Indianapolis, IN (August 20, 2008)–Digidesign has acoustically renovated its video production room, which has become the permanent set for online video program DigiTV, with Auralex Acoustics treatments.
DigiTV was created to educate consumers about the company’s product features and the latest product news, user profiles, tips and tricks, and more.
The goals of the renovation were to deaden the overall space to provide for usable sound recording when shooting video. Digidesign also needed to create a usable mixing station. Auralex Acoustics provided a complete acoustical analysis to help the company achieve this.
The square space is approximately 30 x 30 feet. The ceilings are concrete and approximately 14 feet high, while the walls are constructed from multiple sheets of gypsum. The floor is cement covered by commercial carpet. Two 10-foot high curtains are part of the permanent DigiTV set. Also, there are two large columns that are utilized to separate the mix area from the rest of the room, if needed. These additional factors had to be taken into consideration when designing the acoustical layout of the space.
“Auralex values the importance of working directly with other manufacturers in the audio industry,” says Tim Martin, Director of Sales and Marketing at Auralex Acoustics. “Working with Digidesign, a leader in the industry, for the acoustical design of its new set for DigiTV is an exciting project to be involved in. We look forward to seeing Auralex’s products in the background of their video series, which is available on their site.”
Auralex provided the sound solution with a number of its acoustical products, including one box of SmartPak 2-inch Studiofoam wedge; one box of SmartPak 2-inch Pyramids; two boxes of LENRD bass traps; two Screen6 SpaceCoupler clouds; one SonoSuede HD System which includes four Corner Trap panels and eight SonoSuede Trapezoidal panels; three boxes of SonoFiber; five cans of Foamtak spray and three sets of MoPad monitor isolation pads.
“Auralex Acoustics’ pristine room layout form helped in ensuring that treatments were installed correctly, to keep with the intended acoustical balance,” says Gabe Echeverria, media production manager at Digidesign. “Once everything was installed, there was a considerable sound difference, which was obvious in the recording of our first video series in the newly treated space.”
