Venuetech and Meyer Sound Return with a 2-Day Training Session

Venuetech Meyer Sound Training

Mere months after our first-ever in-person joint training session in the Middle East, we are excited to announce our second large-scale 2-day training session in collaboration with Meyer Sound.

The “Audio Systems Design and Optimization MAPP 3D” training will be held at Dubai World Trade Center (DWTC) from the 13th to the 14th of September.

Senior Technical Support & Education Specialist, Merlijn Van Veen will lead the training. A veteran audio systems specialist and an educator, Merlijn joined Meyer Sound’s global education leadership team in 2018. Joining him is Sana Romanos, Technical Services Specialist – Middle East & Africa, whose extensive repertoire includes coordinating design services as well as facilitating demos and education programs.

The course is designed for Rental Company Audio Technicians, System Integrators, Sound System Designers, and Audio System Specialists. The training intends to explore the relationship between the predictive of the MAPP 3D Sound System Design Tool and actual sound system performance as measured with FFT-based transfer-function analyzers.

The instructors plan to generate and compare data using both tools, in order to help users better understand the correlation between the two. Upon completion of the course, attendees will possess a clearer idea of how sound systems behave in both modeled and real space, and with it, a more informed approach to accurately designing and optimizing systems using Meyer Sound solutions.

The training is yet another attempt by Venuetech to help maintain and improve the quality and competitiveness of the ever-improving, dynamic audio industry in the region. Commenting on the training Mr.Nour Assafiri, CEO of Venuetech LLC said “We saw quite a positive response for our first-ever training with Meyer Sound from the market in Dubai. This is why as the primary distributor of the Middle East, Venuetech decided to organize a large-scale training session for those who are looking to expand their knowledge on Meyer Sound MAPP 3D software and overall industry know-how”.

Meyer Sound Unveils Ultra Reflex Reinventing Screen Channel Audio Reproduction

Meyer Sound has recently launched an innovative solution for the reproduction of screen channel audio on a direct, larger video display.

Unlike with acoustically transmissive projection screens, loudspeakers cannot be placed behind the visual image on a large-scale, direct view displays. As a result, wide acceptance for larger and direct view displays have been diminished over time.

On the other hand, surrounding the display perimeter with screen channel loudspeakers compromises the stability of the location of the image, consistency of coverage and audio fidelity.

Meyer Sound has introduced ULTRA REFLEX as a resolution for this challenge. Sources announce that this solution is paired with Sony’s Crystal LED for the early launch period. The initial joint installation was at a screening room and lab on Netflix Campus in Los Angeles, USA.

INITIAL INSTALLATION OF ULTRA FLEX AT NETFLIX CAMPUS

The screening room featured SONY’s 17 ft wide by 9 ft high HDR- capable 4K Crystal LED display screen, designed to reproduce both critical viewing, audio mixing and facilitate VIP screenings.

Galaxy 816 Network Platform supplied the proprietary DSP for optimization.

As reported by Hidden Wires online magazine, The screening room featured “37 self-powered Meyer Sound cinema loudspeakers including HMS Series lateral and overhead surround loudspeakers supported by USW-210P subwoofers for surround bass management and X-400C cinema subwoofers with low control element for bass management and LFE”.

Theresa Alesso, pro division President of Sony Electronics commented “We sought to complement this powerful imagery with an audio solution that not only matched the visual integrity but enhanced the overall immersiveness. Meyer Sound Ultra Reflex and Crystal LED provide the perfect marriage of superior sound and vision for creatives.”

According to online sources, SONY’s modular and scalable Crystal LED displays integrate MicroLED with SONY’s exclusive LED control and signal processing technology featuring a contrast ratio of more than 1,000,000:1 along with increased brightness, a wide viewing angle as well as a wide color gamut.

According to the online magazine Digital Cinema Report, this state-of-the-art solution is said to preserve the audio advantages of a behind-screen system all the while refining “breadth of coverage for a wider sweet spot” in the viewing space.

Audio Media International reports that “the complete system for each screen channel includes a high frequency component reflecting off the screen coupled with a direct radiating low frequency component”. This solution is said to have designed to accomplish “full bandwidth replication along with low distortion, precise directionality, flat amplitude and phase response for tonal accuracy”.

“The introduction of direct view displays in the cinema industry created the need for a unique solution for LCR screen channels,” said Miles Rogers, Meyer Sound business development manager, cinema & content creation markets. “Ultra Reflex is the culmination of prediction software, loudspeaker technologies, and the lifelong vision of John Meyer to create solutions for the most demanding audio professionals.”

TOGETHER WITH DOLBY ATMOS

The online sources also shared that “the screen channels come as part of a Dolby Atmos system that has quickly recallable snapshots for theatrical or 9.1.6 home entertainment playback modes”

PROFESSIONALS VOUCH FOR AN IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE

The online magazine Audio Media International shared the experiences of several notable witnesses of the ULTRA REFLEX demo at NETFLIX Campus in LA, USA.

The re-recording mixer and sound supervisor for Stranger Things and Sol Levante commented on his experience: “I recently had a chance to visit Netflix to demo Sony’s new large-scale Crystal LED screen and the accompanying immersive sound system that Meyer Sound had developed for it…to be honest I was a bit skeptical, having heard other various attempts at this type of thing. Instead, what I heard was simply stunning — a reference quality, completely transparent sound system that matches the spectacular visuals from the Crystal LED display. Playing clips from my mix of Stranger Things, I was truly shocked at how close it sounded to the studio where we had mixed it. I wouldn’t hesitate to mix on this system in the first place, it’s that good.”
