Voice Over Soho achieves Dolby Atmos Studio Certification

Posted on: Friday 22nd of March 2019

Voice Over Soho (Resolution V16.6), an independent recording studio specialising in Dolby Atmos, voiceover, ADR, sound design and audio post production, announced it is now one of the first studios globally to have been awarded the Dolby Atmos Home Entertainment Studio Certification. 

“We are one of the first studios in the world to have this certification. As an entrepreneur in the world of audio, I saw the potential for British companies to start making films and series’ in Dolby Atmos, which is now recognised as the benchmark in immersive sound. This certification enables us to take cinematic sound to new levels in the home,” said Peter Morris, director at Voice Over Soho. 

Working closely with HHB it has equipped its flagship studio, Arnason 1, with the new Dolby Atmos Mastering System which runs on a dedicated Rendering and Mastering Unit (RMU) offering 128 channels of MADI I/O via DAD AX-32. This is monitored by Genelec 8351 based Atmos providing a 7.1.4. SAM system from Pro Tools Ultimate HDX2 System all controlled by a 24 channel Avid S6. The room also has a 3.5 x 2m, 16:10, Acoustically Transparent Electric Screen with Laser projection.

“We want to be to the forefront of this era of digital platforms. We are aiming our new studio at the producers and sound supervisors of films and episodic series for online platforms such as Netflix, Amazon Prime and Sky,” said Morris. 

Since its introduction to cinemas in 2012, Dolby Atmos introduced the concept of object-based audio, in which sounds are represented as individual objects that can be located anywhere within the space above and around the listener. With Dolby Atmos tools, content creators can precisely place and move sounds anywhere in a viewer’s living room, including overhead, to make entertainment totally immersive. 

“Platforms like Netflix and Amazon Prime and a plethora of other channels are making their own content using Dolby Atmos, plus groundbreaking episodic TV series’ like Game of Thrones and the majority of this years top 30 grossing movies at the cinema are now produced in Atmos,” Morris said. “Add to that content today’s affordable Dolby Atmos-enabled sound bars, and you have a new level of sound in the home; it puts you at the centre of the action and gives you a realism and immersion that you have never experienced before.”
