Santa Monica, CA (April 23, 2012)—In its new facility located in the heart of Santa Monica, CA, Lotus Post employs Harman's JBL LSR Series studio monitors and ScreenArray cinema loudspeakers for its film projects.
"Our mission is to be the best independent audio post facility in Los Angeles and offer an environment that fosters quality and creativity," said Michael Perricone, CEO of Lotus Post. "We handle a variety of projects, from feature films to promos to surround music mixing, with budgets ranging from $10,000 to $10 million."
Lotus Post offers a range of audio services for movies, TV and music recording. Its new 6,000-square-foot facility houses six post production studios, with another in the works. The facility's film projects have included Outrun, The Fighter and Thor, plus TV projects for Fox, Discovery Channel and Speed TV.
"A friend of mine had a pair of JBL LSR studio monitors, and I heard them a few years ago and liked them very much," Perricone added. "When we started Lotus Post at our original space in 2009, we took over a facility that already had JBL ScreenArray loudspeakers in two of the rooms. After working with these speakers and getting such consistently good results, we decided to equip every room with JBL systems when we moved Lotus Post to our new facility in Santa Monica."
Lotus Post has outfitted six of its rooms—Stages One through Six—with a range of models from the LSR6300 Series studio monitor line, plus JBL ScreenArray and cinema surround speakers in Stage One (Lotus Post's "Big Room") and cinema surround speakers in Stage Two.
"Every room at Lotus Post is designed to take advantage of today's audio technology to the maximum," Perricone noted. "We have to have sound we can believe in. The quality of our mixes can only be as good as the quality of what we're hearing."
