InfoComm 2012: Meyer Sound to offer immersive audio experiences

US audio specialist Meyer Sound is heading to Vegas for the upcoming InfoComm 2012 show with the intention of providing a fully immersive experience for visitors to its booth at the Las Vegas Convention Centre.

In one of the venue’s larger meeting rooms (N110), Meyer Sound will set up the largest and most sophisticated multichannel surround system the company has ever assembled for a trade show. A special demo programme entitled ‘Surrounded in new York’ will combine the Constellation acoustic system and SpaceMap multichannel surround panning through the D-Mitri digital audio platform.

The live presentations will also offer a preview of the steering capabilities of the CAL column array loudspeaker and the linearity of the 1100-LFC low frequency control element; a new loudspeaker for low-end directional applications in large-scale tours and installations.

On the main show floor (booth C9717), the company will showcase its recently expanded range of low-voltage, self-powered solutions, which will be making their debut US appearance. These include three 48 V,DC-powered models: the UPJunior-XP VariO and UPM-1XP loudspeakers, as well as the UMS-1XP subwoofer.

As one of the first AVnu Alliance Promoter Members, Meyer Sound will join a number of other manufacturers in the alliance to show the importance of the AVB (Audio Video Bridging) networking standards. At the AVnu Alliance Pavilion (booth C11039), the Meyer Sound CAL column array loudspeaker will feature in the biggest AVB interoperability demonstration to date. Ellen Juhlin, digital products analyst at Meyer Sound, will lead two sessions on “AVB for Live Events” on the AVnu Alliance booth.

Additional education opportunities at the show facilitated by Meyer Sound include Buford Jones’s ‘Live Mixing’ on June 13th at 10:30am and ‘Mix it up—Live Audio Workshop’ on June 13th at 12:30 PM. On June 14th at 10:30 AM, consultant Bill Schuermann, who has implemented an array of Meyer Sound systems, including the recent Houston Ballet, will lead the discussion ‘Low Voltage Audio Systems: Raising the Bar.’
