San Francisco, CA (December 30, 2005)– After serving as a leader in the surround sound market for the past ten years, One Union Recording has moved into the world high definition audio by mixing a handful of commercial spots that have aired on HD channels across the U.S.
“Over the past couple of years we have made all of the capital investments and built up the structural integrity of each of our studios in order to easily transition to this new market,” reported One Union Recording president John McGleenan. “We have the ability to answer the demands of any HD requirements with the flexibility of our machine room and the talent of our engineers.”
One of the recent HD spots that came through One Union, a 15-second Comcast spot that featured the Dave Matthews Band titled “Blurry Vision” aired on PBS HD. One Union’s senior engineer Joaby Deal handled the mix. “The spot is designed to show the contrast between normal television versus HD television,” Deal explained. “It was a fun technical session because I got to use Dolby E encoders (DP-571) and decoders (DP-572) as well as a Sony HD cam for the lay back.”
McGleenan added, “The horsepower of One Union is now being put to the test and we are very happy to see that it’s all performing better than expected.”
