APRS is to present a comprehensive demonstration of the PenteoSurround 3D Audio process at the Mark Knopfler-owned London studio facility this Wednesday (beginning at 5.30pm). Demonstrations of film and TV with 5.1 audio converted from standard stereo will take place with a 52-inch hi-resolution display and full surround sound. Attendees are encouraged to bring their favourite CDs for on-the-spot conversion to 5.1 audio.
Major trade associations have invited to the event, which is expected to attract notables from across the UK film, TV and music communities.
“It is a great honour for us to receive such unbridled enthusiasm for PenteoSurround by the APRS at one of the world’s finest recording studios, to which we have been invited so kindly by studio manager David Stewart,” commented Tom Allom (pictured above with Penteo colleague Richie Kayvan and The Soundmasters’ Kevin Metcalfe), PenteoSurround’s senior European representative and producer of artists including Judas Priest, Def Leppard and Annie Lennox.
Allom continued: “It all started when we did a demo for Dave Harries, who built Mark’s studio. An APRS director and former manager of AIR Studios, Dave has been a mainstay of the British recording scene for nearly four decades. He loved the Penteo demo and suggested we should hold a private event to let the UK hear for themselves.”
Established in 2005, British Grove Studios has become a first-stop destination for many artists favouring a blend of new and vintage equipment – its extensive collection of the latter includes two EMI mixing consoles.
