imgTelluride, CO (August 28, 2013)-Movie screenings at the new 650-seat Werner Herzog Theatre will be heard through a cinema system from Meyer Sound at this year's Telluride Film Festival, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary.

"The Werner Herzog Theatre is a huge achievement for Telluride Film Festival and the town of Telluride. It will be the festival's most technologically advanced, and its sound system is of the utmost importance to us," says Julie Huntsinger, executive director of the festival.

The 7.1 surround Meyer Sound system at the new theatre is anchored by three Acheron 100 screen channel loudspeakers, each paired with an Acheron LF screen channel loudspeaker. Twenty-two HMS-12 cinema surround loudspeakers and 10 X-800C studio subwoofers support Dolby Atmos surround sound. Three Galileo 616 processors manage the system.

The Werner Herzog Theatre is located inside Telluride's Town Park Pavilion, which was recently converted from an open-air ice-skating rink. The theatre's X-800C subwoofers are configured in a cardioid pattern to ensure that defined low end is directed into the room, while limiting low-frequency reverberation in an empty space behind the screen.

In addition, the Galaxy, a screening room transformed from the Telluride Middle School auditorium, includes two Acheron 80 and one Acheron 100 loudspeakers, three Acheron LF loudspeakers, seven X-800C subwoofers and 20 HMS-10 cinema surround loudspeakers. Two Galileo 408 processors provides system drive and processing.

Meyer Sound is providing separate reinforcement systems for each panel discussion venue. MINA line arrays, 500-HP subwoofers and a Galileo 408 processor anchor the systems.

The 2013 Telluride Film Festival will run August 29-September 2, 2013.
