Highlights will include a
Dolby Atmos demo from Tattersall Sound & Picture.

TORONTO— The SIM Group will host leading manufacturers of cameras, lenses, sound,
grip and lighting, post production gear and workflow systems at the 11th
Annual SIM Technology Showcase slated for January 28th in Toronto.
The popular event provides members of the production and post-production
communities with a unique opportunity to examine innovative new products, witness
leading-edge technology demonstrations and find out from the experts how these
new tools and workflows can benefit their businesses.
Arri, Fujinon, Sony, BandPro and Sennheiser are among the
nearly two dozen manufacturers taking part. SIM Group divisions Tattersall
Sound & Picture, PS Production Services, Bling Digital, SIM Digital and Pixel
Underground will also host technology demonstrations.

Unlike massive trade shows, the SIM Technology Showcase
offers a chance to evaluate the latest tools and techniques up close, in a
relaxed, intimate environment. “Production and post professionals can talk
directly to manufacturers’ representatives about new products,” says SIM Group
CEO Rob Sim. “It’s an opportunity to gather information and to share ideas.
It’s also a lot of fun…that’s why people come back year after year.”
Highlights of this year’s event will include a demonstration
of Dolby Atmos immersive audio technology by Tattersall Sound & Picture. Used
on a number of recent blockbuster features, Atmos produces sound that seems to
flow around the audience for heightened realism. With broadcast standards for
Atmos about to be released, Tattersall Re-Recording Mixer Lou Solakofski and Tattersall General
Manager, Peter Gibson, will demonstrate how television series can take
advantage of the new technology.
“It’s not just about
loud sounds,” Solakofski explains. “It’s more about the sonic details that add
to the viewer’s involvement. Atmos allows you the feeling of being someplace
other than your living room.”
