SDI Media Expands Services with New Dolby Atmos Suite in Italy


ROME: SDI Media has opened a new, custom-built Dolby Atmos theatrical mixing suite in Rome, expanding its theatrical service offering.

The addition of the suite in Rome extends SDI Media’s Dolby-certified theatrical service offering to include 12 recording/mixing rooms across Denmark, Germany, Italy, Poland and Spain. SDI Media is able to provide content owners with full-service capabilities for the production of high-quality audio deliverables for local and global distribution of theatrical, home entertainment, OTT, VOD and broadcast content. SDI Media is capable of producing soundtracks in Italian and other languages with the fully immersive three-dimensional sound experience enabled by Dolby Atmos.

SDI Media partnered with acoustic design consultancy Munro Acoustics to design a modern suite that enhances the full potential of Dolby Atmos and its moving sound technology. SDI Media now has owned and operated facilities in both Milan and Rome that cover the entire Italian marketplace, from theatrical cinematographic to broadcast, with two dubbing suites in Milan and seven dubbing suites complemented by two 5.1 TV mixing rooms in Rome.

“With the new mixing suite, we have expanded audio services for advertisers, content creators and distributors who are looking for capable providers,” said Mauro Torrente, the business development manager at SDI Media. “We are proud to support our existing clients and attract new clients with the most advanced audio production capabilities for theatrical, home entertainment and broadcast.”

Daniele Turchetta, the operations manager for SDI Media Italy, commented, “The underlying technical-scientific planning is what makes this construction unique. Starting with an empty space, we maximized the size of the suite to produce an acoustic performance that is the epitome of excellence.”

Dario Bonucci, country manager for SDI Media Italy, added, “Thanks to the new Dolby Atmos mixing suite, our sound and synchronization offering is now complete, cementing our technical excellence in this field. This is an exciting opportunity for us as we cater to a rapidly evolving market.”
