The London studio contributed to more than 30 feature films in the last year, including Pirates of the Caribbean, Run Fat Boy Run and Love in the Time of Cholera. Its television work over the past year included Dr Who and the second series of The Tudors.

Upgrades to the theater include the addition of a 32-fader Digidesign ICON HD6 mixing desk, a Video Cube HD media server, a new HD projector and Millennia Microphone amplifiers. The investment will enable the studio to offer more extensive high-end mixing services to the television sector in addition to increasing its capacity for existing features clients. Theatre 4 can connected to any of the company’s 60 rooms, allowing clients to view their content in HD or SD on a large screen.

In New York, Goldcrest has updated its ADR capabilities with the addition of  ISDN connections and APT gear. The studio completed its first long-distance ADR session with the London studio last month – a project involving the popular UK series Hotel Babylon.
Also in New York, Goldcrest has replaced its existing Avid media Composers with two new Adrenaline systems, boosting their HD services. The Adrenalines feature the familiar Media Composer interface with much faster processing and support for more file formats. Both system are already in use on the documentary series Faster and Globesity.
