Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Annex, New York
The Medialon system also addresses Dataton Watchout, the software that drives a theater program that welcomes visitors. Visitors watch an 11-minute history of rock and roll unfold on seven displays — brightened by three 7000-lumen Sony VPL-FW300L projectors and four VPL-FE40 units — and hear it in 5.1 surround at about 100dB. Batwin + Robin Productions of New York devised the video presentation, and Acme created the multichannel mix for the show, which relies almost completely on concert footage that was recorded in stereo and, in some cases, mono. Available Light of New York created the lighting design for the show and the annex's exhibits.
For the exhibit and theater loudspeakers, Acme turned to Klein + Hummel. (Sony and Sennheiser provided equipment to the annex via a sponsorship arrangement.) The theater system comprises four LCR 12in. IS 123 X54B two-way mains, six 6in. Pro X 6 N two-way surrounds, and two 12in.Pro X Sub L subwoofers.
