Marina Bay Sands’ Expo and Convention Centre
Coda Group, Singapore
Asia’s leading destination for business, leisure and entertainment, Marina Bay Sands, needed a system that could provide their customers with the best sound experience. In May of this year, the centre upgraded its inventory of AV equipment with the first Meyer Sound LYON and LEOPARD linear sound reinforcement systems in Singapore. Their upgrade to 156 total Meyer Sound loudspeakers represents the largest investment to date in LEO Family technology by any hotel/MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, and Events) operator in the world.
“Our upgraded audio, video, and lighting inventory is a strategic investment aimed at further enriching the experience of our customers,” notes Mike Lee, Marina Bay Sands’ vice president of sales. “With even greater technical quality, we can meet increasing demand from event planners that bring in world-class entertainers requiring the best in AV capabilities.”
The centre’s investment includes 36 LYON and 42 LEOPARD line array loudspeakers supplemented by 24 1100-LFC and 16 900-LFC low-frequency control elements. The systems are not permanently installed, and can be moved and configured as needed in any of the integrated resort’s numerous indoor and outdoor events spaces. Also included are 24 MJF-210 and 12 MJF-212A stage monitors and eight Galileo Callisto 616 array processors. This upgrade follows a 2012 purchase of 50-total MILO, MINA, and CQ-2 line array loudspeakers and 700-HP subwoofers. All systems were supplied by Singapore-based Coda Group.
As a company that hosts year-round events using their own inventory, they needed self-powered systems that would eliminate the need for separate amplifiers, processors, and cable sets. With Meyer Sound, the production process is made infinitely simpler, while providing the resort with a newfound flexibility and consistency in system design. All LEO Family loudspeakers and subwoofers share the same sonic signature, which allows for easy configuration and scalability to any size venue or any application.
