LOS ANGELES – Building on the success of its remote dubbing service, Zoo Digital (www.zoodigital.com) recently launched a service for remote ADR. With remote ADR solutions, latency is typically a problem. Taking this into consideration, Zoo is using the same foundation as its proven voice-capture platform, enabling the new service to overcome the challenge.
Zoo’s ADR platform facilitates recording sessions from either studio or remote locations by creating a virtual ADR stage. Integrated video conferencing and collaboration tools allow actors, directors, dialect coaches and others to work together in realtime as though they were in the same room. Remote ADR from Zoo enables loop groups to record together collaboratively in the same session. Auto-sync tools provide snap-to-sync capabilities to ensure all captured audio is frame accurate.
All pre-release content remains secure in the ADR platform, which benefits from multifactor authentication, watermarking, 256-bit encryption and secure video streaming. As no third-party collaboration tools are required, the solution provides a seamless and secure ADR service. Actors are able to re-record lines easily from any suitable environment.
“During 2020, we were pleased to be able to support a number of our customers to keep their productions moving with remote ADR services,” says Gordon Doran, president of Zoo Digital. “This was while also ensuring the health and safety of their actors and directors during a challenging period for everyone. Now, thanks to the rapid work of our in-house research and development team, we have been able to adapt our voice capture technology in order to launch a dedicated remote ADR service, right when the industry needs it most.”
Zoo offers both full-service ADR to manage and deliver the end-to-end service, as well as rental of its ‘virtual ADR stages’ by the hour. The studio is a member of the Trusted Partner Network and has successfully passed stringent security audits by major Hollywood studios and streaming services.
