Production & Post-Production House Expands Its Manhattan Facilities

Sim is a leading equipment rental, production and post-production company with locations in Los Angeles, New York, Toronto, Vancouver and Atlanta. They have recently completed a major expansion of their post-production facility in downtown Manhattan, NY. Of the seven new rooms there, four accommodate audio, including three 5.1 surround mix suites, one with Dolby Atmos® capability, and an ADR/VO recording studio, which can accommodate as many as five actors. All four new audio rooms and a central machine room are linked using a network employing components from Focusrite’s RedNet range of Dante® networked audio converters and interfaces. Four RedNet 5 Pro Tools® | HD bridges are located in the machine room, feeding the Pro Tools systems in each of the three broadcast audio mix suites. Two of those suites are equipped with RedNet 1 eight-channel A-D/D-A interfaces, while all three suites have RedNet 2 and/or RedNet A16R 16-Channel A-D/D-A interfaces. These three types of RedNet interface create a robust, efficient and effective AoIP infrastructure that has vastly streamlined the workflow for Sim.
