Burbank, CA (August 11, 2008)–Sound restoration and re-mastering facility Chace Productions has been using Avastor HDX drives when digitizing audio archive material.
“We have been using Avastor drives since their debut and have come to rely on their performance, build and quality assurance,” says David Hunter, manager of information and data technologies at Chace Productions. “We can’t stop buying more of these drives for in-house work and client deliverables. The robust locking case is very convenient, both for carrying through the facility, handing off to a courier or regular shipment.”
Recently Chace Productions prepared Steven Spielberg’s 1977 Academy Award-winning Close Encounters of the Third Kind for release on Blu-ray Disc, making it the first of Spielberg’s films to be available on the hi-res disc format. In addition, it’s also the first BD to make use of Clarity Audio Restoration by Plangent Processes. Clarity is a unique process that uncovers hidden detail in original soundtrack material.
Chace’s clients include Sony Pictures Entertainment, Warner Bros., Universal Studios, Twentieth Century Fox, Paramount Pictures, MGM/UA, NBC, and the National Archives and Records Administration, whose projects demand the most professional and innovative technology available.
