solutions spec'ed for clients. " Make sure that
those who use the venue also want to use
the equipment, " he recommends.
Meyer Sound's PANTHER, CI's 2022
BEST Award winner for venue/
line-array speakers, makes its debut at
the Levitt Pavilion Denver in Colorado.
" You feel it, and everything's shaking. "
There's nobody better to ask about
line-array speakers than Commercial
Integrator's 2022 BEST Award winner for
venue/line-array speakers - Berkeley,
Calif.-based Meyer Sound. Tim Boot, the
company's director of global marketing,
notes large-scale venues want powerful,
fl exible and adaptable sound systems.
Musicians with residencies - like those
who work in Las Vegas - must be able to
come in and adapt the host venue's sound
systems for the residency, especially when
the entertainer does the same performance
night aſt er night for weeks at a time. In such
a case, the artist wants to " make the space
their own. "
One integrator challenge that Meyer
Sound addressed is line-array speakers'
weight. " Venues are created at all scales,
but, certainly, in the medium and largescale
[venues], they may have had a diff erent
purpose originally, " Boot begins. " And
being able to put high-power systems into
these venues, with maybe some structural
constraints that came with the venue...
basically, [integrators were not] able to
hang heavy systems. " He notes that Meyer
Sound has solved that weight issue with the
PANTHER line. " It opened a lot more possibilities
to put high-performance, high-power
systems into an existing space, " he says.
Boot also notes another trend: Medium
and large-scale venues owning more equipment.
He recalls, " Historically, stadiums
would just have a public-address system. "
For content needs beyond that, they'd call in
a production or rental company.
Ultimately, Boot advises integrators to
look at the fl exibility and adaptability of

Ditch the Disposable Mindset
Boot laments the 'disposable consumer'
mindset, particularly when it driſt s into
commercial applications. " A lot of venues
around the world have been around for
decades, " he says. " [The] technology you
put it in should last for a long time. I would
advise [integrators and clients] to think
about the venue's lifecycle and the types
of systems they can put in there to get the
greatest value over the long term. "
Boot sums up, " Have technology that
can be used for a long lifecycle, or that can
be repurposed for when the primary function
time is up. Work with a company that
can support you long term so that, when
there's a failure, 15 or 20 years in, they're
still going to support you. "
