Central Post LA Opens with Help from AID

Audio Intervisual Design Helps Configure Full-Service Facility for Central Post LA

Los Angeles, CA (January 24, 2018)—Los Angeles systems integrator Audio Intervisual Design was on board from the beginning to assist postproduction facility Central Post LA in opening its full-service complex in 2017 after a lengthy location search, design and construction odyssey.

“Jim Pace and AID worked with us right from the start,” says vice president of operations and re-recording mixer Reid Caulfield. “My business partner Chris found this building. It was perfect because it had previously been a video facility, and the technical infrastructure was mostly there. The rebuild was about reformatting rooms from small offices where they edited video, and a couple of dedicated video finishing rooms, into something that was architecturally sound for what we needed to do.”

Central Post LA’s installation consists of four control rooms, three recording spaces and machine room. Three of the control rooms are paired with voice recording rooms. One is a radio-style one-person booth. One of them can accommodate three or four people comfortably. The other can accommodate five to six people comfortably.

The facility specializes in localization and ADR, offers full CDSA-certified security and is one of the only facilities in Los Angeles to offer Dolby Atmos-at-Home mixing. Caulfield emphasizes, “It’s important to note that right now the industry is going through a cycle of content hacking and content theft. We’ve been thorough in making sure that Central Post is a fully secured facility, and we’ve been given the green light by the CDSA, the people who are now at the top of the chain in terms of content security.”

Managing partner Chris Davies adds, “We’ve had a fabulous experience with Jim and his team at AID. We’re really very happy with the work. And we were impressed at how it all came together in such a short period, with full security certification and being up and running and all that entails.”
