Winter Park, FL (PRWEB) December 25, 2009 — Full Sail University (www.fullsail.edu), an award winning media institution, is pleased to announce our professionally designed postproduction Dubbing Stage has now received the honor of being the first school named as a Dolby® Digital print master facility in the state of Florida. Full Sail joins an exclusive list of professional facilities approved for Dolby Digital print masters.
“Dolby Digital print master facilities provide the highest quality results and exceed expectations set by industry standards,” said Bill Allen, Senior Director of Production Services, Dolby Laboratories, Inc. “Housing a facility of this caliber on their campus is a testament to Full Sail’s commitment to educational excellence and an enhanced student experience.”
To achieve this status from Dolby, the Dubbing Stage went through an extensive approval process including: verifying speaker positions relative to mix position, tuning the mixing studio to match Dolby specifications, and matching Dolby required speaker levels. Dolby Applications Engineer Steve Smith visited Full Sail to commission and approve the Dubbing Stage as a Dolby Digital print master facility, and to complete the print master for the film, Letters to God, which used the Dubbing Stage to mix the film’s final soundtrack.
Full Sail’s Dubbing Stage features an up-to-date Harrison MPC3-D mixing desk, high-definition video and 35mm projectors, and multiple Pro Tools HD systems, as well as theater seats for private screenings and an Academy Award-winning theater surround sound system from JBL.
“This is great accomplishment for Full Sail University,” said Michael Orlowski, Dubbing Stage Engineer. “As a Dolby approved mix facility, we can offer Florida Filmmakers more opportunities to keep films in Florida and further expand our position as an educational leader in the entertainment industry.”
