44.1 Supplies Two French Film Post Facilities with Meyer Sound EXP Monitoring

Two of the most in-demand film post-production companies in Paris, Digimage Cinema and Piste Rouge, have recently equipped their key mixing and screening rooms with powerful and low-distortion EXP cinema audio systems from Meyer Sound. The systems were specified and installed by Paris-based 44.1, the leading French systems provider of high-end post-production facilities for film, video, and broadcast.

The EXP system at Digimage Cinema, installed in a screening room dedicated to final checking of new films in various formats, comprises Acheron Studio screen channel loudspeakers, X-800C subwoofers, HMS-10 surround loudspeakers, and a Galileo loudspeaker management system with Galileo 408 processors.

Serge Arthus, sound department manager for Digimage Cinema, noticed the improvements immediately. “There’s more definition at the high end of the spectrum, lower distortion, improved clarity, greater headroom, and very good phase stability,” he observes. “Several clients have commented on the excellent definition and dynamics. One told me, ‘At last, the right sound has been found.’”

At its new facility on the west side of Paris, Piste Rouge also offers its clients the benefits of consistently linear EXP monitoring. Piste Rouge’s larger auditorium 1, used for film mixing and trailers for major French distributors, is equipped with Acheron Studio screen channel loudspeakers, while the smaller auditorium 2 is fitted with the more compact Acheron Designer screen channel loudspeakers. Completing the 7.1-surround capable systems are X-800C cinema subwoofers, HMS-10 surround loudspeakers, and Galileo loudspeaker management systems with Galileo 408 processors.

Paul-Henri Wagner, owner of 44.1, has a long-standing relationship with Digimage and Piste Rouge, having previously supplied both facilities with Avid Euphonix S5 mixing consoles.

Established in 1985, and taking its name from the sampling frequency of the then-new compact disc, 44.1 has since grown to become a leading system integrator for film, video, and multimedia enterprises. The list of clients served by 44.1 includes the top tier of French broadcast networks, film studios, post-productions houses, recording studios, and live event production companies. 44.1 was appointed as a French dealer for Meyer Sound EXP systems earlier this year.

EXP monitoring systems have been installed at renowned facilities such as Skywalker Sound, Wildfire Studios, and American Zoetrope, as well as De Lane Lea in London. EXP has also gained widespread acceptance as the ideal complement to 3D digital cinema at theatres across North America, Asia, and Europe, including 60 screens at CinemaxX in Germany and Denmark.
