Deluxe Opens New York Mixing Stage


Deluxe New York announced the opening of a new sound mixing stage at its Hudson Street facility. The new 18-seat theater includes a 22-foot screen and an Avid ProTools Dual Icon board with a full complement of inputs for additional drives and workstations.

The room is capable of audio playback in just about every format, including 5.1 and 7.1, Dolby SR, Dolby Digital (SRD) and DTS.

“Recently, we’ve seen a considerable increase in demand for major mixing stages in New York,” Deluxe New York’s general manager, Domenic Rom explained. “This luxurious space offers producers a chance to mix any kind of feature or television project. For the many productions also working at Deluxe NY for their color grading or editorial needs, this top-flight mixing stage in the same building is an extra convenience.”

Supervising sound editor and re-recording mixer Craig Henighan (Black Swan, Snow White and the Huntsman) and his team christened the space for some work they were doing on a major studio feature slated for release next year. “The technical setup was completely familiar and the room sounds very good,” said Henighan. “We were in there as soon as the paint was dry and we could do our work exactly as we would at any top-level mixing stage.”

Vicon Introduces Mobile Mocap at SIGGRAPH

Motion capture systems developer Vicon is previewing a futuristic new “Mobile Mocap” technology at SIGGRAPH 2011 in Vancouver. Moving mocap out of the lab and into the field, Vicon's Mobile Mocap system taps several new technologies, many years in the making. At the heart of Mobile Mocap is a very small lipstick-sized camera that enables less obtrusive, more accurate facial animation data. The new cameras capture 720p (1280X720) footage at 60 frames per second. In addition, a powerful processing unit synchronizes, stores, and wirelessly transmits the data, all in a tiny wearable design.
