PL+S 2016: New products from Meyer Sound31 March 2016
With less than a week until this year’s Prolight + Sound, Meyer Sound have announced the launch of three new products that will make their debut at the Frankfurt show.
First on the list is the MJF-208 compact stage monitor, which the company says incorporates the performance and reliability of their MJF-212A and the MJF-210 monitors into a smaller, lightweight package. Measuring less than 13 inches and weighing less than 45 pounds, “the MJF-208 brings the well-known intelligibility and power of Meyer Sound’s stage monitors to applications where a small footprint and low profile are critical,” says Luke Jenks, Meyer Sound’s director of product management.
Next up is the MDM-5000 high-power distribution module (pictured); a rack-mount unit for connection and distribution of AC power, audio signals, and RMS to LEO family systems. Standard multicore connectors for audio and power are on the front panel, with discrete connectors on the rear for audio, RMS, and power.
“The MDM-5000 was created in response to requests we’ve received for a multi-use, ‘turnkey’ package for power and signal distribution to larger Meyer Sound systems,” explains Jenks. “By standardizing this distribution, the module will significantly simplify cross-rental applications, and serve as an ideal tool for streamlining LEO Family system setups.”
Finally, Meyer will be debuting the LYON-WXT; an extended vertical coverage option for the LYON-W wide-coverage line array loudspeaker. The WXT option extends the vertical coverage of the LYON-W from nine to 15 degrees, giving the lowest cabinet or two in the array a wider splay angle to achieve uniform coverage at a much steeper downward angle.
According to Meyer A principal application for the WXT option will be for 360-degree arena shows, where this extended vertical coverage reduces the number of line array and front-fill loudspeakers required.
