Finland’s Helsinki City Theatre goes fully immersive

Finland’s Helsinki City Theatre recently has recently acquired ‘full immersive audio capability’, upgrading its Meyer Sound loudspeaker systems and installing D-Mitri digital audio platforms with Wild Tracks multichannel playback and Space Map 3-D panning.
