LaboDigital Brings Mexican Cinema to New Era with Meyer Sound

Known primarily for producing history documentaries, in recent years the Mexican film industry has risen to international status receiving critical praise at major movie festivals for acting, cinematography, and direction. To prepare its facilities for 21st century digital cinema production, LaboFilms in Mexico City has installed a state-of-the-art mixing stage at LaboDigital. Based on CQ-1 loudspeakers, the new Meyer Sound system provides the linear sound quality that translates smoothly across post-production and theatre reproduction.
With its Meyer Sound system, the 30-year-old LaboFilms has provided a prime THX-certified mixing stage for filmmakers in Mexico. To date, ten full-length films have been made at LaboDigital including “Quinzaine des Realisateurs,” a Cannes Festival film; the Spanish, English, and Portuguese versions of “El Delfin;” as well as the Spanish adaptations of “Fantastic Mr. Fox” and “Tooth Fairy.” LaboDigital is also the chosen site for creating the print master for “Los Herederos,” a film sponsored by UNICEF.
“The creation of LaboDigital was intended to improve the standard of moviemaking in this country,” says manager of LaboFilms, Carlos Cortes, who coordinated the Meyer Sound installation with LaboDigital Directors Charles Bathe and Guillermo Alagón and Acoustic Worksolutions Group. “Mexico has successfully demonstrated that we have the directing and acting talent to make high-quality cinema productions, and with LaboDigital, we have the resources to support these efforts.”
The installed system includes three Meyer Sound CQ-1 loudspeakers in a left-center-right configuration behind a custom-made projection screen by Torrance, Calif.-based Stewart Filmscreen. Two X-800 subwoofers provide undistorted bass power, and a surround system of ten UPJ-1P VariO loudspeakers completes the system.
According to Cortes, the linearity of Meyer Sound loudspeakers makes the system ideal for audio post-production in cinema applications. “Meyer Sound products do not distort the audio signals, and this characteristic is crucial for high-quality audio mixing for films,” says Cortes.
Cortes adds that Meyer Sound’s commitment to customer support was essential in LaboFilms’ certification process with Dolby and THX. “It was Roberto Velazco’s recommendation for us to consider Meyer Sound,” says Cortes. “And then the Meyer factory took the initiative to conduct the correct tests, while the staff at Meyer Sound Mexico stood by us throughout the whole process.”
The LaboDigital mixing stage is one of the world’s top cinema facilities using Meyer Sound systems today. Other venues include University of Southern California's School of Cinematic Arts, the Bay Area’s American Zoetrope, Skywalker Sound, and ImageMovers Digital, which feature Meyer Sound’s Acheron-based Cinema Experience that was launched in 2009.
