Free Webinar: Building a Near-Field Immersive Room

Upcoming webinar explores designing and constructing immersive facilities.

New York, NY (April 4, 2019)—On April 30, Mix magazine and Dolby will present a live, free webinar, Building a Near-Field Immersive Room: Start to Finish. Register now and access the webinar on-demand anytime following the event.

Cheryl Ottenritter, owner and lead sound designer/re-recording mixer at Ott House in the Washington, D.C., area, recently completed the design/build of two mid-size Dolby Atmos-equipped post-production studios—one in her new Silver Springs facility and the second in her home. The two rooms communicate through new streaming technologies, providing efficient means of track approval for clients and collaborators. Here, Ottenritter presents a step-by-step walk-through of the process of designing and constructing two powerhouse near-field immersive studios within an existing space, from the initial layout of the room to the wiring and installation, breaking down the technical considerations and emerging technologies available for audio production and distribution.

This Webinar will provide a comprehensive, detailed approach from start to finish, including graphics and checklists for the business and technology decisions involved in building an immersive studio for episodic, theatrical and special-venue audio post-production.

• Room/space considerations: Dimensions and treatments
• First step: Determining the business. What is the room being used for?
• Infrastructure Requirements: Power, Wiring, Signal Distribution
• Monitoring System, Monitor Control
• Calibration & Implementation: Room-tuning and LF integration
• Mixing: Deliverables for multi-format distribution
