Las Vegas Sphere

What’s 366 feet tall, 516 feet wide, has a 16K 160,000 square foot display and 169,000 speakers? Of course, I’m referring to the new Madison Square Garden (MSG) Sphere which opened last night (9/29) in Las Vegas with U2 kicking off the festivities and they’ll be there until mid-December.

For the audio portion, MSG partnered with a Berlin company called Holoplot to tackle the challenges of producing superior audio in a 3 million square foot curved structure. Check out this YouTube which is a good primer and a brief discussion of the use of ‘Beam Forming’ to address the audio challenges and provide an immersive and personalized audio experience,

If anyone has any additional factoids about the audio setup, love to hear them.
