Sony to Debut Revolutionary New Technology at Mix Presents Sound for Film & TV Event

Sony will launch its groundbreaking headphone-based technology on Day 1 of Mix Presents Sound for Film & TV, accompanied by multiple presentations of the technology in action.

Sony Pictures Studios, under the guidance of Tommy McCarthy, VP of Post-Production Facilities, has served as Host Partner for Mix Presents Sound for Film & Television since the debut in 2014, opening up their world-class re-recording stages, edit suites and Barbra Streisand Scoring Stage to sponsors and attendees.

For the past three years, the engineering and technology division of Sony has been working behind the scenes with the post-production facilities and creative teams to develop a revolutionary headphone-based technology that will change the way that post-production is done. This technology is especially relevant today with the adoption of remote-heavy workflows, and it will make its worldwide debut at this year’s Mix Presents Sound for Film & Television!
