Qvest upgrades audio production for Rotor Film

Dual-operator installation features two Avid S6 mixers at Babelsberg studios

German broadcast services provider Qvest has unveiled a dual-operator audio production installation for the post production specialist Rotor Film.

The company modernised three studios in the historic Babelsberg film district, installing two Avid S6 mixers and splitting a 64-channel mixer into two to allow dual operation.

The Dolby Atmos-enabled Avid S6 console allows mixing engineers to identify and define individual sounds, effects or spoken phrases before they enter the mixing console, according to the company. Users can also operate the S6 console to work directly in the channel, via dynamic processing or the touch controls provided on the console’s central monitor.

Qvest added that using interchangeable modules and scalable consoles means the Rotor Film team can tailor its studio setups to individual projects, having recently completed post production for The Matrix Resurrections.

“We needed a partner we could rely on, who could keep up with our pace and who knew the technologies in our industry,” said Martin Fr├╝hmorgen, Rotor Film MD. “Getting the new equipment in place has given us the most modern mixing and grading studio you will find anywhere in Europe and one of the few major Dolby Atmos studios in Germany. With our studio we offer absolute production security and state-of-the-art technological equipment even for international productions.”

“The biggest challenge was to minimise studio downtime,” noted Jonathan Baker, Qvest solutions architect. “And when it comes to optimally exploiting the dual-operator installation with Avid S6 consoles, knowing network technology and workflow design inside out is key. The result in all three studios is absolutely remarkable and therefore we are even more pleased that our cooperation can be continued at the further locations of Rotor Film.”
