NEW YORK CITY — Artist owned and operated audio post studio Sound Lounge (www.soundlounge.com) recently upgraded its Dolby Atmos mixing and authoring services to provide enhanced audio for its clients and upcoming projects. The studio’s film & television division performed its initial Dolby installation in 2018 and now updated its main mix stage with a brand new Dolby Atmos renderer as part of a three-system upgrade. With multiple configurations possible, this increased flexibility will allow a more streamlined workflow and larger capacity for future projects.
“As an artist, using Atmos gives more flexibility and provides a more immersive experience than traditional 5.1 or stereo mixes,” says Steve “Major” Giammaria, supervising sound editor/re-recording mixer at Sound Lounge. “On the technical side, it's one mix that will render specifically for each viewer's playback environment. This provides a richer, more authentic experience for each viewer. As New York’s leading independent audio post facility, we are committed to providing our clients with the tools they need to tell their stories in the latest immersive formats.”
Compatible with both headphones and home theaters, Atmos takes surround sound to the next level. Sound Lounge has used its upgraded Atmos resources to mix and author television shows, commercials and other content, including Season 2 of the hit children’s series Helpsters on Apple TV+.
“We’re excited to see how clients continue to embrace the new Dolby Atmos system,” says Giammaria. “The opportunities are endless.”
