Last month, London’s Halo launched a dubbing suite, Studio 5, at its Noel Street facility. The studio is suited for TV mix work across all genres, as well as for DCP 5.1 and 7.1 theatrical projects, or as a pre-mix room for Halo’s Dolby Features licensed Studios 1 and 3. The new room is also pre-wired for Dolby Atmos.
The new studio features an HDX2 Pro Tools 12|HD system, a 24-fader Avid S6 M40 and a custom Dynaudio 7.1 speaker system. This is all routed via a Colin Broad TMC-1-Penta controlled DADAX32 digital audio matrix for maximum versatility and future scalability. Picture playback from Pro Tools is provided by an AJA Kona LHi card via a Barco 2K digital projector.
In addition, Halo has built a dedicated 5.1 audio editing room for their recently arrived head of sound editorial, Jay Price, to work from. Situated directly adjacent to the new studio, the room features Pro Tools 12|HD Native system and 5.1 Dynaudio Air 6 speakers.
Jigsaw24 and CB Electronics supplied the hardware and the installation know-how. Level Acoustic designed, and Munro Acoustics provided a custom speaker system.
