Important Additions Also Feature JBL M2 Monitors

TORONTO, Sept. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Deluxe Toronto Ltd.—a division of Deluxe Entertainment Services Group Inc., global supplier of a broad range of services and technologies to the entertainment industry—today announced a major upgrade of its mixing rooms.

Deluxe's Mix 1 theater in its state-of-the-art post-production facility in Toronto is Canada's largest film mixing stage and features Dolby Atmos(R) technology.

Improvements include the introduction of Dolby Atmos® technology to Mix 1—Canada's largest film mixing stage. Among other upgrades to its mixing rooms, Deluxe has added JBL M2 Master Reference monitors.

"The introduction of Dolby Atmos, complemented with speaker and amp upgrades from Harman's® JBL Professional and Crown Audio brands, makes our new mix theaters the most technically complete in Canada for film and TV sound re-recording," said Nick Iannelli, vice president of post-production operations at Deluxe Toronto.

The new additions "allow us to state unequivocally that you will hear a difference in fidelity and sound clarity when mixing at Deluxe," Iannelli added.

"Dolby recognizes the importance and value of having a strong presence in Canada's vital post-production community," said Curt Behlmer, senior vice president of content solutions and industry relations at Dolby Laboratories.  "We couldn't be more pleased and know that this respected Dolby Atmos mixing stage—our first in Canada—will help filmmakers realize their creative visions going forward."

Said Peter Chaikin, director of recording and broadcast at JBL Professional: "Incorporating new patented JBL technologies, the innovative JBL M2 monitor was designed to deliver a level of sound clarity unmatched in the post-production industry. Deluxe's customers are already realizing the benefits of these new speakers, and we are delighted Deluxe Toronto has become a flagship location for the M2 in Canada."

Deluxe is a key supplier to the Canadian post-production and media services industry.

About Dolby Atmos
Dolby Atmos makes it easy for filmmakers to place or move specific sounds anywhere in the movie theatre, including overhead. As a result of this multidimensional sound, audiences feel as if they are inside the film, not merely watching it.

Introduced in April 2012, Dolby Atmos has been embraced by all the major Hollywood studios, seven Academy Award® winning directors, and 16 Academy Award winning sound mixers, among others. Dolby Atmos has received technical achievement awards from both the Hollywood Post Alliance and the Cinema Audio Society. To learn more about Dolby Atmos, visit dolby.com/Atmos.
