Nottingham, UK (May 22, 2009)–Acoustic and studio design consultancy White Mark Ltd. has completed the new home of Spool Post in Nottingham, UK.
A five-story 1920s Art Deco building in Nottingham city center is currently being transformed into Antenna, a digital media business center, complete with dedicated meeting spaces, offices, bar and restaurant. The center, which is due to be completed this summer, is also the new home of Spool Post, an audio post production facility that specializes in sound-to-picture for film and television.
The new-look Spool incorporates a Dolby Digital 5.1 approved film dubbing and mixing theatre, a stereo mixing suite, a voice over booth and Foley stage as well as three additional editing suites, all of which are linked to the main theatre so that projects can be easily transferred from one room to another. The entire facility is equipped with Pro Tools|HD throughout, while the main dubbing theatre also incorporates an Icon D-Command mixing desk and a custom designed Exigy 5.1/6.1 monitoring system.
Spool, which began life as a music recording studio before moving into sound to picture, has worked on a wide range of projects including award-winning feature films, documentaries, commercials and shorts.
“We are absolutely delighted with the new facility, and particularly with the work White Mark has carried out,” says Greg Marshall, Spool’s Technical Director. “We chose White Mark for this project on the recommendation of Nigel Heath at Hackenbacker in London, whose facilities we had used in the past for projects. The rooms at Hackenbacker are all White Mark-designed and sound phenomenal. Having experienced that kind of quality, we knew there was only one company in the running when it came to choosing our acoustic consultants.”
Over the last decade White Mark has designed and supervised the construction of over 170 audio production suites worldwide, including more than 100 audio post production control rooms in London’s Soho alone.
