IDEAS announces the opening of its new post-production audio mix room, which was constructed at the IDEAS Studio in downtown Orlando, Fla. The mix stage is capable of mixing feature films, made-for-TV movies, corporate image pieces, and Internet-based communications.
IDEAS’ new post-production audio mix room
“In our previous facility we had wonderful audio spaces, but the rooms were designed and built for the specifications of the 1980s, whereas this space was built with up to the minute design and technical specifications,” says John Lux, president of IDEAS. “This room is an acoustically designed and built critical listening room that will allow us to continue the audio mix work we have done in the past for made-for-TV movies, miniseries, episodic television, and independent films, as well as the variety of special venue and corporate work we do.”
The post audio mix stage houses a 32-fader Avid ICON integrated console, custom designed speakers and subwoofers from Bag End, and a 1,080-pixel projector with a 12-foot screen. The mix stage was acoustically designed by Alactronics, Inc., in Wellesley, Mass., and then constructed by the Collage Companies of Orlando, along with Southern Acoustics, All Electric of Orlando, and F&S Cabinets.
“The IDEAS team has been doing great audio work for many years,” says Suzy Spang, VP, Film & Entertainment Technology of the Metro Orlando Film and Entertainment Commission. “To have them make the type of investment that they have says a lot about their commitment to the post-production business, the Central Florida community, and the Downtown Orlando Creative Village, and reaffirms their place as a top destination for post-production work in the Southeast region.”
The award-winning team at IDEAS, lead by Senior Audio Mixer Rob Hill, has been involved with 13 movies in recent years, including the Emmy Award nominated and Golden Globe winning miniseries Elvis (CBS), four movies for Lifetime, four movies in the Roxy Hunter franchise for Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and Nickelodeon, and three independent films, in addition to numerous other network and cable broadcast and corporate projects.
