Roath Lock – BBC Cymru Wales’ newly-opened studios in the Porth Teigr area of Cardiff Bay (formerly Roath Basin) – includes a new Munro Acoustics-designed dubbing suite.
The infrastructure is built around the latest DFC Gemini console from AMS Neve – a desk that is used in several other BBC dubbing theatres. The desk features 16 faders, providing four layers and six banks, giving some 384 channels of audio.
The new suite will provide dubbing facilities for two programmes produced by BBC Wales: Pobol y Cwm and Casualty. The Munro design was completed by local construction teams.
Munro acoustic director Andy Munro commented: “It is now possible to achieve cinema quality sound and video in the new high-definition formats, which has created a demand for very high quality post-production facilities, and it’s great to work with BBC Wales to help build this level of development.”
