Westlake Village, CA (March 5, 2008)–Warner Bros. Studios has added new gear from Guitar Center Professional (GC Pro) to its post production sound department. The equipment will be used for recording, editing and mixing on a wide range of film and television projects.
The new equipment includes 13 new Digidesign Pro Tools|HD surround systems as well as 13 new Apple Mac Pro computers, Dynaudio Air 6 Series 2-way Active Nearfield monitoring for each of the new Pro Tools rigs and a corresponding number of KK Audio workstation furniture pieces. Warner Bros. Studios Post Production Sound Department offers several re-recording stages, as well as numerous sound editorial/design suites and DVD audio mastering suites, all equipped with Pro Tools|HD systems.
The Oscar and Emmy Award-winning facility is apparently the first major motion picture re-recording facility to offer fully automated digital mixing desks that can support up to 1,000 channel paths. Specific innovations include soundproof editorial rooms on each stage that are fully networked to allow editors seamless support both within the mixing environment and to the Warner Bros. PPSnet, which connects each audio workstation with a private audio/video network, providing gigabit connectivity throughout the building for post production-related tasks.
“Warner Bros. Studios Post Production Sound Department is an amazing facility, and we were pleased that we could help them as they continue to expand their capacity,” says Derek Snyder, western regional manager for GC Pro, who managed the sale. “They trust GC Pro to deliver professional solutions in a timely manner, with very competitive pricing, expert knowledge and always-there support.”
