with adjustable slope, width and gain. Five bands of complementary phase parametric filters are available on each output. An additional five bands of parametric filters and standard TruShaping equalisation are available on each input.

Additional features include delay integration for automatic alignment of Meyer Sound line arrays, and atmospheric correction to maintain high frequency response regardless of changes in temperature and humidity.

Callisto 616 AES employs ADA conversion at 96kHz, 24-bit resolution. Internal processing is at 96kHz with 32-bit floating-point resolution. Latency is fixed across all output channels regardless of processing applied, and dedicated connectors are provided for seamless integration of Meyer Sound’s SIM 3 audio analyser.

‘The Callisto 616 AES adds a new level of control in commissioning sound systems as it allows engineers to precision calibrate individual elements or zones using the satellite processors, and then they can use the AES primary processor at FOH to make further adjustments to the overall system using tools like U-Shaping,’ says Meyer Sound Digital Products Manager, Todd Meier. ‘Together with the Compass control interface, this pairing provides the ultimate FOH system mastering tool and makes tuning sound systems much more efficient.’

Galileo Callisto 616 AES will begin shipping early February 2014.
