In addition to a company restructure, Wow and Flutter West has opened Stage A, a 10,000-cubic-foot, large-format film/TV mixing theater in Santa Monica, Calif. The room features custom, two-operator, dual Digidesign HD3 systems with dual integrated ICON consoles, a 5,500-watt THX-spec JBL Cinema Array system featuring QSC digital cinema amplifiers, a 17-foot diagonal Stewart film screen, a Martinsound Multimax EX custom monitoring controller, Virtual VTR and Kona HD picture playback interfaces, and command seating for 15 to 30.

Stage A’s system is capable of playing back upward of 400 tracks simultaneously and can accommodate all formats up to and including IMAX.
According to Academy Award-winning sound mixer Jeffrey Perkins (Dances With Wolves), “Stage A is quite simply a really great-sounding room and provides a first-class experience. Also, the fact that it’s located in Santa Monica is a huge plus for all of the directors who live on the Westside.”
