The essence of Recording Arts and Science's approach is hands-on immersion. Students record and work with an immense amount of audio content from the conservatory, from solo instrument recitals to full-on orchestral ensembles, in addition to their regular course work in which they are editing, producing, and mastering sound. All of their work is done in one of four primary control rooms, and all of those control rooms are connected to an EVO shared storage media server.
NRG's extensive and diverse group of clientele requires a high degree of technological organization, stability, security and efficiency. Bringing EVO on board allowed NRG to re-imagine their entire workflow from tracking to backup, all tied together seamlessly under one system.
Universal Studios Sound has 18 mix rooms and stages, and is located on one of the largest studio lots in the world. As a full service post production sound facility, Universal Studios Sound handles features, television, and trailers along with animation and gaming. It offers sound editorial & design, mixing, Foley, ADR and transfer plus digital mastering, preservation, restoration, and archival services. In addition to work done for Universal Pictures, Universal Studios Sound’s services are in high demand by third party productions as well. Having multiple stages and edit suites, Universal Studios Sound required a more efficient, secure, enterprise-wide solution for its storage needs in its mix stages. Each fully digital mix stage has multiple DigiDesign Pro Tools workstations for playback and recording, as well as additional systems for video playback. Doc Goldstein, Vice President of Post Production Engineering at Universal Studios Sound said, “Our clients are usually in a time-critical situation and so we need our workflow to be as efficient as possible to meet their requirements. In addition we take security very seriously; we want to make sure their content is as secure as we can make it. So we knew we needed to look to the future and a more robust storage solution.”
