ISDN Voice Recording from any studio location
For years we have been digitally connecting our ISDN voice-over studios in Reading with other studios, broadcasters, actors and voice talent from around the world using ISDN. This means you can effectively record in any country or location you choose, so long as they have the same facilities ie. ISDN or Source Connect connectivity.
What is the difference between ISDN and Source Connect?
ISDN works over dedicated telephone lines. Both connected studios must have ISDN phone lines and the necessary hardware to make the connection. Source Connect delivers the same solution, in that a connection is made between two separate locations, but the data is sent and received over the Internet instead of using dedicated phone lines.
Stay in sync using our ISDN voice studios with recording to picture facilities
You can record your voice to picture if you require, which makes the whole process of post production much easier. Our editors have the knowledge and experience to set up the session in any way you require to make sure you get the best out of your chosen voice artist and the most out of your recording session.
Radio and TV broadcast links
The broadcast industry has been using ISDN connectivity for years, in order to connect to different locations all over the world. We can link to any radio or televison studio similarly equipped with ISDN, Source Connect or even Skype. This is convenient for conducting interviews for news stories, and to gain news, opinion and comment from anywhere you choose.
