CSS, Todd-AO, Cinesite make moves

Todd-AO has completed a technical overhaul of ADR stage 5 at its Hollywood studios. One of the
largest facilities of its type in Hollywood, the ADR stage has been equipped with a new Pro Tools
workstation, a Soundmaster ION operating environment and a Christie HD playback system. The new
integration provides the stage with an all-digital infrastructure resulting in enhanced quality and
efficiency for voice recording. The Soundmaster ION will be used to synchronize the Pro Tools
system with a separate recording system, microphones, remote feeds, samplers, and a boom
recorder used for back-up.

”We have created a state-of-the-art recording facility that offers all functionality that producers and
talent expect from a world-class ADR room,” said Bill Johnston, senior vp of engineering at CSS
Studios, Todd-AO’s parent company. “Our aim is to make ADR as quick and seamless as possible.”
Johnston adds that the new HD video system has the ability to playback video in virtually any format,
eliminating transcoding delays. “It makes a world of difference,” observed Todd-AO ADR Mixer Ron
Bedrosian. ”The new technology provides increased flexibility so that we can better meet the evolving
needs of our clients.”
