Euphonix, a leader in large-format digital audio consoles, media controllers, and peripherals based in Mountain View, Calif., played host to back-to-back audio industry events celebrating the achievements of high-end film studios in both Los Angeles and London.

On June 25 in Los Angeles, Euphonix and Todd-AO threw a party at the legendary Todd-AO Hollywood film studios celebrating the grand reopening of the facility’s two newly renovated Stage 1 and 2 dubbing theaters, each featuring a dual-operator Euphonix System 5 digital audio mixing console. This brings the total of Euphonix film mixing consoles at Todd AO to eight.

More than 100 guests enjoyed cocktails, dinner and tours of the facility. Later in the evening, guests gathered in Stage 1 to listen to a presentation given by multiple Academy Award winning sound mixer Mike Minkler, who screened examples of his work including clips from Black Hawk Down, Dreamgirls and a sneak preview of his latest dubbing project, Quentin Tarantino’s new film Inglorious Bastards. Minkler discussed how he approaches mixing on the Euphonix System 5 consoles and answered audience questions.

"The Todd-AO celebration was a tremendous success,” says Euphonix CEO Martin Kloiber, “We were honored to have guests from all the high-end studios in Hollywood, who took time from their very busy schedules to spend an evening with us. And we are especially grateful to Mike Minkler for sharing some of his insights into film mixing.”

One week later, Euphonix Europe hosted a similar event at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, England. Dubbed as an evening to “Escape the City,” guests were treated to delicious food and drink and given the opportunity to meet and talk with Oscar winning sound mixers Ian Tapp and Richard Pryke, who won the 2008 Sound Mixing Academy Award for their work on Slumdog Millionaire.

A longtime Euphonix client, the Pinewood Studios Group has been steadily upgrading its facilities since 2003 when it added the first of two Euphonix System 5 consoles at Shepperton. In 2008 the renovations were completed with the installation of two new Euphonix System 5 dual operator film-mixing consoles at its Pinewood location.

The Euphonix-equipped Pressburger Theatre at Pinewood was one of 15 studios chosen by Mix magazine for its Class of 2009; click here to read the "Class of 2009" cover story from Mix's June issue.

“We wanted to show our appreciation for the continued support of the Pinewood Studios Group,“ says Mark Hosking, director of sales for Euphonix Europe, “and this event was a terrific opportunity to bring together the UK film community for a relaxing evening in great environment and share a glass or two.”
