Berkeley, CA (November 2, 2005)–Meyer Sound has acquired LCS Audio, makers of sophisticated multichannel digital audio mixing and processing products, and electronic acoustic enhancement such as VRAS, CueConsole, CueStation, Matrix3, SpaceMap and WildTracks. The union of these two companies results from successful collaboration on the development of Galileo loudspeaker management system, and underscores Meyer Sound’s commitment to digital audio as part of its vision for the future of professional sound reinforcement.

LCS CEO John McMahon sees the acquisition as expanding growth opportunities by combining LCS’ proven technologies with Meyer Sound’s marketing and manufacturing expertise. “Our products have been used by some of the world’s leading sound designers for years,” said McMahon. “Meyer Sound’s excellent reputation and profile in audio worldwide will enable us to provide innovative products to broader markets and continue pushing the state of the art forward in new ways.”
The acquisition of LCS by Meyer Sound was said a natural decision for both companies, whose “highly complementary” products are often used together in theaters around the world. “We have long respected the integrity, creativity and innovation of the LCS team and its products,” noted Helen Meyer, executive vice president of Meyer Sound. “Integrating the two companies bolsters Meyer Sound’s research capabilities to further our aims in advancing digital audio. We are genuinely pleased to join forces with people who share our vision.”
LCS will continue to operate from its existing offices in Sierra Madre, CA, and Vernon, British Columbia, Canada, while CEO John McMahon and senior vice president, Steve Ellison, will work to raise awareness and understanding of the LCS line of products.
