TORONTO — Deluxe Toronto Ltd. (www.bydeluxetoronto.com) has completed a major upgrade of its mixing rooms. Improvements include the introduction of Dolby Atmos technology to Mix 1, which is among Canada’s largest film mixing stages. Further upgrades include the addition of JBL M2 Master Reference monitors.
“The introduction of Dolby Atmos, complemented with speaker and amp upgrades from Harman’s JBL Professional and Crown Audio brands, makes our new mix theaters the most technically-complete in Canada for film and TV sound re-recording,” says Nick Iannelli, vice president of post production operations at Deluxe Toronto. The new additions, he says, allow the studio to “state unequivocally that you will hear a difference in fidelity and sound clarity when mixing at Deluxe.”
“Dolby recognizes the importance and value of having a strong presence in Canada’s vital post production community,” adds Curt Behlmer, senior vice president of content solutions and industry relations at Dolby Laboratories. “We couldn’t be more pleased and know that this respected Dolby Atmos mixing stage — our first in Canada — will help filmmakers realize their creative visions going forward.”
Deluxe’s tech upgrades coincide with the company’s recent relocation to a new, state-of-the-art facility in downtown Toronto. Recent projects at the facility include feature work on Atom Egoyan’s The Captive and David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars. Deluxe soon will start post production on Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak. On the television side, Deluxe has contributed to Vikings, Beauty and the Beast and Penny Dreadful.
