Natick, MA (November 28, 2012)—SSI, which specializes in cinema trailers for films such as The Hobbit, Rise of the Guardians and Cloud Atlas, has purchased a new Genelec 7.1 monitoring system.
The new system, which was installed in September, consists of three Genelec 8260A tri-amplified active monitors for the LCR array, four Genelec 8250A bi-amplified active monitors for the rear and side surrounds, and a Genelec 7271A active subwoofer. All three of these products reflect Genelec's recently introduced Smart Active Monitor (SAM) concept, which allows monitors to be controlled with digital networking to build computer-controlled systems of monitors.
All seven of SSI’s mix rooms are fitted with Genelec speakers, including 8240A speakers for stereo monitoring. SSI provides a range of services to the film industry, including 5.1 theatrical trailer mixing, 5.1 digital audio sweetening, sound design, telecine, full service audio transfers and digital delivery services. RSPE Audio Solutions in Los Angeles sold the Genelec speakers to SSI.
