Joe Caterini, president of Photomag Sound & Image (www.pmag.com), announced the completion of an extensive round of facility updates, all of which stemmed from the company’s 2003 purchase by PostWorks, New York.
Photomag has added two video editing suites (each with complete Avid Symphony systems), in addition to extensive remodeling and re-engineering, allowing for seamless integration of audio, video finishing and graphics capabilities. Each of the company’s six sound mixing studios has its own voice-over room and Pro Tools systems.
In other company news, PostWorks, New York, has completed two surround Dolby-approved mix rooms: Mix 1 is a broadcast and DVD mix suite, and Mix 2 is a film print mastering mix stage. “To give our mixers and our clients the greatest options in the realm of 5.1 mixing, our chief audio engineer, Brian Dorfman, gathered the latest input on acoustic design and equipment specs from Dolby Labs’ engineers and then designed our two new rooms from the ground up,” explained Caterini.
