We can record voice overs for use in television, radio, video productions, podcasts and much more. Our voice over booths are acoustically treated and soundproofed to give a very clean and neutral sound. The Neumann U-87Ai ensures a high quality, detailed & industry-standard vocal sound. With our Protools systems we have the ability to record / re-voice "to picture" if provided with a video file.

We edit and mix to industry standard formats such as :-

  • wav
  • aiff

  • CD and more...

Audio Description

We currently provide the audio-description services for S4C (Welsh Language Television).  


We provide the recording (to-picture), editing, generation of "Fade-Bytes" and final delivery of the audio described material.

 

Audio Description is a narration track, transmitted on many digital television platforms, that is used by visually impaired and blind people. 


This narration describes what is happening on screen and is usually inserted in breaks between programme dialogue.
