Located in the basement of the Judith-Jasmin Pavilion, the former broadcasting room used for public performances, conferences and symposiums, has been divided into six rooms to accommodate :
- A new film studio, a multi-purpose room measuring 13 x 13 meters and two stories high, equipped with audiovisual connections for microphones and cameras and a ceiling grid for lighting;
- A 120-seat projection room with a control room, a place that recalls the vocation of the old room;
- A recording studio with a sound booth and a sound effects room;
- A workshop to store the sets;
- A support room for pre-production;
- A pre-production support room;
- And finally, an Audiovisual Services loan counter to store equipment, interactive media and film music.
The projection room and recording studio will soon be equipped with Dolby Atmos 3D sound technology, a technology that adds a vertical dimension to the soundtrack, maximizing its spatialization and immersive effect.
In addition to the fact that this project was built inside a building that remained in operation during the construction period, soundproofing the premises —an essential part of film production— was one of the major challenges of the project. To obtain the best possible soundproofing, each room was decoupled from the existing structure by building "rooms within rooms". The mechanical rooms were renovated and a new silent ventilation system was installed.
