Auralex Acoustics Gets Animated with Blue Sky Studios

Isolation and Diffusion Add Sound Vibrancy to Animation Suites

Auralex - Blue Sky Studios

ATLANTA, GA – Academy Award-winning Blue Sky Studios, a feature film animation company known for its work on Robots and all three Ice Age movies, recently turned to Auralex Acoustics, the industry leader in innovative sound control solutions, to alleviate acoustic problems in its facility.

With four large 5.1 surround-sound and seven 2.1 Avid edit suites, the main acoustical concern was to isolate the sound between the rooms of the facility. The physical shape and dimensions of the suites created a challenge as many of the rooms are perfect rectangles and squares, which is not an acoustically ideal environment as sound will bounce and echo throughout the room, particularly at low frequencies. more

More Option Cards For Soundcraft Vi Series Add Broadcast Appeal And Bring Recording Opportunities

At IBC 2009, Soundcraft is featuring more option interface cards for its Vi Series Digital Live Sound consoles, expanding the applications of the highly popular digital mixer into broadcast, and adding easy capabilities for direct recording from the desk.

Using the ADAT card, it is possible to connect two ports of eight channels (inputs and outputs) to an ADAT-equipped hard disk or software-based recorder, so two cards would enable 32 channels of audio to be recorded and played back almost instantaneously.

The SDI and Dolby® E cards will be welcomed by broadcasters, as it means the desk can handle the de-embedding of audio channels from within SDI video streams (and re-embedding for onward transmission), and the decoding of up to 8 channels of audio from a Dolby Digital or Dolby E stream. All individual audio channels are then available within the Vi Series’ digital patchbay for more
