Acoustic consultancy White Mark Ltd has helped Pixelogic transform a former office building in London’s West End into a state-of-the-art audio facility.
Working closely with Laurence Claydon, Pixelogic’s technical consultant and programme manager, White Mark, has designed and installed five Dolby Atmos approved sound mixing and screening theatres, each of which supports a variety of immersive audio formats and is equipped with the latest laser projector technology for 4K and HDR.
White Mark completely reconfigured the interior space of Pixelogic’s premises to make room for five theatres, plus two recording booths for ADR work. There is also room for a sixth theatre, which will open later this year.
White Mark was awarded this project on the back of its long experience in designing audio facilities for music, film and TV post production clients. Since its formation in 1997, it has overseen the construction of over 600 production suites.
David Bell, managing director of White Mark, commented: “We are particularly happy with the performance of the finished suites, with acoustic responses that translate superbly to the outside world whilst supporting accurate mixing and editing.”
The three larger theatres are equipped with Avid Pro Tools systems and JBL monitoring (32, 30 and 28 channels respectively) and all five theatres are networked using the latest Dante technology so that work can be easily moved from one room to another.
Pixelogic’s London facility provides subtitling, foreign language dubbing, access services, text and metadata translation, audio services including mixing, graphics design and versioning, digital cinema mastering and key fulfilment, post-theatrical distribution mastering, compression and authoring for physical media formats, transcoding and packaging for digital distribution products, and archive mastering.
