Roundtable Post is an independent post-production facility known for their exemplary work on high end documentaries. Their credits include “Whitney: Can I Be Me”, “Andy Murray: Resurfacing”, and many more. Established in 2008 Roundtable quickly gaining a reputation for their attention to detail, friendliness, and focus on their client’s needs. Now the team works on a wide range of feature documentaries and delivers them in both UHD, Dolby Vision, and Dolby Atmos.
This year Roundtable Post expanded into an additional budling near their Macklin Street facility. They took this opportunity to build a state-of-the-art Dolby Atmos capable suite in addition to integrating Dante Audio over IP for the routing of audio throughout the building. Enabling the team to work on Atmos mixes in-house and allowing for more flexibility with their audio projects including mixing and VO recording. For their audio needs they choose to work with HHB Communications and the post-production focused sales team at Scrub.
“We were interested in having the ability to be able to work on theatrical mixes in house. Previously we relied on hiring other theatres, this new space gave us the chance to build our own room from the ground up,” commented Ben Coulson, Managing Director at Roundtable Post-production, “The team at Scrub provided helpful support with choosing the right equipment for the room to support Dolby Atmos and the Dante Audio over IP integration.”
The new suite includes a 7.1.4 Dynaudio set-up with the Dolby Home Entertainment Rendering Mastering Unite (HE-RMU), a 32-fader Avid Pro Tools | S6 console, and MTRX for control room monitoring. In addition to supporting the room upgrades the Technical Support team at HHB were also responsible for the speaker calibration in the new Dolby Atmos suite.
Alongside the Dolby Atmos suite Roundtable built a 4k projection Baselight grading suite with Christie 4220 and 7.1 monitoring for theatrical screenings, UHD HDR Baselight Grading suite with Sony BVMx300 monitoring, and a 7.1 premix suite that includes a large voiceover booth two Flame and Avid onlines as well as 11 offlines. Each room utilises Dynaudio monitoring for tonal consistency throughout the finishing suites and has the added flexibility of a comprehensive Dante network allowing for shared resources such as the VO booth.
“This was our first time working with Roundtable Post and it was great to get to work with their team start to finish,” says John Johnson, CTO at HHB Communications, “ from having them in to visit the demo room at Scrub all the way to the final speaker calibration of their suite. Roundtable has taken an already impressive facility and made it even more so.”
