South Korea’s Megabox KINTEX Debuts Asia’s First Meyer Sound EXP Cinema System
Asia’s first Meyer Sound EXP cinema system is wowing moviegoers at the premium “M” screen at Megabox’s KINTEX near Seoul, South Korea. EXP’s Asian debut is the latest in a recent string of EXP commercial cinema installations in North America and Europe.
“The film exhibition market in Korea is fast-growing and extremely competitive,” says Brooke Lee of Kinoton Korea, supplier and integrator of the fully self-powered Meyer Sound EXP system. “The dynamic power and accuracy of EXP proved a perfect match for the upscale ‘M’ concept, which features luxury seating, a 19-meter-wide screen, and Sony 4K digital projection.”
The “M” screen at the new KINTEX multiplex is equipped with EXP Acheron® 80 and Acheron 100 screen channel loudspeakers, supplemented by Acheron LF low frequency screen channel loudspeakers. Sub-bass thrusts from six X-800C subwoofers, and immersive sound comes through 18 HMS-10 surround loudspeakers. The entire experience is optimized using a Galileo® loudspeaker management system with one Galileo 616 processor.
Meyer Sound consultant “dB Dave” Dennison designed the system and calibrated it for uniform response throughout the 200-seat auditorium using the SIM® 3 audio analyzer.
According to Kinoton Korea’s Chris Bae, the aggressive growth of Korean cinema operators points toward more premium screen installations with Meyer Sound EXP systems. “EXP systems have a power and clarity that greatly enhances the audience experience, and that sells tickets,” emphasizes Bae. “In addition, the self-powered EXP loudspeakers have much lower maintenance costs, which is also very appealing to the operators.”
Meyer Sound’s first product line created exclusively for the uniquely demanding requirements of cinema audio, EXP systems have been chosen by commercial operators seeking to heighten the total patron experience by providing sound on par with high-quality digital projection systems. EXP installations now include CinemaxX in Denmark and Germany, Solaris Kino in Estonia, and Cinetopia in North America, in addition to a number of film postproduction facilities that include Skywalker Sound, American Zoetrope, and London’s De Lane Lea.
Established in 2000, Kinoton Korea provides both conventional and digital projection systems and advanced sound solutions to commercial cinemas, broadcasters, and film and video production facilities across Asia.
