Galileo 616 AES designed for flexibility

AUTHOR: Inavate

Meyer Sound says it has boosted flexibility with its Galileo 616 AES. The company claims, as a master unit, the 616 AES can drive additional Galileo processors via AES/EBU inputs.

Sixteen matrix outputs are available digitally in the Galileo 616 AES hardware. The first eight output connectors are stereo AES/EBU sources and operate at 96 KHz, 24-bit rate. Connectors 9-16 remain available as analogue outputs, driven from high-resolution 96 KHz, 24-bit A/D converters. All functions can be controlled from the front panel and remotely using Compass software.

Using TCP/IP protocol, the Galileo hardware/software system is claimed to provide all of the facilities required to drive and align sound reinforcement systems employing multiple zones.
