    South Korea’s Busan Exhibition and Convention Center (BEXCO) has extended the versatility of its exhibition space with the installation of two steerable Meyer Sound CAL 32 column array loudspeakers. Formerly suited only for hosting floor exhibits, the room now can accommodate a variety of meetings, lectures, presentations, and performances that demand controlled coverage and highly intelligible audio reinforcement for both speech and music. CAL will be demonstrated live at InfoComm 2015 in the Meyer Sound demo room 203A. Prior to… View this story

    St. Patrick’s Catholic Church has served its community in this Washington, D.C. suburb since 1968. The 1000-seat room’s acoustics have always been a challenge, explains Gene Ingham of systems integrator RCI Systems, the company behind the installation of the church’s new Renkus-Heinz Iconyx loudspeakers. “The sanctuary has an A-frame architecture with 35-foot ceilings and lots of windows,” Ingham observes. “The altar area is in the center, the choir is on one side with the organ and piano, and most of… View this story

    An interesting development has occurred in recent times: folks have become much more aware that the acoustic space plays a critical role with respect to the final sound of the room. In other words, unless you “fix the room,” changing the sound system may in fact not solve the problem at all. And truth be known, bringing the room acoustics up to an “acceptable level” is often actually easier than setting up a PA system!  Testing One, Two, Clap Go… View this story

    This article is provided by Church Audio Video.   Acoustical treatment is something that most studio engineers are quite familiar with. However, many church audio technicians have only a passing understanding of the subject. So rather than telling you what treatment you need for your space, here’s a primer on different types of acoustical treatment. Acoustical treatment is the method by which we control reflections in a space to create the ideal acoustical profile, thereby enhancing audio perception. A reflection… View this story

    Proud of its German heritage, New Ulm, Minnesota, boasts German-style breweries, a 45-foot-tall glockenspiel, a monument to a 9th century German hero-and St. Paul’s Lutheran Church. This stately brick church features traditional architecture, with high ceilings, wooden pews, and plenty of plaster and glass. The acoustics are ideal for organ and choir, but speech intelligibility was poor with its old, cobbled-together sound system. That has since been resolved with Fulcrum Acoustics loudspeakers. When the church began adding contemporary music to… View this story

    With its new Meyer Sound CAL column array loudspeakers, the Grand Elysee Hotel in Hamburg, Germany can now provide clarity for both speech and music presentations in the Spiegelsaal (Mirror Room) while also solving a design challenge for the large and reflective space. “With CAL, speech intelligibility at the far back of the full room is excellent,” reports Stefan Gurr, head of event and communication technology for the Grand Elysee Hotel. “Guests have commented that it is very easy to… View this story

    The Venetian is an event and reception facility in Northern New Jersey for weddings and other formal events. The hall’s majestic décor, with its marble walls and flooring, is truly impressive in its grandeur. That same architecture has also long been a source of frustration for any event coordinator whose plans include musical entertainment. The Venetian recently underwent a large-scale overhaul of its audio, video, and lighting systems, designed and implemented by Paramus, NJ-based Synapse Audio Visual Designs. Among the… View this story
