Confederation College’s Centre for Applied Media Production (CAMP) program recently outfitted its newest media arts facility in Thunder Bay, Ontario, with Auralex Acoustics’ acoustical treatment products. The newly renovated space, which is used for film, broadcast-television and multimedia production, includes new edit labs, a video studio and new mixing theater. In conjunction with Canadian sales representative Pacific Island Audio, as well as the acoustical contractor from Unifi Corporation in Waterloo, Ontario, Auralex presented an economical solution to add sound treatment to CAMP’s mixing theater and voice-over booth.
“The first thing that impressed us about Auralex Acoustics was its free Personalized Room Analysis on its Website,” says Steve Robinson, project manager at Confederation College. “The analysis gave us a clear indication of what we needed and the options that we had to work with. Their products were easy to install, and with the brackets Auralex provides, the treatments can be moved or adjusted easily. The end result is that Auralex’s products successfully met our requirements.”
The acoustical redesign involved the installation of 16 24x48x2-inch C24 ELiTE ProPanels, six 24x48x-inch ELiTE Corner Traps, 36 24x48x1-inch B22 ELiTE ProPanels and 14 23.25×23.25×3-inch pArtScience SpaceArray Diffusers throughout the facility’s three post-production studios and its audio room.

The school’s Centre for Applied Media Production (CAMP) offers the integration of digital technology with program design, facility expertise and learning strategy.
