Meyer Sound Introduces Cinema Experience—Delivering Power and Clarity to Cinema Sound

Meyer Sound has announced the new Cinema Experience line of products that redefine the sonic quality for applications ranging from sound design to dubbing to exhibition, while providing a smooth translation across the various venues. Leveraging the company’s 30 years of expertise in reproducing powerful, low-distortion sound, Meyer Sound’s Cinema Experience can faithfully reproduce a soundtrack with the punch and dynamics to hold a viewer’s attention and make a movie come alive.

Developed in collaboration with the top audio engineers in the cinema industry, Meyer Sound’s Cinema Experience features the Acheron screen channel loudspeakers designed to provide optimal performance behind perforated screens. Along with surrounds, subwoofers, and digital tools, the Cinema Experience provides a fully integrated system that offers a consistent, linear platform for creating the ultimate 21st-century sound experience for today’s audiences.

“In order to compete with expanding entertainment options at home, cinema exhibitors must offer a superior level of sound quality that can excite the audience,”? notes John Meyer, co-founder and CEO of Meyer Sound. “With new digital soundtracks freed from the limitations of analog reproduction, cinema operators can create heightened experiences by upgrading to the power and transparency of Meyer Sound cinema systems.”?

Meyer Sound’s Cinema Experience features:

• Acheron 100 and Acheron 80: Screen Channel Loudspeakers

• Acheron LF: Bass Loudspeaker

• HMS-10: Cinema Surround Loudspeaker

• X-800C: High-Power Cinema Subwoofer

In addition to loudspeakers, Meyer Sound offers accurate acoustical prediction with MAPP Online Cinema; real-time system performance data provided by the optional RMSâ„¢ remote monitoring system; and calibration and alignment offered by the SIMA® 3 audio analyzer. The Galileoâ„¢ loudspeaker management system handles signal drive from a theatre’s cinema processor to built-in amplifiers within the self-powered loudspeakers.

Since Meyer Sound introduced the self-powered HD-1 studio monitor in 1989, recording engineers have relied on the extreme accuracy of the company’s technology. Today, Meyer Sound products are deployed in recording studios, sound design suites, and dubbing stages worldwide, including the Bay Area’s Skywalker Sound and American Zoetrope, where Meyer Sound systems based around the Acheron have been recently installed. Other Cinema Experience installations include the USC School of Cinematic Arts, as well as Atkinson Hall at University of California, San Diego. Meyer Sound systems have also been used in movie industry events, including the MPSE Sound Show presentation of “The Dark Knight”? in October and the 2009 Golden Reel Awards.

Meyer Sound products that have been approved by THX include Acheron 80 and 100 screen channel loudspeakers, CQ-1 loudspeaker, UPJ-1P VariOâ„¢ loudspeaker, HD-1 studio monitor, and X-800C subwoofer.

Meyer Sound is a member of the International Cinema Technology Association, Cinema Audio Society, and CineGrid.
