Meyer Sound’s Constellation On Display
Room calibration system billed as star attraction at InfoComm 2023.
Constellation by Meyer Sound, widely recognised as the premier system for active acoustics, will be featured in one of the most extensive live demonstrations of the technology implemented at a trade show. Occupying the lion’s share of a large exhibit room (W231ABC), a Constellation system will create natural-sounding acoustical environments for the live vocal and instrumental music performed in the demo sessions.
InfoComm 2023 will be held at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL with exhibits open June 14-16. The Meyer Sound demo room sessions, which also will highlight the new 2100-LFC low-frequency control element and the Spacemap Go spatial sound design and mixing tool, will be held June 13-16.
“We set exceptionally high standards for our demo room presentations,” notes Meyer Sound Senior Vice President John McMahon. “This year, we’re setting the bar even higher with a comprehensive Constellation listening experience.”
Constellation Director for Meyer Sound Pierre Germain says it’s been a few years since a large Constellation demo system has been implemented at a trade show. “We think it’s vital that consultants and integrators experience why Constellation is still regarded as the ‘gold standard’ in active acoustic systems. While some other systems — particularly those offering only in-line reverberators — may come in at a lower bid, it’s still money not well spent if the client is disappointed with the results.”
Unique in the industry since 2006, Constellation is a dedicated system for active acoustics with all components and services supplied by Meyer Sound, including a dedicated acoustics team leading the design and commissioning. Constellation has transformed hundreds of venues worldwide through temporary installs and touring systems.
“Constellation is respected and trusted by the most demanding and discerning clientele worldwide,” adds John McMahon. “We have a rigorous set of standards that must be met for every project, and the difference is appreciated by everybody who has knowingly or unknowingly experienced Constellation acoustical environments.”
The demo room system also will offer the first trade show opportunity to experience in person the power and clarity of the 2100-LFC low-frequency control element. Incorporating technologies introduced in the phenomenally successful PANTHER large-format linear line array loudspeaker, including direct connection to Milan AVB networks, the 2100-LFC employs a single 21-inch driver and a new Class D power amplifier to produce prodigious acoustic output from 30 Hz to 125 Hz from a relatively compact and lightweight enclosure.
Adjoining the demo space will be the popular Sonic Lounge, offering an opportunity for attendees to relax and enjoy light refreshments while engaging with Meyer Sound sales and engineering staff. Meyer Sound also will have a floor booth, #5143, with the Tech Bar open for hands-on interaction with Meyer Sound’s suite of digital tools including the award-winning Nebra software platform.
Across the demo space, Sonic Lounge, and booth presence, attendees at this year’s InfoComm will be able to experience adaptive acoustics, loudspeakers from Meyer Sound’s ULTRA-X, Intelligent DC, and LFC ranges, spatial audio products, Milan connectivity, and have the opportunity to meet members of the worldwide teams supporting and developing these class-leading solutions.
“This year’s InfoComm will reveal a vision of Meyer Sound’s future, a vision that is rooted in the DNA of the company,” continues McMahon. “We put exceptional effort into the design and craftsmanship of all our products. We are constantly striving to apply the latest science to further the art of sound reproduction. This has been a lifetime quest of John Meyer, and the result is a product line that sets industry benchmarks across nearly all market verticals. The latest developments can be auditioned this year in Orlando.”
On June 15, from 5-6 pm, the Meyer Sound demo room also will host a presentation by the Avnu Alliance on the theme “What is Milan and Why.” The session will review case studies of Milan applications and offer hands-on opportunities for learning the functions and benefits of Milan-based networks.
As part of InfoComm’s extensive education program, Meyer Sound Director of System Optimization Bob McCarthy will present Designing Sound Systems to Deliver a Successful Immersive Experience on Tuesday, June 13 from 2:30-3:30 pm in room W311CD.
