AMS Neve DFC SuperStem™ mixing puts you in complete control of Dolby Atmos and Barco Auro 3D film sound formats

Film sound formats are evolving beyond 7.1 and DFC development is at the forefront of emerging formats, as always. Whereas many workstations and consoles are limited to 7.1, the AMS Neve DFC has been capable of mixing completely in 9.1 for over two years. Exciting new software now allows powerful native mixing control for both Barco Auro 3D and Dolby Atmos. 9.1, 11.1 and 13.1 mixes can be created within the AMS Neve DFC effortlessly, with the DFC SuperStem™ system.

Courtesy of the world’s most powerful and flexible audio mixing engine (USP), a project of any size and the greatest complexity can be handled with ease on the AMS Neve DFC with its huge path handling power.  All the additional paths needed for these new 3D and surround formats are effortlessly catered for with the USP Engine.

The AMS Neve DFC can mix a Dolby Atmos bed in 9.1 or extended 11.1 for larger screen sizes.
BARCO Auro 3D 11.1 and 13.1 panning and stem formats supported.

Object properties can dynamically be assigned to a channel seamlessly using Object stem assignment. No pre-designation required for a particular channel to become an Object path. This also allows for easy Object re-use.

Both the stem elements of the Bed mix and Objects (grouped in stems) can be included or isolated from the monitor mix using the DFC Surround Monitor Panel.

Integration with the Dolby RMU allows object panning metadata to be transmitted over Ethernet and the RMU speaker meters are returned to the DFCs meter bridge for accurate monitoring of all speakers being heard in the room.

The Academy® Award-winning AMS Neve DFC, with SuperStem™ technology is the ultimate film sound production system.  Being completely editor agnostic, the world’s top mixing talent can escape from the box and achieve their perfect sound tracks on the ultimate Digital Film Console – the AMS Neve DFC.  No question.
