SMPTE Hollywood will delve into the challenges of remastering classic films for modern theatres equipped with immersive sound systems at its meeting on May 25 at 6:00 pm at the Linwood Dunn Theater in Hollywood.
Sony Pictures’ Brian Vessa and Warner Bros. Discovery’s Doug Mountain will discuss the artistic and technical hurdles involved in creating enhanced, immersive soundtracks for older studio films.
The Program is being produced by Steven B. Cohen and Linda Rosner.
Cohen will moderate the discussion.
Preparing classic films for screening in modern theatres, where audiences expect immersive sound experiences, can be complex and challenging. Research may be required to locate the best source elements, which often need extensive restoration.
Vessa and Mountain will explore these issues in the context of recent restoration work at Sony Pictures and Warner Bros. They will also present samples of that work, played through the Linwood Dunn Theater’s 7.1 sound system.
