Ascent Media Management Services goes with JBL

Ascent Media Management Services has outfitted its new Digital Media Data Center in Burbank, CA, with JBL LSR6300 Series studio monitors. Three audio rooms — one large Telecine/DI suite and two large nonlinear editing suites — are equipped with the monitors. Ascent provides a complement of content management and distribution services for its customers.

In the Telecine/DI/Digital Source Mastering suite, Ascent used a combination of LSR6300 Series studio monitors and JBL cinema loudspeakers to create a hybrid system that provides the feel of large theatrical spaces. Because Digital Cinema uses a matte screen, Ascent opted to use the LSR6332 on each side and above the screen for the front array. A pair of LSR6312 subwoofers was installed below the screen. At the back of the suite, JBL 8330A three-way cinema surround speakers complete the system.

In the audio bays and nonlinear editing suites, Ascent uses JBL LSR6328P studio monitors for full surround monitoring. In the rooms where space is more limited, LSR6325P monitors along with LSR6312P subwoofers.
