De Lane Lea has become the first post-production facility in Europe to switch to Meyer Sound Cinema Experience systems, reports PSN-e. To provide superlative audio capabilities for mixing feature films that translate smoothly for reproduction in cinemas, the studios recently upgraded to Meyer Sound Cinema Experience systems in Studios 1, 2 and 3.
An in-house team led by chief engineer Paul Jarvis oversaw the upgrade, which included Meyer Sound Acheron 80, Acheron LF, Acheron Studio, HMS-10 full-range two-way loudspeakers, Galileo, SIM, X-800 subwoofers, refurbished consoles, new fabrics and acoustics, and involved close collaboration between Meyer Sound, Munro Acoustics and consultant Dennis "Wiz" Leonard.
"Switching to Meyer Sound is virtually unprecedented in our industry," said general manager Mike King. "Yet, it made complete sense. Everyone who has visited the facility can hear the difference."
"I'm really impressed with the clarity and dynamics of the systems, and by their ability to translate successfully to more traditional cinema monitors," added Jarvis. "Design and build quality are first-class, and the digital signal processor user interface is very intuitive and powerful."
Other post-production facilities using Meyer Sound include Francis Ford Coppola's Zoetrope Studios, ImageMovers Digital, and Skywalker Sound.
