Meyer’s Galileo GALAXY is a groundbreaking audio-processing and loudspeaker-management unit built for their LEO family of products. Using Meyer’s proprietary software in combination with the GALAXY allows engineers to control equalization and delay across loudspeakers throughout a venue, making it a tool for anything from touring shows to professional cinema settings.
From the Manufacturer
The Galileo GALAXY Network Platform is an audio processing and loudspeaker management tool that offers comprehensive control of Meyer Sound loudspeaker systems. Leveraging open‑source AVB technology along with powerful audio processing, GALAXY processors provide complete system management in one platform, making it an ideal choice for a full range of applications from touring to installs.
The GALAXY processor is Milan certified, providing plug‑and‑play network interoperability with other Milan-certified devices via AAF and CRF AVB streams. Milan certification guarantees all Milan audio over the AVB network will arrive on-time with a fixed latency. Milan AVB reserves network bandwidth which cannot be preempted by other network traffic. Milan-certified GALAXY processors support the specified network redundancy— guaranteeing interoperability with other Milan devices.
Users can control the GALAXY processor using Compass Control Software (hosted on a Mac or PC) or via the Compass Go iPad App. Compass Control Software provides a complete toolkit for audio routing, system optimization, processing, and monitoring. Its Product Integration feature ensures the phase characteristics of different loudspeaker models are matched when they are combined in the same system, providing the most coherent summation possible.
The GALAXY processor features a 96 kHz audio processing sample rate, and the A/D and D/A converters are 24 bits/96 kHz. Processing tools for inputs include gain, delay, 5-band parametric EQ, and 5-band U-Shaping EQ. Output processing tools include gain, delay, polarity reversal, 10-band parametric EQ, 5-band U-Shaping EQ, Low-Mid Beam Control (LMBC), atmospheric correction, and simultaneous high- and low-pass filters.
Built-in summing and delay matrices allow users to easily assign gain and delay values at each routing cross point, enabling any single loudspeaker to serve as an output for multiple, independently processed input signals.
