Philophon’s new Dolby ATMOS facility built by Munro7 August 2013
Luxembourg-based Philophon Post Production studios has a brand new studio, featuring a Dolby ATMOS audio system, built by Munro Acoustics. The latest addition to the company’s facilities is located inside Filmland, Luxembourg’s new film production complex. Filmland hosts production offices, two 1,000m2 sound stages and a post production department.
Andy Munro of Munro Acoustics commented: “It is great to be involved with the ATMOS programme and this is our fifth project since its inception. Philophon is the perfect client; fully committed to quality and sound engineering of the highest standard. I have no doubt that cinema will embrace ATMOS as a truly innovative approach to sound-field creation.”
Philophon’s new Studio A is based around a 32 fader Avid D-control running three Pro Tools HDX systems and Avid Media Composer for picture playback. Audio is by Dolby ATMOS speaker system and other equipment includes three TC electronic M6000 reverb units and a Cedar DNS 3000 de-noiser.
Production sound mixers Philippe Kohn and Carlo Thoss and re-recording mixer Michel Schillings established the company in 2007. Today its facilities include eight sound editing suites equipped with Dynaudio 5.1 monitors as well as two Mixing Stages. Philophon’s core business is feature film sound design and mixing but includes all types of sound for picture production, including documentaries and TV series.
