Megabox Kintex
The first Asian installation of Meyer Sound’s EXPcinema loudspeaker system is now running at Megabox’s new Kintex complex near Seoul, South Korea.

The the premium ‘M’ screen at the multiplex is equipped with EXP Acheron 80 and Acheron 100 screen channel loudspeakers, supplemented by Acheron LF low-frequency screen channel loudspeakers. Sub-bass comes from six X-800C subwoofers, and the surround-sound through 18 HMS-10 loudspeakers. The system has been optimised using a Meyer Sound Galileo loudspeaker management system with one Galileo 616 processor.

‘The film exhibition market in Korea is fast-growing and extremely competitive,’ says Brooke Lee, of Kinoton Korea, supplier and integrator of the 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.’

Megabox KintexMeyer Sound consultant ‘dB Dave’ Dennison designed the system and calibrated it for uniform response throughout the 200-seat auditorium using the SIM 3 audio analyser.

‘EXP systems have a power and clarity that greatly enhances the audience experience, and that sells tickets,’ says Kinoton Korea’s Chris 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 demanding requirements of cinema audio, EXP systems have been chosen by commercial operators seeking to provide sound on par with high-quality digital projection systems. EXP’s Asian debut follows a string of EXP commercial cinema installations in North America and Europe. 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 conventional and digital projection systems and advanced sound solutions to commercial cinemas, broadcasters, and film and video production facilities across Asia.
