HHB Communications has provided Dolby’s UK headquarters in Royal Wootton Basset with an Avid Pro Tools | S6 modular control surface.
A multi-use theatre is used for the S6, to demonstrate the latest in Dolby technology and also for technical training, internal and external content creation and QCing Digital Cinema Packages.
The S6 is used to demonstrate a full Dolby Atmos mixing setup based around entirely in the box Pro Tools | HD 12 systems. The backbone of the system is a BSS Audio Soundweb London installation, which gives Dolby the flexibility to switch between theatrical replay and content creation environments.
Richard Stockdale, Manager, Produced Content, Content Services Group UK, Dolby said: “We need to be highly flexible in our workflows (receiving/sharing mix sessions with other facilities etc) so we were naturally drawn to a control surface over a more traditional mixing desk. The modular design of the S6 meant that we were able to create a control surface that would exactly suit our needs, both in terms of its physical form-factor and workflows. The great thing about the S6 is the flexibility of what it can control within Pro Tools. This flexibility allows us to demonstrate almost all the varieties of different mixing workflows with Dolby Atmos. With all the different ways in which the S6 can be configured, it means that when different mixers work in the theatre, they are able to work in a manner which they are accustomed to.”
