Meyer Sound’s New Nebra Software Helps Create a Single Integrated Solution

Meyer Sound (opens in new tab) has introduced Nebra, a new software platform that brings together multiple tools for specific tasks into a single integrated solution. The initial release is focused on fast and intuitive connectivity for endpoints in Milan AVB networks, including Meyer Sound’s PANTHER large-format linear line array loudspeaker, three ULTRA-X series point source loudspeakers, and the USW-112P compact subwoofer. Nebra also provides comprehensive system monitoring directly via the AVB network or, for other Meyer Sound products, through the existing RMS network via the RMServer. Nebra will also provide connectivity for Meyer Sound’s Galileo GALAXY Network Platform and for third-party network devices using the Milan protocol.

Nebra’s connectivity tools are designed for fast, trouble-free configuration and connection of complex Milan-based audio systems. “Many current audio-over-IP solutions are heavily text-based,” noted Andy Davies, Meyer Sound’s senior product manager. “Here, by displaying connections and monitoring in a clear visual layout, the system overview is much easier to understand. Connections are shown as graphical wires offering a clear picture of the system, while device icons change color to quickly identify any potential points of failure.”

Nebra leverages the latest in sensor fusion technology to simplify the task of monitoring large and highly complex networked audio systems. Nonsense system health information is collected from all connected devices, with sensor data combined from multiple sources and displayed in one simple summary.

“A ‘traffic light’ indicator in the corner of the screen constantly displays overall system status,” Davies continued, “so all the user needs to see is that one green box to know everything is fine. In addition, critical system messages are brought to the user’s attention via banner alerts, so there is no need to constantly review the status of every device. If there is a warning, Nebra directs the user swiftly to the source of the problem.”

Nebra is a stand-alone solution for all Milan-based devices. For Meyer Sound loudspeakers using RMS technology, Nebra functions in parallel with Compass control software.
