Biggleswade, UK (July 22, 2015)—Belgium-based Galaxy Studios, home of Auro-3D sound technology, put its PMC 9.1 speaker system to work recently on a film that premiered at Cannes.
Galaxy Studios' main Auro API scoring, recording and mixing room is equipped with PMC IB1S speakers in a traditional left, center, right configuration. PMC twotwo.6 speakers are used for the rear channels while PMC twotwo.5 speakers are positioned in each corner of the studio at above-head height to give an immersive 3D feel. The system was supplied by PMC Professional Benelux distributor Joystick Audio.
It was recently put to use mixing the 4K/3D film Odysseo 3D by Cavalia, which made its debut at the Cannes Film Festival as part of the Marché du Film. Directed by Korean film director Sung-Bok “Myron” Jung, this all-immersive experience is based on an ambitious live show featuring equestrian arts and acrobatic performances, which was created by entertainment company Cavalia Inc. Jung also wanted a 3D sound experience so that the audience would feel as though they were in the venue with the artists, and chose Wilfried Van Baelen's Auro-3D technology.
"We really enjoyed mixing this film because it is so spectacular," Robin Reumers says. "Auro-3D technology added an exciting new dimension to the viewing experience, and we were delighted that Myron chose to work with us on this project."
