Oscar Statuette Copyright AMPAS

grandMA may not have made it onstage at the recent Academy Awards telecast, but it was grandMA’s night to shine, nonetheless. Jason Rudolph selected a grandMA2 light console to play the crucial role of controlling 34 Hippotizer servers, which fed multiple onstage screens via 70 video projectors. A.C.T Lighting is the exclusive distributor of grandMA in North America.

“It was an enormous undertaking, to say the least,” reports Rudolph. “I regularly program multiple media servers with grandMA2 – it’s my main console – but I hadn’t done anything of this size: The entire set at the Oscars was projection. We had 34 Hippotizer HD units outputting 53 discrete active outputs and some spares with control from the grandMA2 light console. In addition to the screens, we also took care more

Combining the traditional Meyer Sound experience with cutting-edge technology falls into the lap of Perrin Meyer, son of the founders John and Helen Meyer. He and his colleague Rich Herr engineered a new design for the critical speaker horn of the MINA, the newest member of the MILO family, a series of self-powered high-power curvilinear array loudspeakers that have become the “gold standard? for large-scale music and stage tours worldwide.

Meticulous is the first word that pops to mind when one walks through the factory and watches the Meyer Sound process in action. Each individual station has a dedicated task. And the folks at Meyer Sound believe in manufacturing their speakers in-house, in Berkeley, California.

“We can exercise much tighter quality control on our own floor than if we were to sub-contract the work abroad. In addition to quality assurance, we also have much more flexibility in analyzing more
