Nexo and Yamaha in demo duo

Yamaha Music Europe and Nexo conducted the first official demo of an STM Series system, while promising deeper Dante integration between the PA and CL Series consoles.

Nexo has just conducted the first ‘official’ audio demo of a full STM Series PA, its flagship ‘modular’ sound system that PSNEurope was able to report on exclusively in February. Joining forces with Yamaha Music Europe, the sister companies used the JTSE Live trade show event in Paris to demo Nexo’s latest concert sound loudspeakers on a Dante network with Yamaha CL Series digital control. At the Docks de Paris, the demo featured a system with six M46 main and six B112 bass cabinets flown either side of the stage and four S118 subs ground-stacked per side. Nexo and Yamaha have developed the NXDT104 Dante network card which is an option for the Nexo Universal Amp Rack (NUAR) which powers the STM Series. The NXDT104 achieves Dante network protocol compatibility for CL Series mixing consoles and Nexo’s NXAMP, making it possible for CL consoles to communicate with the NXAMP via Dante. The Yamaha group is working towards even deeper integration that allows NXAMP discovery and patching operations, currently requiring a computer running the Dante Controller software application, to be carried out directly from the touch screen displays of CL series consoles. That functionality will become available with CL series firmware update V1.5, to be released in January of 2013. Yoshi Tsugawa, CEO of Nexo commented, “We intend to take all operations and processes that are troublesome, time-consuming or complex, and make them fast, easy, assured, and safe. That’s the value were aiming for in all Yamaha and Nexo systems, and this development marks another step in that direction. By being keenly aware of our customers’ needs and deepening our technical cooperation, Yamaha and Nexo are determined to offer important innovations and increased advantages into the future.”
