France’s Dubbing Brothers Installs Meyer Sound for Dolby Atmos Mixing Stage

Located on the outskirts of Paris, Dubbing Brothers is a world-leading postproduction center for adapting major films into foreign languages. Its recently renovated Dolby Atmos mixing stage is now equipped with a Meyer Sound system, which has supported the dubbing and remixing of films including “Escape Plan,” “Saving Mr. Banks,” and the Dolby Atmos mix of “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.”

“When we decided to update our main 7.1 mixing room to Atmos, we wanted monitoring of the highest quality,” says Mathieu Taieb, sales director for Dubbing Brothers. “We knew other major post-production houses were using Meyer Sound for Atmos, so we arranged a session to listen to a Meyer Sound system. We were very impressed with what we heard. The sound was dynamic and precise, warm, and never aggressive. Both bass and high frequencies exhibited very high resolution.”

Supplied by Paris-based cinema audio specialist 44.1, the loudspeaker system was designed to Dolby Atmos specifications. It includes three Acheron® 80 screen channel loudspeakers, four X-800C cinema subwoofers in the front, two X-400C cinema subwoofers in the rear, and four HMS-12 and 34 HMS-10 cinema surround loudspeakers.

“I enjoy mixing on the system immensely,” says Taieb. “You can work all day on a movie with very high dynamic levels, and not feel tired or mugged by the sound. I’m continually impressed with the precision and clarity.”

Designed and supervised by Paul Henri Wagner of 44.1, the complete technical renovation of the room includes new wiring, a 244-channel/48-fader Avid System 5 mixing console, and two Pro Tools HDX systems.

Founded in 1989 and headquartered in St. Denis, Dubbing Brothers has satellite offices in the USA, Germany, Italy, and Belgium. The firm provides a complete range of audio, video, technical, and creative services for the global film and video entertainment industries. Dubbing Brothers operates under the leadership of Philippe Taieb, president and CEO, and Alexandre Taieb, general manager.
