HHB Provides Avid Console and Genelec Configuration for Rapid Pictures
Communications Ltd. has provided Rapid Pictures’ new 5.1-equipped audio post
production room with a 24-fader Avid D-Command console and a Genelec DSP
loudspeaker system in a custom configuration.
Rapid’s new audio post suite is
built in a previously unused roof space, and the complete project involved the
design and construction of the room and installation of new equipment. Due to
the suite’s unique space, Rapid made the decision to install a bespoke
loudspeaker configuration comprised of three Genelec 1238CF loudspeakers, a
pair of 8240A nearfield monitors and a 7271A subwoofer.
introduced 1238CF is a three way DSP loudspeaker, designed to be flush mounted
and only 235mm deep. For Rapid, the 1238CF’s design meant the studio’s front
wall could be designed to maximise room size and acoustic requirements. The
Genelec GLM DSP management kit provides comprehensive analysis and set up of
any configuration of the DSP loudspeakers, and as part of the package HHB
provided a commissioning service for the loudspeakers. The studio design and
installation was provided by Peter Johnston of One-Ten Productions Ltd.
