Periscope Post & Audio is Dolby Atmos-ready with the construction of a new theatrical mix stage at its Hollywood facility.
The stage was designed by Audio Intervisual Design (AID) with a dual-operator Avid S6 console and Avid Pro Tools Ultimate workstations with MTRX interfaces, supporting Dante, MADI, AES and analog audio. “It’s a very tight sound with a lot of headroom,” said AID principal Jim Pace in a statement provided by Periscope. “It is not going to be challenged by even the most taxing mixes.”
Re-recording mixers Rick Ash and Ron Eng are already using the stage for a 10-episode streaming series with a fall premiere date and a musical bent. They’re working together on the show with supervising sound editor Tom de Gorter of Atomic Sound, Periscope said.
Also available now at Periscope in Hollywood are an ADR stage and layback/QC room, with three additional stages for streaming and home theater mixing coming online this fall — all of them Atmos-capable with S6 consoles and Pro Tools Ultimate.
With the new Atmos capabilities, Chicago-based Periscope says it aims to be a comprehensive source for high-end picture and sound services for Hollywood. “We’re tailoring this facility to A-level cinema and streaming clients who value quality,” said Ben Benedetti, GM of the Hollywood operation, in a prepared statement. “We want to support their stories and visions.”
