Editworks specifies Avid Pro Tools|HD Native

UK entertainment and factual programming post facility Editworks – whose many credits include Harry Hill’s TV Burp and The Graham Norton Show – has boosted its audio capabilities with the purchase of an Avid Pro Tools|HD Native system.

A long-standing Avid customer, Editworks has 13 Avid editing suites in its Charlotte Street London facility and nine Avid systems at its Glasgow base, all hooked up through a central Avid ISIS storage solution.

Now, the company has added a Pro Tools|HD Native suite to help cater to increased demand for quality audio production for its entertainment and factual TV clients.

Adrian Smith, head of audio at Editworks, said: “As part of the decision-making process in selecting a new suite it was imperative that whichever system we chose was an industry standard one – in terms of user interface, openness and customer acceptance. Avid Pro Tools|HD Native fits the bill perfectly. Not only is it easy to install and straightforward to use but it also opens up a whole range of creative possibilities through the new Artist Series controllers.”

The first project Editworks used the new suite on was a forthcoming Five series about five prospective nuclear submarine commanders entitled Perisher: Do or Die.

“This is a high-octane series with intense audio special effects and fast-paced dialogue. It needed the full audio treatment – from sound effects to plug-ins to voice-over and clean-up. Pro Tools handled it all brilliantly,” said Smith.
