A data dive into Patreon As long-time readers will know, I’m keen to cover the speed and scope of changes within the film business.

University of Surrey opens doors to 22.2 listening room Institute of Sound Recording is offering access to its experimental workspace equipped with a range of reproduction systems from stereo to multi-channel. The Institute of Sound Recording (IoSR) at the University of Surrey is now offering access to a new 22.2 critical listening room that utilises Genelec 8330A SAM studio monitors and 7350A SAM subwoofers.

The ITU-R BS.1116 listening room, designed and built by Munro Acoustics, is used by students and researchers to undertake experimental work involving audio measurement and subjective listening tests.

An announcement posted on the door of the Windsor Centre building in Islington – just around the corner from the PSNEurope office – explains that the building’s lease is due to expire in March 2016, and while the directors had been working “flat out to attract investment to facilitate” funding a new lease, all efforts have “proved unsuccessful”.
