Indianapolis, IN (April 27, 2011)–Audio Resource Honolulu used Auralex Acoustics products to create an on-set ADR studio for CBS hit series Hawaii Five-O.
As the dedicated ADR facility for the show, Audio Resource Honolulu (ARH) is responsible for all the re-recording of the original dialogue for the purpose of obtaining a cleaner, more intelligible dialogue track. This can be due to ambient noise or to change the original lines recorded in order to clarify context, or to improve the actor’s diction and timing.
ARH was asked to create a room on-set to capture the needed ADR when the actors were on break from shooting. A space was identified, but needed acoustical treatment in order to obtain the proper sound quality. Auralex’s 2-inch Studiofoam Wedges were chosen and installed on more than 80 percent of the wall surfaces. Now the ADR can be captured either on-set or back at the studio, depending on the location of the actors.
“Auralex enabled me to treat the raw space at the Hawaii Five-O set properly so it would be able to work for our ADR team,” says Audio Resource Honolulu’s Tony Hugar of ARH, which was the ADR facility for the six seasons of ABC’s drama Lost. “Since this was for internal purposes only, a pretty room wasn’t the priority for the Hawaii Five-O producers. Instead, they were more concerned about getting a true studio feel–which we were able to accomplish with the Auralex Studiofoam treatments. Acoustically, the Wedges have given me results that blend in well with our work done back in the studio, and all within budget.”
