Meyer Sound will unveil three new sound reinforcement solutions next week at Prolight + Sound 2016. The products include the MJF-208 compact stage monitor, the MDM-5000 high-power distribution module, and the LYON-WXT extended vertical option.
The self-powered MJF-208 stage monitor incorporates the performance and reliability of the MJF-212A and the MJF-210 into a compact, lightweight package. The monitor delivers a strong power-to-size ratio and low distortion for applications that do not demand the higher output levels of the MJF-210 or the MJF-212A.
“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,” said Luke Jenks, Meyer Sound’s director of product management. “With a self-powered stage monitor, the amp package is always the same. The MJF-208 offers a performance consistency that passive monitors just can’t guarantee.”
The MDM-5000 is a rack-mount unit for quick connection and efficient distribution of AC power, audio signals, and RMS to LEO 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 is available in CE- and UL-compliant versions for worldwide use.
“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,” explained Jenks. “By standardising this distribution, the module will significantly simplify cross-rental applications, and serve as an ideal tool for streamlining LEO Family system setups.”
The final product launch for Meyer Sound at Prolight + Sound is the LYON-WXT, an extended vertical coverage option for the LYON-W line array loudspeaker. The WXT option extends the vertical coverage of the LYON-W from nine to 15°, giving the lowest cabinet in the array a wider splay angle to achieve uniform coverage at a steeper downward angle. A principal application for the WXT option will be for 360° arena shows, where this extended vertical coverage reduces the number of line array and front-fill loudspeakers required.
