Meyer Sound victorious in Denmark14 May 2014
Denmark-based Victory Tour Production has updated its rental inventory with two systems from Meyer Sound’s newly expanded LEO Family of products: the LEO linear sound reinforcement system, as well as the compact LYON linear line array system.
Frank Grønbæk, project manager for Victory and head of the Copenhagen office, says: “LEO is already being requested by major tours. Its power and long throw opens us, not only to the largest stadium and festival shows in Denmark, but also to a wider market elsewhere in northern Europe. LYON’s size and weight is ideally suited to most shows in the relatively small Danish market.”
The company witnessed a LYON demonstration in Amsterdam and decided that Meyer Sound was the right investment. “The coverage and power were very impressive,” recalls Grønbæk. “I went back 65 meters, up in the balcony, and the sound was still right there, in my face. Then when I walked around the side and came out of the coverage, it just dropped off, like pulling down a console fader. That was amazing. Even all the way off to one side, way in the back, I could still hear a solid left-right stereo image.”
Victory’s Meyer Sound purchase includes 24 LEO-M line array loudspeakers, 20 LYON-M main line array loudspeakers, eight LYON-W wide-coverage line array loudspeakers, and 28 1100-LFC low-frequency control elements. The company also purchased eight JM-1P arrayable loudspeakers, six UPA-1P and two UPQ-1P loudspeakers, a Compass RMS remote monitoring system featuring six RMServers for real-time loudspeaker feedback, and a Galileo Callisto loudspeaker management system featuring four Galileo Callisto 616 and two Galileo Callisto 616 AES array processors and two Galileo 408 processors.
The first outing for Victory’s new LEO and LYON systems was a large-scale Danish television broadcast of the TV 2 music show Top Charlie, filmed at the 50,000-capacity Parken soccer stadium.
