AVnu Alliance certifies Meyer Sound’s Galaxy
WORLD: Meyer Sound has revealed that the AVnu Alliance has certified its Galileo Galaxy network platform as ‘fully compliant with the open AVB/TSN (Audio Video Bridging and Time-Sensitive Networking) networking protocols developed through IEEE’. The certification serves to provide assurance to consultants, system designers and rental companies by confirming that Galaxy based Meyer Sound systems can be integrated into larger networked A/V systems featuring components from multiple manufacturers.
Galaxy is the third generation of the American manufacturer’s Galileo loudspeaker processing technology with three versions available: Galileo Galaxy 408, 816 and 816-AES3. To earn the AVnu certification, the system underwent a stringent testing process that determined its seamless interoperability with compatible A/V systems based on the AVB/TSN protocols. Some of the testing was conducted in-house by Meyer Sound, while the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Lab (UNH-IOL), which serves as the AVnu Alliance’s approved testing partner, carried out the final testing.
‘Galaxy processors were designed from the outset to function as keystone components in the large-scale networked sound reinforcement systems of the future,’ stated Meyer Sound’s vice president of solutions and strategy, John McMahon. ‘For over a decade the Galileo platform has won acceptance as the “go-to” loudspeaker processing system, and now Galaxy’s AVnu certification ensures that these capabilities can be seamlessly integrated into networked systems encompassing the full spectrum of audio, video and show control functions.’
The manufacturer previously received AVnu Certification in 2014 for its CAL column array loudspeaker.
