John Meyer, founder of Meyer Sound, receives the Samuel L. Warner Memorial Award

Author:


SMPTE (Society of Media Practitioners, Technologists and Engineers) presented the 2022 Samuel L. Warner Memorial Award to John Meyer, co-founder, President and CEO of Meyer Sound. SMPTE said the honor was awarded in recognition of his contributions to the design, measurement and analysis of cinema speakers, which are commonly used in movie mixing, censorship and screening venues. The official awards ceremony will take place on October 27 at the SMPTE Awards Ceremony at the Loews Hollywood Hotel.

John Meyer said: "This award shows the recognition that the industry has given us, and I am deeply grateful for it. Of course, it's also a recognition of my personal commitment to excellence in film sound, a belief that goes back to my childhood. I have always enjoyed the good experience of good movie sound, and the bad sound makes me angry, but this is not uncommon. I always think that sound could have been better, and achieving this goal is the focus of my life's work."

Meyer and his wife, Helen, founded Meyer Sound in 1979, a young and innovative company that quickly caught the attention of audio engineers at a company owned by famed filmmaker Francis Coppola (Francis Ford Coppola).

Meyer recalls, "One of our first products was an ultra-low-frequency speaker tailored for the Apocalypse Now feature, which led to our ongoing collaboration with Francis Ford Coppola and Dioramo (American Zoetrope). However, it was not until we mastered the mature active speaker technology that we began to produce a full range of theater-specific speakers. We wanted to ensure a product that would deliver a significant performance boost to the speaker market, and we believe we 've achieved that goal. For this, I would like to thank every member of Meyer Sound, including R & D engineers and speaker assembly technicians, who are honored with this award."

In 2008, Meyer Sound showed off a prototype full-range sound system at the Skywalker Sound Studio (Skywalker Sound) in Marin County, California, announcing its plans to enter the theater-only market. The following year, Meyer Sound introduced the Acheron series of screen speakers, as well as the HMS series of surround sound speakers and X-800 theater ultra-low frequency speakers. As with all Meyer Sound speakers, the entire cinema series is based on active technology.

Meyer Sound Theater Speakers have earned wide recognition in the global trade show market and in select movie spot venues, such as the prestigious Los Angeles DGA Theater, operated by the Directors Guild of America, and the premier venue for many New York film premieres, the Jazz Hall Rose Theater at Lincoln Center. The company also continues to make appearances at major film festivals, most notably the Telluride Film Festival, which the Meyer Sound system has served for more than a decade.

In addition, many famous film and television post-production studios are now using Meyer Sound monitoring system, including Skywalker Sound Studio (Skywalker Sound), Pixar Animation Studios (Pixar), Fox Studio Newman Scoring Stage in California, Warner Bros. De Lane Lea Post-production Audio Studio in London (Warner Bros. De Lane Lea) and Rotor Film Post-production Company in Potsdam, Germany.
