The Lincoln Sound Theatre
Officially opened on 6th APRIL 2012 by Visiting Professor TREVOR DANN
The brand new Dubbing Theatre comprises a large Control room with projected High Definition pictures and 5.1 sound system, a Foley room (Sound Effects and footsteps), a Commentary/ADR room and a computer room. We are running Pro Tools with the Digidesign 003 control surface, with pictures front projected onto a suspended screen. The work started in September 2010 and we have tried hard to make it as professional, creative and practical as possible.
A big thank you to Matthew Croft, VC Mary Stuart, Sarah Barrow, and to Dean of Faculty David Sleight – this new build had their full backing and support, and I would like to extend a big thank you to them for that.
Also hank you to :
Craig Bratley, Mark Aldridge, Andrew Armstong, Steve Kirby, David McSherry, Bryan Rudd, Geoff Thompson, Ronnie Fowler, Sarah Barrow, Quadrant, & Apple!
The bespoke desk built by Paul Dalton, houses the mic pre-amps, and headphone amps, along with Mac screens and PC screens. Audio Visual installation was by Quadrant, and employs HDMI and Fibre Channel cabling to connect the computers, TV screens and the control systems.
This dubbing theatre provides for the first time full sound mixing to picture to broadcast standards, and is a real statement of the ambitions of the Lincoln School of Media and University of Lincoln.
