UK-based reference monitor manufacturer PMC will be highlighting the importance of its products in the burgeoning immersive sound market by making a PMC-equipped Dolby Atmos® demo suite the centerpiece of its booth (16112) at NAMM 2020.

Content will be played back using Dolby Atmos renderer software, Pro Tools and Focusrite RedNet I/O.

The accuracy, power and transparency of PMC products has long made them the monitors of choice for many major Hollywood composers, producers and mixers such as Oscar-nominated music scoring mixer Dennis Sands, Game of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi, composer Thomas Newman and Grammy and Emmy Award winning producer Tommy Vicari.
