ArcLight Cinemas has selected Meyer Sound cinema audio systems for three
screens at new upscale multiplex theatres in Chicago, Illinois; Bethesda, Maryland;
and Santa Monica, California. A fourth Meyer Sound system was installed earlier at
ArcLight Cinemas’ La Jolla, California location.

“We were very happy with the results in La Jolla,’ remarks Joe Miraglia, ArcLight’s
director of design, construction and facilities. “We continue to see Meyer Sound as
the premium brand for cinema audio, offering a superior level of quality that our
guests appreciate.’

All four screens feature Dolby Atmos® immersive sound.

“The dynamic range of the content coming out now is much more demanding on the
audio system,’ continues Miraglia, “and Meyer Sound provides optimum
performance by pairing the amplifiers inside the loudspeakers. We think that is the
best solution going for Atmos.’

The Meyer Sound cinema systems are nearly identical at all three locations, each
with five Acheron 100 screen loudspeakers, five Acheron LF loudspeakers, six X-
800C cinema subwoofers, four HMS-12 front wall surround loudspeakers, two 500-
HP ceiling surround subwoofers, and a Galileo loudspeaker management system
with one Galileo 616 processor. The configurations differ only in wall surrounds,
with 16 or 18 HMS-10 loudspeakers, and ceiling surrounds, with 14 or 16 HMS-12
loudspeakers. All systems were provided by ACS Enterprises, Inc. of Walnut,

Meyer Sound offers the industry’s only complete line of self-powered cinema
loudspeakers, with all surround loudspeakers employing Meyer Sound’s proprietary
IntelligentDC technology. By using remote DC power supplies, IntelligentDC affords
all the benefits of self-powered systems – including true bi-amplification in the
surrounds – with the cost-efficiency of one-cable installation and no requirements
for conduit in most code jurisdictions.

“With the Meyer Sound systems you experience the soundtrack the way it was
created on the final dubbing stage,’ notes Miraglia. “We’ve been told by creative
people in the film industry that with these systems they can hear the sound exactly
as the creators intended. We believe that level of premium sound is one more
reason why people choose to come to ArcLight.’

All three new screens also feature Christie 4230 4K digital projection and Dolby 3D
technology. The screen sizes range from 53’ to 60’, with auditorium capacities
between 220 and 280.

Owned and operated by the Los Angeles-based Decurion Corporation, ArcLight
Cinemas operates at eight locations in three states, with further expansion planned
in the near future. ArcLight’s premium amenities also include a cafe and bar, art
exhibits, a gift shop, and a membership program which now claims more than
500,000 participants.
