New York, NY (July 1, 2013)-Digital Arts in Manhattan recently installed a new Meyer Sound 7.1 cinema monitoring system in its new post production theatre, deploying it on Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine and the recent HBO movie, Beyonce: Life Is But a Dream.
“With our new mix stage, we decided to take everything to the next level and redefine industry standards with meticulous attention to detail,” says Axel Ericson, founder of Digital Arts. “We’ve put a lot of focus into the design and architecture of our facility, and created a luxurious modern oasis in a lofty, sky-lit penthouse with best-of-class equipment.”
The Meyer Sound 7.1 monitoring system in the 30-seat mixing room comprises three Acheron Studio screen channel loudspeakers, three X-800C cinema subwoofers, and 12 HMS-10 cinema surround loudspeakers. A Galileo loudspeaker management system with two Galileo 408 processors provides system optimization.
“The system easily handled the big sound for concert segments in Beyonce’s HBO movie, but it also accurately carried the subtle intimacy of Blue Jasmine,” he explains. “In fact, before Woody Allen decided to mix here, his long-time legendary mixer, Lee Dichter, came in and played some of his old mixes. He noticed the clarity of the dialog, and a big smile spread across his face the second he heard the system.”
Digital Arts also provided dual 32-channel Avid ICON D-Control ES consoles linked to four Avid Pro Tools|HDX2 systems with satellite options and 512 channels of MADI I/O. In addition, the studio includes a Christie 4K projector and a 17-foot mesh screen from IMAGE Screens.
