Ocean Park Hong Kong is partnering with Meyer Sound to stage the 15th edition of Asia’s largest Halloween-themed event.
A LEOPARD linear sound reinforcement system and D-Mitri digital audio platform lead a lineup of Meyer Sound systems to bring utmost sonic immersion and push the scare factor for the park’s fear-loving guests.
“To bolster our iconic Halloween celebration on its 15th anniversary, we decided to elevate the scary experience to new heights for our guests by exploring different sound effect treatments,” says Jacky Chan, technical manager of Ocean Park Hong Kong.
“The project is challenging because we want to use sound to inspire an intense fear in our guests, independent of scary visuals. Meyer Sound’s sophisticated D-Mitri platform, coupled with the company’s experience with international performances in Broadway and Las Vegas, allow us to achieve our desired outcome.”
One of the festival’s most popular attractions, the Hellympics live show features an immersive 5.1 surround sound system. The system is anchored by LEOPARD line array loudspeakers and 900-LFC and 1100-LFC low-frequency control elements, with signal distribution provided by a D-Mitri digital audio platform. In addition, D-Mitri drives the sound effects in the haunted house H15 presented by Yahoo! Hong Kong. H15 follows the visitors’ afterlife journey as a “corpse bearer” leads them from room to room while the guests are strapped to a mortuary bed on wheels.
The LEOPARD line array system is the newest and smallest member of the Meyer Sound LEO Family. LEOPARD boasts tremendous power-to-size ratio with ultra-low distortion. With LEOPARD, visitors to Ocean Park Halloween Fest will experience a level of sonic impact and detail like never before.
Audio Dynamic, Meyer Sound’s Hong Kong dealer, provides audio equipment and design support for the attractions.
Ocean Park Halloween Fest 2015 will run through November 1.
