Soundelux (an Ascent Media Company) recently contracted Visioneering Design to integrate five portable Pro Tools editorial systems and a loading station for digitizing picture and loading audio elements in its new Soundelux London editorial facilities.

"It was a very fast turnaround for this project," commented Bill Johnston, Ascent senior VP engineering. "We had to be ready for shows in London rather quickly, so we did a joint venture with Ron Lagerlof of Visioneering. Ron and his crew did the prewiring and integration and our team completed the assembly. That was the only way it could have been finished in the timeframe we had.

"We started putting the systems together here early in the month, shipped them over and finished our new Soundelux facilities in London by the end of the month," Johnston continued. "The first show we're working on is Wolfgang Peterson's Troy. The new company is staffed completely by British citizens because it is not about our company sending over editors from Los Angeles. It's about creating a British company."

Doug Mountain, Todd-AO Studios engineer, explained, "We shipped over six total editorial systems and one digital assist system, all Pro Tools. All the systems are completely portable, so they can roll from room to room or to a stage. Four of the systems are based on Control 24 as a controller and as a monitoring environment. We are using JBL LSR 28s for monitoring systems and a JBL LSR-12 subwoofer. Each of the systems has a Mackie 1604 as a monitoring device for full 5.1 in the editorial rooms."

The portable rackmounted systems each contain Emagic Unitor 8, BGW-100 stereo power amp for monitoring, USD Sync, two 8824 I/O for Pro Tools, a Furman power conditioner, patchbays, four 120-gigabyte Storcase hard drives in a FireWire loop, Mackie 1604 for monitoring, Storcase wide and narrow removable drives, a Macintosh G4 and SBS Technologies expansion chassis.
