Amsterdam, Netherlands (September 17, 2012)-Solid State Logic has launched ScreenSound ADR. Designed to optimize and standardize automatic dialogue replacement for film, Foley recording and local language replacement for film and television, ScreenSound ADR is an end-to-end solution designed to deliver faster and more efficient ADR workflow, according to SSL.
ScreenSound ADR is a turnkey system that combines a suite of integrated software applications providing dialogue spotting and session preparation, session control and management and streamlined audio recording, with a hardware platform including host computer, I/O and Nucleus hardware control surface. At each stage of the ADR process, ScreenSound ADR provides dedicated solutions to streamline preparation, management and production.
The session preparation stage of the process is handled by SpotShot, a comprehensive take logging, dialogue spotting and session preparation tool. Imported scripts are automatically turned into take lists, and a dedicated interface streamlines the dialogue spotting process with an integrated HD capable video player with full script and annotation text overlay. Take lists can be filtered to show appearances by individual cast members or groups and to calculate word/line count to help plan studio and talent time. SpotShot is a standalone application enabling dialogue spotting to be done away from the ADR studio.
At the heart of ScreenSound ADR is SpotFire, which presents a dedicated session management and automated ADR interface that provides control of studio session workflow. SpotFire relies on SSL's Soundscape DAW as the underlying platform for recording, editing and mixing with all track arming, transport and recording functions controlled entirely by SpotFire's dedicated ADR interface. The system imports native .ptf format sessions from Pro Tools and can export finished sessions in native .ptf Pro Tools format.
SpotFire also feeds and controls the VisionCue artist cue system. VisionCue is a fully integrated multi-screen HD video player with a customizable scrolling script, annotation, graphic timeline cue and count-in overlay.
