3D immersive sound technology for movie audio production

Singapore, 17 May 2017 – Mediacorp, Singapore’s leading media company with the most comprehensive range of media platforms is upping the ante on audio post production services with the launch of its Movie-Mixing Studio (MMS), the first certified Auro3D and Auromax mixing studio in Southeast Asia.

Designed by world renowned audio engineer and studio designer, David Hawkins and fitted with Barco Cinema projector, 43 high-end Quested speakers and Fairlight EVO digital workstation, the 70 square metre MMS is the musician’s dream studio for producing any digital audio format, including surround sound in 5.1, 7.1, and 3D immersive sound in Auro 11.1 and AuroMax 26.1, and is the most advanced of the seven sound mixing studios owned by Audio Post, a unit in Mediacorp specialising in music and sound mixing.

Doreen Neo, Mediacorp Head Studios said, “Audio mixing is a highly valued component in the television and movie production process. Since 1979, Audio Post has been producing music and sound effects for local television, moving on to sound-mixing services for the local and regional film industries in the 1980s.”

Added Ms Neo, “With the first certified Auro3D and Auromax Movie Mixing Studio (MMS) in Southeast Asia, we can now provide the highest possible audio standard, sound design, music composing services all under one roof; in short, a one-stop shop for audio post production services for our business partners.”

Jack Neo, Founder and CEO of JTeam said, "Our collaboration with Audio Post goes back to 2002 in our first movie project, I Not Stupid.  Over the years, we have worked on many more movie projects together and I continue to be impressed by its professionalism and creativity. I want to congratulate Audio Post for embarking on a new journey with Auro3D technology, to bring music and sound mixing standards in Singapore to a new high."

The official opening of the MMS was held on 17 May 2017 at the Mediacorp Campus in one-north and attended by some 150 guests from the local and regional movie industry. Mr Chee Hong Tat, Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Communications and Information & Ministry of Health was the Guest-of-Honour at the event.
