The suite has a noise floor generally around 21db (that's very, very quiet) so voiceover/ADR recording can be completed here.
With a large variety of mics and preamps, matching audio to production/location audio is fairly easy (most of the time).
HD Camera, fluid head tripod, lights - for those emergecy insert shots.
Whether completely in-house, files sent to you from here or a mix of both, we've been doing it for years.
It doesn't matter if you're based in Los Angeles or anywhere in the country or world, we work locally and globally.
Locally, for the SPIKE TV series, Surviving Disaster, rough-cuts were FTP'd here from the studio in Burbank. 3D Animation was produced here and sent back to the studio. Once approved, final, color-corrected HD outputs were sent the same way.
Globally, for the BLURAY release of Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?, we worked with the Producer located in New York as well as the Distributor located in London. We shot and edited (HD, of course) one of the extras for the disc. Offlines were sent via our FTP server to the producer for approval, then final color corrected online HD masters were sent via FTP to the DVD post house in London. Seamless, instantaneous and inexpensive... the way it should and must be.
