Meyer Sound introduces Galileo Callisto 616
The Galileo Callisto 616 array processor has been devised to drive and align Meyer Sound loudspeaker array systems. The 2U height, rack-mountable Callisto 616 includes six inputs (analogue, AES/EBU or mixed) and 16 analogue outputs with full matrix mixing and routing for driving systems of any size and a digital matrix processor. Compass control software provides comprehensive remote control via Ethernet connection of all the parameters from a Mac or Windows-based computer.
Designed to complement the Californian manufacturer’s M Series and Leo-M arrays, the Callisto 616 features delay integration for aligning loudspeaker arrays, user defined shaping filters and simultaneous low- and high-pass filters for subwoofer control. The Callisto 616 offers an extensive equalisation architecture that includes U-shaping equalisation, comprised of five bands with adjustable slopes, widths and gain, together with a 10-band complementary phase parametric filtering, both available on outputs. TruShaping equalisation, comprising of four bands of equalisation with adjustable widths and gain is available on the inputs.
Equalisation parameters are edited in the Compass control software, with numeric entry or by graphically dragging frequency bands. Parameters can be adjusted while viewing multiple layers of equalisation in a composite graphic plot to achieve the ideal equalisation curve.
The Callisto 616 features full digital operation with fixed latency across all output channels regardless of any applied processing. It can also be connected directly to the SIM 3 audio analyser, providing complete measurement and control for integrated audio systems.
