Topic: Dolby Atmos RMW build - Windows
We will be renovating one of our editing suite rooms and building it out to be a Dolby Atmos system. We are Windows-based and using DaVinci Resolve Fairlight for our audio mixing.
In the planning stages - Dolby documentation has two approaches to the Dolby Atmos RMW running on a separate computer:
1) RME HDSPe MADI FX on the RMW
2) RME MADIface XT on the RMW
Do people have experience with either setup and recommend which RME components we'd need to complete the build? The Dolby Atmos RMW would be running on a separate Windows workstation. I am just trying to clarify in my mind how the components would fit together in the final build. Likely an M-16 DA to deliver the analog audio to our Genelec monitors - would that be on the DAW or the RMW?
