Meyer Sound Introduces Galileo GALAXY at InfoComm in Las Vegas

Next-Generation, Networked Audio System Delivers High Dynamic Range and Low Latency

The new Meyer Sound Galileo GALAXY™ network platform made its worldwide debut at InfoComm 2016 in Las Vegas. As the next generation of the Galileo® processor line, GALAXY offers the most advanced processing power and networking standards available. Visit the Meyer Sound booth to learn about the company’s leading-edge approach towards technological innovation in sound reinforcement. In demo room N112, “Real World SPL” will present the company’s approach towards measuring SPL (sound pressure level) to achieve real-world results. The importance of headroom and low distortion will be demonstrated through a Meyer Sound cinema system.

Galileo GALAXY Network Platform


Showing for the first time anywhere, the Galileo GALAXY network platform marks a quantum leap forward for the Galileo platform that was first launched in 2005. GALAXY is the first Meyer Sound loudspeaker processor to be fully networkable, with multiple units sharing 24-bit/96 kHz multi-channel audio via an AVB network. Maximum input count has been increased from six to eight for easier implementation of 7.1 systems, and a new generation of FPGA-based processing with 96 kHz floating point resolution delivers increased dynamic range, a lower noise floor, and super-low latency of 0.6ms analog in to analog out.

“GALAXY is a brand new platform, and it again moves the proven Galileo concept to the forefront of digital loudspeaker processing,” says John McMahon, Meyer Sound’s vice president of solutions and strategy. “It stands alone in its field in terms of open-source networkability, pristine audio performance, and meticulous engineering of the filtering algorithms.”

Other features new to GALAXY include a delay matrix, easier integration with Crestron and other third-party controllers, a word clock input on the AES3 version, and improved equalization tools. The first three versions, GALAXY 816, GALAXY 816-AES3, and GALAXY 408, will ship September 2016.
