INK Production Selects Meyer Sound for First Dolby Atmos Mixing Room in France

Meyer Sound cinema loudspeakers have been selected for use in France’s first Dolby Atmos mixing room, which opened at INK Production’s newly remodeled post-production facility in the heart of Paris. INK Production is the eighth film/video post-production facility in France to install Meyer Sound cinema loudspeakers.

The decision to specify Meyer Sound monitoring was made by Alexandre Widmer, INK Production’s general manager and cinema sound editor and mixer. Widmer won a César Award for Best Sound in 2009.
“I love great sound, and today there is simply nothing better than Meyer Sound for film sound mixing,” says Widmer.

The monitoring system in the stylish, high-ceilinged cinema mixing room consists of three Acheron® 80 screen channel loudspeakers, four X-800C cinema subwoofers, and 26 HMS-10 cinema surround loudspeakers installed laterally and overhead to Dolby Atmos specifications. In addition, two X-400C cinema subwoofers implement surround low-end management, and the system is optimized by a Galileo® loudspeaker management system with one Galileo 408 and one Galileo 616 processor.

“The low frequencies are tight, with fast transients, while the high frequencies are accurate but never aggressive or abrasive,” observes Widmer. “The sound is uniformly consistent, easy to work with, and less fatiguing than with the old ‘industry standard’ systems.”

Acoustical design for the mixing stage was entrusted to Christian Malcurt, a leading studio designer responsible for the design of the Digital Factory and Digimage post-production facilities. Paris-based 44.1, a systems integrator specializing in film and video production technologies, re-wired the room and supplied both the Meyer Sound loudspeakers and an AVID Euphonix System 5 console.

“Other sound mixers appreciate the system’s uniform quality and the working comfort that goes with it,” reports Widmer. “Whenever any film professionals come into the room—whether producers, film editors or sound editors—they always leave satisfied with what they’ve heard.”

Projects mixed in the new facility include the hit comedy “Les Profs” and two yet-to-be released films, “Un Intervalle de 9 Minutes” and the documentary “Mlle C,” the latter mixed by Widmer. The first Dolby Atmos mix will be “En Solitaire,” directed by Christophe Offenstein.

INK Production occupies a 1,300-square-meter, five-level structure housing a television mixing room and editing suites along with the main cinema mixing stage. INK Production was formed by the August 2012 merger of Dovitris, owned by Jean-Claude Walter, and Analog Factory, owned by Alexandre Widmer.

A total of 14 rooms in eight post-production facilities in France have been installed with Meyer Sound cinema systems, including INK, Piste Rouge and Film Factory in Paris, École Louis-Lumière and Digital Factory in St. Denis, Digimage in both Joinville and Montrouge, and Technicolor in Boulogne.
