We’re always looking to adopt the latest technologies, striving to improve the recording experience for the engineers and musicians who work here. We completed our last major technical installation a few years ago when we moved to a digital foldback system and we’re now excited to reveal a major upgrade to the Studios’ video infrastructure. After trying several options, we have finished installing a new HD video system across the Big Room and Wood Room. The system is based around Blackmagic Design products and allows our ProTools rigs, HD cameras, laptops and a Chromecast to be fed to any video monitor/projector in the facility at the touch of a button. It allows musicians in different rooms to see each other in HD with near-zero latency or to view ProTools screens. We’ve also added several portable monitors that can be placed around the Studios anywhere they are required.
As far as we know, we are one of only a handful of recording studios to have such a system. The upgrade was designed and installed by our own engineering team.
