Purpose built to meet the varied mixing and deliverable requirements that are demanded of today’s productions, the 9.1.4 speaker configuration offers the maximum flexibility from full spatial audio mixing for HETV workflows through to stereo.
The room was exquisitely designed and built by the accomplished Munro Acoustics and boasts perfect acoustics for HETV mixing. The Dante AoIP configured room has been designed to a premium technical specification with an Avid S6 M40 mixing desk, MTRX audio interface inc. 128 channel Dante and SPQ calibration cards, Focusrite Rednet A16R and X2P’s, custom built Dynaudio speakers, Chord amplifiers, Dolby Atmos RMU, and high-performance Mac Pro at the heart of the room.
Clients can review their final pictures on either the 4.5m screen via either the Canon XEED laser projector, a 55” UHD TV or a 24” Sony PVM A250 OLED monitor. Aida HD cameras in the voice over booths and control room are connected via a Blackmagic SDI router providing ultimate flexibility linking all three Bayley Street Audio theatres and Commentary booths.
