Meyer Sound said that at this week’s InfoComm 08, the company will demo its new UPQ-1P wide coverage loudspeaker in Ballroom III at the nearby Renaissance Hotel. Demos will be held Thursday June 19 at 2 p.m., 3 p.m. and 4 p.m.
Company officials called the UPQ-1P a new high-powered addition to the UltraSeries product family, incorporating a 15-inch neodymium magnet low frequency driver, a 4-inch diaphragm compression driver coupled to an 80-degree by 50-degree constant directivity horn, and 1,275 watts of peak amplifier power. With its integral pole mount receptacle and flexible rigging options, the UPQ-1P adapts to permanent theater and nightclub installations as well as portable AV systems.
At InfoComm itself, Meyer will debut is the Galileo 616 AES, a new version of the processor for the Galileo loudspeaker management system. Galileo 616 AES introduces new digital outputs and provides improved flexibility in system design, according to the company. Eliminating the need for another set of converters, the new processor can drive additional Galileo processors via their AES/EBU inputs through a digital connection between the units.
Meyer will also preview Galileo’s Compass 2.1 control software, which is slated for release late summer. Compass 2.1 features a tabbed interface and better linking capabilities.
