The following is an excerpt from “Westlake Pro goes All In on Atmos” by Thomas Kenny.
At the third annual Mix Presents Sound for Film event, held in mid-September at the Sony Pictures Studios lot in Culver City, Calif., longtime Los Angeles pro audio retailer/integrator Westlake Pro sponsored an expert panel called “Building an Immersive Room: Small, Medium and Large.”
It was moderated by Westlake CTO Jonathan Deans and included design consultant Jerry Steckling of JSX Audio, Peter Chaikin of JBL, Nathan Oishi from Sony, Bill Johnston of Formosa Group and Atmos-equipped studio owners Tom Brewer and Mark Binder, representing the small and medium facility. The panel was standing room only; there is a lot of interest in immersive audio.
“Atmos is what we wall wanted 5.1 to be,” says Westlake Pro President Joe Taupier. “It’s a giant step forward, and it’s fascinating how the technology works. That experience of being in an immersive room is what we wanted to bring to clients and to engineers, people who simply want to learn more about the technology.”
Acoustic Fields provided the speaker carbon platforms for the Westlake Pro Setup.
