Meyer Sound celebrates EXP’s year of progress4 July 2011
The manufacturer’s EXP cinema sound system – which was highlighted at last week’s CineEurope event – is being rolled out to CinemaxX theatres (Copenhagen screen pictured) and other venues.
The core components of EXP cinema sound featured at the Meyer Sound stand during CineEurope include the Acheron 100 screen channel loudspeakers, Acheron LF low-frequency loudspeakers, HMS-10 surround loudspeakers and X-800C cinema subwoofers. All loudspeakers in systems meeting the EXP standard are self-powered, with signal distribution and optimisation provided by the Galileo loudspeaker management system.
EXP systems were also heard in two other manufacturers’ demo rooms. In the Dolby demo room, movie soundtracks were reproduced by Acheron Studio screen channel loudspeakers and HMS-10 surround loudspeakers, while Barco promoted its Auro 3D 11.1 cinema system using EXP speakers.
The CineEurope showcase took place during an increasingly high-profile period for the EXP system. A major multi-year programme will see the speakers introduced to 60 CinemaxX screens across Germany and Denmark, while EXP is also being installed at screens run by the Solaris Center in Tallinn, Estonia, and Sala Berlanga in Spain.
Other recent EXP system installations have been completed in the US (Pacific Theatres and Cinetopia), India (Urvashi Cinema), and Korea (Megabox KINTEX).
