Even in the visual arts, audio matters. The SFMOMA will re-open May 14 after a three-year expansion, including triple the gallery space and 45,000 square feet of free public access areas. SFMOMA partnered with Meyer Sound to provide sound solutions throughout the building. In the redesigned Phyllis Wattis Theater, located at the heart of the museum, SFMOMA installed Meyer Sound reinforcement systems, and a Constellation acoustic system.

Video Tour: Chauvet Professional Maverick MK2 Spot

Jacob Coakley

The new Maverick MK2 Spot from Chauvet Professional is designed to be a very bright tour-ready affordable spot that can be used at an arena one night and a 500-person venue the next. Powered by a 440-watt LED engine, the Maverick MK2 Spot produces 2,518 to 18,079 lux at 5 meters, depending on the zoom angle. The new fixture, which has a seven-position plus white color wheel, also produces a wide range of rich, realistic hues, thanks to its CMY and variable CTO color mixing system. The Maverick MK2 also includes a precision engineered optical system, dual 6-position rotating slot and lock gobo wheels, variable frost, a 3-facet prism, 13° to 37° zoom range and 16-bit dimming for the smooth control of fades. The user-friendly Maverick MK2 Spot also offers a wide variety of control options, including DMX, WDMX, SACN and ArtNet.
