Meyer Sound CAL becomes first AVnu-certified loudspeaker13 January 2015
Meyer Sound has announced that its CAL column array loudspeakers are the first loudspeaker products to receive the AVnu certification by the AVnu Alliance.
This certification is the global seal given to devices that have implemented the IEEE AVB (audio-video bridging) standards and passed AVnu Alliance’s rigorous testing for interoperability and compliance.
Meyer Sound’s director of product management, Luke Jenks, said: “Meyer Sound embraces technology that yields superior audio performance and operating simplicity for our customers. By aggressively addressing the issue of interoperability through AVnu certification, we have taken an important step to help customers create end-to-end AV networks that are easier to plan and less costly to install.”
The AVnu certification programme is conducted by the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL), a third-party testing house that has also worked with the Wi-Fi Alliance and other industry consortia.
Other products that have received AVnu certification include the AVB hardware and software reference platform from XMOS and switches from Extreme Networks.
Heard in venues such as California Memorial Stadium, the NFL Carolina Panthers’ Bank of America Stadium, Musikverein in Austria, and Konzerthaus Berlin, CAL is designed to introduce high vocal clarity in even the most reverberant environments and provide exceptional headroom for music and speech reinforcement.
