Halo Post has added an additional dubbing suite to 179 Wardour Street, marking the final part of the extension to its adjoining Noel Street HQ.
Studio 5 is for both TV mix work and DCP 5.1 and 7.1 theatrical projects. It will also be used as a pre-mix room for Halo’s Dolby licensed Studios 1 and 3.
The new room is pre-wired for Dolby Atmos and includes a Pro Tools HDX2, a 24-fader Avid S6 M40 surface and a custom Dynaudio 7.1 speaker system.
Head of audio operations Richard Addis said: “We’ve taken great care to make the room as versatile as possible without compromising quality in any area.”
In the same building Halo has also built a dedicated 5.1 audio editing room for its head of sound editorial Jay Price.
Situated directly adjacent to the new studio, the room features a Pro Tools HD Native system and and 5.1 Dynaudio Air 6 speakers.
Jigsaw24 and CB Electronics provided kit and installation with Level Acoustic doing the design and Munro Acoustics taking responsibility for the custom speakers.
In 2013 Halo took on space in Wardour Street - previously occupied by 179 Post Production – so that it could ‘knock through’ from, and extend, its Noel Street facility.
