SDI Media has opened its new custom built Dolby Atmos mixing suite in Rome, Italy.
The new suite extends SDI Media’s Dolby-certified theatrical service offering to include 12 recording/mixing rooms across Denmark, Germany, Italy, Poland and Spain.
The suite expands SDI's presence in Italy where it already has two dubbing suites in Milan, and seven dubbing suites complemented by two, 5.1 TV mixing rooms in Rome.
SDI partnered with Munro Acoustics on the build which allows the company to produce Italian or other-language soundtracks with Dolby Atmos.
The Dolby Atmos audio configuration of the suite involved the installation of 40 JBL loudspeakers piloted by nine Crown digital amplifiers, two BSS DAD audio matrices, an Avid S6-M40-56 Fader console, two Avid Pro-tools Hdx3 - for a total of 320 channels - equipped with the most important plug-in bundles, an Avid Media Composer, a Sony 4K projector with Atmos DCP server and a Harkness screen with a six metre base.
"With the new mixing suite, we have expanded audio services for content creators, and distributors who are looking for capable providers," said Mauro Torrente, business development manager at SDI Media. "We are proud to support our existing clients and attract new clients with the most advanced audio production capabilities for theatrical, home entertainment and broadcast."
