Bayley St - Dolby Atmos Theatre

Clear Cut Group is opening a Dolby Atmos audio mixing room at its Bayley Street facility in central London. The room has been purpose-built to meet the varied mixing and deliverable requirements of today’s productions, the 9.1.4 speaker configuration offers everything from full spatial audio mixing for HETV workflows through to stereo.

The Dante AoIP configured room was designed and built by Munro Acoustics, and includes an Avid S6 M40 mixing desk, MTRX audio interface including 128 channel Dante and SPQ calibration cards, Focusrite Rednet A16R and X2Ps, custom-built Dynaudio speakers, Chord amplifiers, Dolby Atmos RMU, and a high-performance Mac Pro.

Clients can review final pictures in the suite, on either a 4.5m screen, via a Canon XEED laser projector; a 55” UHD TV; or a 24” Sony PVM A250 OLED monitor.

Aida HD cameras in the voiceover booths and control room are connected via a Blackmagic SDI router, linking all three Bayley Street audio theatres and commentary booths.

The opening of the Dolby Atmos room is the latest in a planned programme of upgrades across all Clear Cut Group’s central London sites to expand their capacity for delivering content and meeting the challenging specifications of global streamers.

Managing director Rowan Bray said: “The installation of this suite is ideal for high-end TV and theatrical productions. The suite sounds great and is a beautiful space complementing the rich heritage of the building.”

Ben Newth, head of audio, added: “The audio team is delighted with the new room – it looks and sounds incredible. We’re really excited to be mixing and delivering in Dolby Atmos.”

Jess Nottage, technical director, said: “Adding such a high-spec Dolby Atmos theatre that is sonically and visually stunning to Clear Cut Group’s service offering is very exciting and gives our very talented dubbing mixers the ultimate tool to deliver the most creative and immersive sound mixes for our clients.”
