This year’s ProLight+Sound Expo sees a bumper crop of new product introductions for NEXO, covering all aspects of sound reinforcement – networking, amplification and system processing, and, most importantly, the first sighting of NEXO’s STM Series of high-specification loudspeaker cabinets.
The STM Series is NEXO’s new proposition for the modern touring and rental company, the first scalable modular line array on the market. Its concept combines the best of NEXO Alpha functionality with the technical innovation of NEXO GEO waveguide designs to deliver a system that is both super-powerful, super-flexible and easy to use, and might actually make its owners some money! Scale Through Modularity (STM) is NEXO’s strapline, describing the STM’s ability to scale up or down to suit event audiences from 1,000 to 100,000. There are four new loudspeaker cabinets in the STM Series, and these will be showcased at PL+S in ‘road-ready’ format, together with new dual-voltage NXAMP4x4 power amplification and innovative digital patchbay and monitoring solutions.
On Stand M80, the NEXO ‘village’ will have plenty of entertainment for visitors. The entire NEXO R&D team is coming to town; in a purpose-built lecture theatre, the engineers will be making on-the-hour presentations about different aspects of the STM Series project, both software and hardware. In the NS-1 ‘software café’, visitors can experiment with NEXO’s comprehensive modelling software, exploring the performance in virtual environments of the new STM products as well as long-established favourites like the PS Series and GEO S.
