Los Angeles, CA (August 28, 2008)–AEG Ehrlich Ventures, LLC will utilize a mobile sound stage trailer manufactured by Voice Over There, Inc. to record voiceover packages for the live broadcast of the 60th Primetime Emmy Awards.
The VOT trailer, designed by veteran television director/technical director, Amir Soleimani, is a completely self-contained, mobile recording studio housed in a custom-made cargo trailer. Air-conditioned and fully soundproofed up to -50dB, the VOT trailer will be parked outside the Nokia Theater in downtown Los Angeles for the Emmy Award broadcast.
Over the three days of rehearsals prior to the broadcast, celebrity presenters will use the mobile soundstage to record voiceovers that will be combined with video packages to be rolled in during Sunday evening’s live broadcast. The VOT trailer will be hard-wired to the production suite in the Nokia Theater and the recoded voiceovers will be fed to the profiles, a series of stacked hard drives, where on-site editors will have access to all the material.
“The VOT trailer will give us studio quality sound on location,” said Ron Basile, producer of the broadcast for AEG Ehrlich Ventures, LLC. “Having the mobile soundstage next to the theater is very convenient for scheduling our celebrities during rehearsals and assures that we’ll get network-quality sound for the video packages.”
The VOT trailer is outfitted with digital sound recording technology, including Pro Tools, Telos Xstream, Verizon wireless Internet and top-of-the-line microphones. It is currently being used on location by the television series The Starter Wife, starring Deborah Messing. Parked alongside the shooting stage at Culver Studios, actors from the series can step into the mobile studio during breaks in shooting to do additional dialog recording (ADR).
“The difficulty of scheduling dialog pickups inspired the creation of Voice Over There,” explains Soleimani. “I wanted to find a convenient, cost-conscious way of accommodating talent in and around Southern California, whether they are at home, on set, or on location.
