Case Study: Voice over recording in our Reading studios for Allergan Optive
Allergan Ophthalmology required a French voice over translation for their Optive product video. Optive is a dry-eye treatment, which lubricates the eyes and helps to prevent infection and vision impairment.
The script was translated by Allergan’s translation agency, and we cast a male French voice over artist who attended our recording studio in Reading. Our recording studio uses the latest pro-tools software and Neumann microphones to pick-up all the nuances of the performance. We imported the video to our pro-tools studios as a BITC (burnt-in-time-code) MOV file, which enabled us to record the French voice over in sync to the existing English narrator.
In our post-production suite we mixed the French voice over with the existing music and effects track, and laid back to the video. Final delivery was made as an MP4 file.
A recording studio with BBC quality acoustics
You will find our voice recordings sound clearer and crisper than from other studios. This is because both our studios have been acoustically designed to a very high specification.
First we have to keep external sounds out using the very latest sound proofing technology. Then the internal acoustics have to be fine tuned using specialised sound absorption materials and non parallel surfaces. This reduces acoustic reflections to help make the recordings sonically pure.
Both our state-of-the-art voice over recording studios are both equipped with the latest Pro-Tools technology to speed up the recording process by minimising the need for re-takes. This saves valuable time during the recording process and reduces the overall costs of the session. And we can record your session either 'wild' or lip-sync or phrase-sync to picture.

Foreign Language Voice Recordings
When you are commissioning foreign language versions, you must be confident that the narrator is a native speaker. That’s our guarantee, along with a considerable cost saving over the London agencies, and a studio rate that’s half what you’d pay in the capital. Trust Matinée to handle the whole project. From translation and casting, to recording and re-mixing, we’ll be talking your language.
Music and effects
Usually your video or animation will have an existing soundtrack which will include a combination of voice-over, music and effects. Our recording engineer will recreate these so that that the new version sounds as good or better than the original. And we have our own composed music library so you don't have to pay expensive MCPS licence rates.
