Boutique audio facility Portland Audio has upgraded one of its suites to Dolby Atmos 7.1.4.
The suite, based at the company’s office in Oxford Circus, London was designed in conjunction with HHB Communications and Msonic, Finland, and features an Avid ProTools S6 M40 16 fader console, complete Genelec monitoring system and a Mac-based Dolby Atmos Home Entertainment RMU.
It also offers a voice over booth with line of sight to clients and engineers, and enough room for two artists.
Portland Audio’s lead sound designer Claire Bilyard said: “The room sounds amazing. It’s a perfect studio for high end, long form projects with multiple clients attending, alongside my branding and trailer work. The creative possibilities of immersive audio are really exciting.”
In addition to the newly upgraded Atmos suite, the post house offers a second stereo studio with VO booth and an Avid S1 console, ideally suited to short form content.
“Whilst there was a huge growth in home working due to the pandemic and the desire for flexible working, this comes with some obvious drawbacks,” added Bilyard. “The most significant of which is the need to assess and sign off mixes under studio conditions with creatives and clients present. We are excited to offer Portland Audio’s studios as a space in which to do this.”
