SBS chooses Meyer Sound for studio complex
SOUTH KOREA: Broadcasting and multimedia company SBS recently invested in a number of Meyer Sound JM-1P arrayable loudspeakers for its newest studio complex. Designed as a collaborative effort by SBS’s own engineers and Seoul-based system supplier Incova, the Meyer Sound solution was installed to accommodate a wide variety of musical and spoken word programming.
Located in Digital Media City in the Sangam District of Seoul, the new studio offers adjustable seating for up to 250 people. In addition to hosting a regular music program entitled ‘The Show,’ this studio is also used for live concerts, such as a recent performance by Korean rock band CNBlue. Its changing seating arrangements and programming materials were key considerations in the final selection of the Meyer Sound JM-1P system.
The installation includes left and right arrays comprised of four JM-1P loudspeakers each side, in addition to eight UPQ-1P loudspeakers. Low end is provided for in the way of two 700-HP and 600-HP subwoofers each, whilst four UM-1P stage monitors are available for foldback. System alignment and drive is supplied by a Galileo loudspeaker management system with two Galileo 616 processors.
‘The Meyer Sound system was selected after a thorough examination of the strengths and weaknesses of a number of alternatives,’ said Seung Ho Lee of the SBS technical team. ‘It was determined that the exceptionally clear and intelligible Meyer Sound solution would be more useful in all types of performances, not only all different music genres but spoken word programming as well.’
