Visioneering Design, a turnkey audio/video/film design and integration firm, has completed design and integration services for the newly located and greatly expanded facilities of 2G Digital Post, a Los Angeles-based HD online facility specializing in TV and airline versions of major motion pictures. Visioneering completed the majority of the project in less than four weeks, in order to meet the deadline for the grand opening.
Visioneering Design provided systems integration for high-definition edit suites in 2G Digital's new facility, including six Avid DS Nitris HD/SD editing bays and two QC bays. A Digidesign Pro Tools|HD audio mixing suite and sound recording booth will be online soon. The facility is also equipped with multiple Sony SRW 5000 HD and Panasonic AJ-HD3700 D5 video recorders. All bays have 5.1 monitoring systems and are 96K capable with Yamaha O1V96 mixers.
"When we were contracted by 2G, we knew it would call for a 24/7 type of schedule to make the grand opening," says Visioneering head Ron Lagerlof. "We did a majority of the cable fabrication, pre-wiring, and signal flow design in our shop to make the installation go as fast as humanly possible."
2G owner Chuck Filliettaz adds, "We built this facility from the ground up to deliver a level of quality and value that goes far beyond what the industry is used to. Ron and his crew did an amazing job in a very short time to help us get here, allowing us to make an extremely smooth transition to our new location and minimize our downtime."
