Northridge, CA (May 30, 2006)–In a project that brings together world-class talent with the sonic intelligence and reliability of JBL Professional loudspeakers, Ascent Media Management Services has outfitted its new Digital Media Data Center in Burbank, CA with JBL LSR6300 Series studio monitors. Three audio rooms–one large Telecine/DI suite and two large non-linear editing suites–are equipped with the monitors.
Ascent Media Management Services provides owners and creators of film and video libraries an entire complement of services necessary to manage, format, and distribute content worldwide. The company develops turnkey solutions for its customers, beginning with specialized offerings including format conversion, duplication, film transfer, transform, mastering as well as a variety of digital asset management and services which include restoration and preservation of damaged content, archiving, film laboratory processing, DVD authoring, and mastering operations.
In the Telecine/DI/Digital Source Mastering suite, Ascent used a combination of LSR6300 Series studio monitors and JBL cinema loudspeakers to create a hybrid system that provides the feel of large theatrical spaces. Because Digital Cinema uses a matte screen, Ascent opted to use the LSR6332 on each side and above the screen for the front array. Additionally, a pair of LSR6312 subwoofers was installed below the screen. At the back of the suite, JBL 8330A three-way cinema surround speakers give the room a big, theater-type atmosphere.
In the audio bays and non-linear editing suites, Ascent uses JBL LSR6328P studio monitors for full surround monitoring. In the rooms where space is limited, LSR6325P monitors are used with each room containing LSR6312P subwoofers.
Currently, the JBL loudspeakers are being used as reference monitors for all of the Digital Media Data Center’s critical listening environments.
