Berlin Celebrates Opening of Europe's Largest Train Station with Help from Meyer Sound's MILO
 (Corporate A/V)

The new Berlin Hauptbahnhof is giving onlookers a glimpse into the future right smack in the historical center of the 800-year-old city. The German capital's new central train station is an architectural masterpiece that, at over 900 feet long and as tall as a skyscraper, has caused more than a few awestruck passers-by to liken it to a "Cathedral of Rail Traffic." The long structure features a glass-lined outer hull that lets visitors see both the German Chancellery and the Reichstag buildings. The numbers are as impressive as the view: covering more than 70,000 square meters, and housing 54 escalators and 49 elevators, the Hauptbahnhof can host 2,000 trains and 300,000 commuters a day.

San Francisco Opera Appeals to the Masses with the Help of Meyer Sound (Corporate A/V)

Madama Butterfly is one of the most-loved works in the entire canon of opera. In fact, it was the favorite of its composer, Giacomo Puccini, out of all of his operas. The timeless nature of Madama Butterfly could hardly have been seen at its disastrous premiere at Milan, Italy's famed La Scala opera house in February 1904, when a complex mix of logistical, artistic and political issues resulted in La Scala's famously merciless crowd giving the work a raucously negative reception. But when Puccini's reworked version reopened in Brescia a mere three and a half months later, its future popularity was clearly indicated by the seven encores and Puccini's 10 curtain calls.

Meyer Sound Deployed with Vienna Philharmonic in Seoul Stadium (Live Sound)

There is a huge difference between the pumped-up pandemonium of a world cup soccer match and the subtle detail of a world-class orchestral concert. Yet venues built for the former are sometimes pressed into service for the latter, and it can be a major challenge to ensure that the resulting sound does justice to the performers. When the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Zubin Mehta, came to South Korea's Seoul World Cup Stadium, that challenge fell to sound system contractor MBC Media Tech. To meet the requirements for power, fidelity, and control, MBC chose self-powered loudspeakers from Meyer Sound. Read More »

Recently, the sweeping changes included installation of a new self-powered audio system from Meyer Sound. Read More »
