Meyer Sound Provides EXP System for Telluride Film Festival's Galaxy Theatre
In its first year as a corporate sponsor of the Telluride Film Festival, Meyer Sound will supply a complete EXP cinema sound system for movie screenings at the festival's 500-seat theatre, the Galaxy. Each year, the Galaxy venue is transformed from a gymnasium at a local middle school into a movie screening room for the festival, which draws thousands of movie enthusiasts, studio executives, and creative talent to the Colorado mountain resort town for four days of complete cinematic immersion.
"We entertain a high caliber of filmmakers and attendees at Telluride Film Festival who all expect the very best from us," says Julie Huntsinger, co-director of the festival. "Because of the opportunity we have to work with Meyer Sound and their superior sound equipment for the Galaxy, we are able to meet and exceed those expectations and ensure the best possible experience for our guests."
To ensure ideal movie screening conditions in the Galaxy, acoustical treatments are overlaid with black drapery and an eclectic array of art, while a Meyer Sound EXP solution provides the sonic clarity and power to meet the needs of any film that may be shown. The technology upgrade also includes a Barco digital cinema projector, Century JJ projectors for film, a Dolby CP650 cinema processor, and STRONG MDI projection screen.
The Meyer Sound EXP system for the Galaxy includes Acheron screen channel loudspeakers, Acheron LF low frequency loudspeakers, HMS-10 surround loudspeakers, a custom Meyer Sound subwoofer configuration using the 700-HP subwoofers, and a Galileo loudspeaker management system. The SIM 3 audio analyzer will be brought in to achieve pinpoint system optimization.
The 38th Telluride Film Festival is scheduled for September 2-5, 2011.
