New sound and light show for Edfu Temple

The 2,200 year-old Edfu Temple—also known as the Temple of Horus—is the second largest surviving ancient Egyptian temple (after Karnak) and one of the best preserved. Its new 50-minute sound and light show features dramatic imagery and a soundtrack.

"Our goal was to create a show that would set a new benchmark for permanent sound and light shows at historic monuments,’ said Sabine Weissinger of Germany-based Casa Magica, designer for the Edfu show. ‘The Meyer Sound loudspeakers are able to deliver a full orchestra sound as well as delicate solo instruments, choir and reciting voices."

A total of 13 Meyer Sound UPM-1P loudspeakers provide effects and ambience before the show kicks off.

Lighting and the wall-projected imagery are synchronised with audio tracks reproduced by three UPQ-1P loudspeakers on top of the enclosure walls and two 700-HP subwoofers on the ground.
