San Francisco, CA (September 13, 2011)—TechCrunch Disrupt SF 2011 is currently underway, with help from a Mina PA from Meyer Sound.
Running September 12 to 14, 2011, hundreds of technology entrepreneurs are attending the noted cyber-world forum and start-up competition. Speakers from Turntable.fm, LinkedIn, Quora, Intuit, and Facebook will be heard through 18 Mina line array loudspeakers, built in Berkeley by Meyer Sound.
The Mina loudspeaker system is deployed by Swank Audio Visuals of St. Louis, MO., the event’s primary audio supplier, in the Concourse of the San Francisco Design Center. An elongated pavilion built largely of steel and glass, the Concourse is a challenging space for speech reinforcement.
To keep sound focused on the deep audience area of about 80 feet by 220 feet, the system design calls for dual front arrays of six-each Mina loudspeakers supplemented by a center-axis delay cluster of six Mina loudspeakers. System drive is provided by a Galileo loudspeaker managementsystem with a Galileo 616 processor.
TechCruch Disrupt is sponsored by the TechCrunch network of websites. Following San Francisco, the next TechCrunch Disrupt event is scheduled for Beijing in October, 2011. Speakers and judges at the San Francisco event include Silicon Valley venture capitalists, software ventures, and representatives from companies like Google, Microsoft, and Facebook. At the end of the event, a $50,000 grand prize is awarded to the start-up venture judged most innovative and likely to succeed.
