Meyer Sound’s popular Sonic Lounge will be reassembled on site at the Frankfurt Messe for the 2019 Prolight + Sound (PL+S) show from April 2-5.
The Sonic Lounge provides an environment conveniently located at the show where audio professionals can relax and enjoy refreshments while communicating directly with Meyer Sound sales, support and R&D teams. The Sonic Lounge will feature daily demonstrations of the new Spacemap LIVE spatial mixing platform and an extensive display of Meyer Sound products, including the new ULTRA-X40. The demos will be hosted by director of Digital Experience, Tim Boot, and director of Spatial Sound, Steve Ellison.
The Sonic Lounge will be located at Portalhaus level Via, Room Frequenz 1.
"Prolight + Sound is an important show, and it’s held in one of the most important markets in Europe. It keeps us fully engaged in this part of the world where we have a dedicated office and a significant customer base," said SVP of marketing, John McMahon.
ULTRA-X40 loudspeakers along with LINA compact line array loudspeakers will be incorporated into a multi-point immersive system created to totally envelop the Sonic Lounge, using a preview of Spacemap LIVE, a new spatial sound platform that leverages the power of the GALAXY network platform along with new custom control software for real-time manipulation of 3D sound panning.
Meyer Sound’s large touring and installation systems can be heard in the Messe’s Festhalle arena, where PRG will stage a sound, light and video spectacular with audio anchored by a Meyer Sound LEO Family system with LYON line array loudspeakers, 1100-LFC low frequency control elements and the new VLFC very low frequency control element.
Two key members of Meyer Sound’s global support team will participate in the PL+S education program. Senior technical support and education specialist Merlijn van Veen will present "Mind the Gap: Improved Cancellation for Cardioid Subwoofer Arrays" at 1 pm on April 3; director of system optimisation Bob McCarthy will present "M-Noise: A New Test Signal" on April 4 at 3 pm. Both presentations will be in the Entente Room.
