Moscow February 2014: Housed in an impressive purpose built complex in the North of Moscow, Russia’s CineLab SoundMix studio complex is considered the flagship for sound in the Russian cinema post-production industry. The complex boasts a variety of studios including three Dolby Premier mixing theatres, built around Avid System 5 consoles and Pro Tools DAWs. One of the mixing stages was recently upgraded to the new Dolby Atmos format.
O M Network Owner; Michael Tovkalo, responsible for the installation, explained: “The whole setup demanded uncompromising signal quality. We have always found Van Damme cables extremely reliable which is why we immediately decided to use Van Damme cable solutions.”
The installation required connected patch panels and dynamic processing devices using digital multicores for which Van Damme Green Series Digi Grade AES / EBU 110 Ohm UP-OFC was chosen. For the studio’s main monitors, Van Damme Black Series Tour Grade speaker cable was used with 2×6, 0 mm2. For the live recording studios’ tie-lines they chose Van Damme Brown Series starquad multicores, which connect terminal breakout boxes in the studios and terminating panel sections in the central control room.
CineLab SoundMix Studios is capable of providing the complete gamut of audio post-production for film, television, computer games and other modern art audiovisual formats. Besides three Dolby Premier dubbing studios, there is a 5.1 mixing studio, two ADR/voice over suites, a large Foley stage, a scoring stage, sound editing rooms, sound design studios and a music arrangements room. As for the equipment and productivity level, the complex is a strong competitor for many of the top-level audio post production facilities around the globe.
