DreamWorks AnimationIn 2012, DreamWorks Animation announced a 15-picture commitment to Auro 11.1 releases, starting with Rise of the Guardians.

Read the press release

“Before teaming up with Barco, we considered a number of different sound formats, but it became very clear to us that Barco's Auro 11.1 3D audio format is actually the best.”

Jeffrey Katzenberg, CEO of DreamWorks Animation

“The Barco financial proposition for the exhibitors is far more attractive, far more doable and far more practical. The ability that this will be able to roll out worldwide and be something that is affordable is critical, and Auro 11.1 is the highest quality with the best affordability.”

Jeffrey Katzenberg, CEO of DreamWorks Animation

“We believe that Barco’s 3D sound technology will serve to immerse audiences around the world even more deeply into the adventure-filled world created by our filmmakers.”

Jeffrey Katzenberg, CEO of DreamWorks Animation

Lucasfilm

The first movie ever mixed in Barco's 3D sound was Lucasfilm's Red Tails.Lucasfilm

“When we first heard demonstrations of what the Auro 11.1 audio format is capable of, it gave us great ideas for new possibilities in storytelling.”

Rick McCallum, Producer of Red Tails

“Auro 11.1 will be the new standard.”

Matthew Wood, supervising sound editor for Red Tails

“The plugin is really easy to implement.”

David Acord, sound re-recording mixer for Red Tails

Sound mixers

Here are some reactions from sound mixers on mixing in the Auro 11.1 format:

“On Croods we found Auro 11.1 easy to deal with in terms of workflow. Panning sounds from the bottom channels to the top channels was very straightforward and simple. For scenes in which we want to envelop the audience in either music or sound effects we found Auro 11.1 to be very useful. It does add a dimension to the sound without being gimmicky, without calling attention to itself.”

Randy Thom, Supervising sound editor for The Croods, Skywalker sound

“Auro 11.1 fits in with budgetary and technical ways of doing things and is both creative and rock solid reliable. It could also be adapted easily to give you a large palette for mixing sound.”

Marti Humphrey, President and Re-Recording Mixer, The Dub Stage
