New York City-based Sterling Sound has hired Scott McConville as chief technical engineer; McConville was recently manager of audio visual operations at Seattle-based Vulcan Inc., a project-management and R&D company for Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen.
McConville began his career in New York as technical director for Masterdisk in 1988. In 1992, he left Masterdisk with Bob Ludwig to create Gateway Mastering Studios in Portland, Maine. As director of new technology development, McConville was instrumental in creating Gateway's DVD authoring, surround and mastering businesses.
"Sterling has a reputation for technical excellence and I'm proud to be part of the technical team," said McConville. “I look forward to advancing Sterling's eMastering initiative and enabling our global client base to work with us efficiently and productively. The coming year will be an exciting and busy year for us. We're currently completing our eighth studio, an analog and digital surround mastering room for Leon Zervos. Also this year, we'll be integrating Metropolis DVD's video production facility with Sterling's mastering operation, enabling us to offer our clients a full range of multimedia services."
