Meyer Sound for Megaplex

South Korea’s Megabox chain of movie theatres has selected Meyer Sound’s cinema loudspeaker system for its newly enhanced ‘M2’ premium screen concept. The ‘M2’ screen in Megabox COEX, Korea’s largest multiplex, is now operating in 5.1 and 7.1 surround modes, and the room is set to become Asia’s first Atmos-compliant cinema to be equipped with a Meyer Sound cinema system. All ‘B chain’ elements are in place, including the extensive complement of side, rear and overhead loudspeakers. “There has been a lot of competition among the new 3D immersive sound formats,” said Youlgoo Lee, Chief Technical Manager for Megabox. “But Meyer Sound convinced us that any new format requires high-quality speakers to present clear and powerful sound to the audience.”
