We continue moving forward with the design of our new audio mixing suite. While we have certainly hit bumps in the road we think the makings are there for a really great room. As was the case with the original part of the build out, we get to a point where we have everything we could possibly want in the room and then the financial realities set in and we need to regroup. That’s where we are right now. We have our initial budget numbers and we are over where we need to be. The next phase of the process is determining how to value engineer the room while NOT altering the acoustics at all. Aesthetics and “wants” will be addressed so the “needs” of the room are not sacrificed. The great thing we have realized since we’ve been here is our Audio B room can do a lot more audio work than we originally thought so we really haven’t skipped a beat in audio.
This week Dennis mounted one of our plasma screens in Bay 4, our Final Cut Pro edit suite. Now we have the LCDs in Bay 1 & 2 and the Lobby and a plasma in the Machine Room and Bay 4. We’re still figuring out the best allocation for the two DLPs and the remaining two plasmas.
And finally, we thoroughly enjoy having clients in that spent time at the old place and are now seeing our new home. It’s nice to get the client’s perspective when it comes to how much more welcoming our new home is. We’ve been here for 2 1/2 months now so we’re pretty used to it so we like seeing the reactions of people who are seeing our new home for the first time.
