Vidiots Expands With Pro Tools HD 5.1 SuiteAdds to roster of seven Avid Media Composer Adrenaline HD rooms (July 12, 2006)
Vidiots, Inc., which combines full-service postproduction for film and TV with a boutique environment, has opened a Digidesign Pro Tools HD suite. The expansion adds a 5.1 surround mix suite to Vidiots roster of seven Avid Media Composer Adrenaline HD rooms and on-premises graphic design and 3D animation via GMD THREE.
?We planned to open a 5.1 surround suite when we moved to this space in March 2005, says Michael Amoia who co-owns Vidiots with his brother Anthony. ?Its a logical extension of our under-one-roof services. Now clients who take advantage of our Avid editorial, graphic design and animation capabilities can fill their audio post needs in our Pro Tools HD room.
The new suite is equipped with a Pro Tools HD 3 system with Control 24 surface and Genelec 5.1 speakers. Pro Tools links to the companys Avid Unity media storage enabling the audio suite to immediately call up cuts from the Avid rooms. A 45-inch Sharp LCD flatscreen HD monitor offers optimum picture quality.
A voiceover/ISO booth, which accommodates three, is outfitted with a Neumann TLM103 mic. The studio also features an ISND line for realtime feeds.
Chris Harmony of Technical Structures designed and built the Pro Tools HD suite; Doug Oberkircher, formerly with The Hit Factory, helped wire and balance out the new room.
