PMC will demonstrate its significant contributions to the immersive audio market by displaying a full Dolby Atmos-certified monitoring system at this year’s AES Convention in New York.
The UK loudspeaker manufacturer is now working closely with Dolby as a strategic partner for its AtmosÆ immersive audio solution. PMC monitors form the backbone of many Dolby Atmos-certified facilities, including Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, MSM Studios in Munich and Kraftwerk’s Kling Klang Studio in Dusseldorf where a PMC-based 9.1 Dolby Atmos monitoring system was installed to compile an audio/video documentary collection entitled 3-D The Catalogue.
At AES New York, which takes place at the Javits Convention Centre from October 16-18 2019, PMC will equip demo suite 1E06 with a Dolby Atmos 7.1.4 setup consisting of an IB2S-XBD-A LCR system, complemented with six result6 surround channels, a special preview of the new BB7 Active Subwoofer and result6 overhead monitors. This will be used for presentations and for PMC’s Masters of Audio seminar programme, featuring high-profile audio industry movers and shakers who will speak about music and audio production.
Maurice Patist, president of PMC US, said: “The accuracy and transparency of PMC speakers, combined with their ability to reproduce big bass brilliantly, makes them ideally suited to immersive audio mixing. Already hugely popular in film and TV, the Atmos immersive format is gathering momentum in the music production market and we are delighted that our strategic partnership with Dolby and Universal Music Group’s Capitol Studios is helping to facilitate this. With PMC monitoring you can totally trust what you are hearing because their resolution and image placement reveals every nuance.”
Alongside its presentations and Masters of Audio seminars, PMC will also have a booth in the AES exhibition where it will meet and greet visitors. Here, the company will also showcase its smaller monitors such as the twotwo series and the result6 compact nearfield reference monitor.
PMC has a permanent demo facility in Brooklyn New York, as well as demo facilities in Los Angeles and Nashville. During AES, guests will be given the opportunity to visit the New York facility and hear the full range of PMC monitoring products.
