IBC 2012: SSL launches ScreenSound ADR

Designed to optimise and standardise Automatic Dialogue Replacement for film, foley recording and local language replacement for film and television, ScreenSound ADR is the world’s first end-to-end solution aimed at delivering faster and more efficient ADR workflow.

ScreenSound ADR combines a suite of integrated software applications, providing dialogue spotting and session preparation, session control and management and streamlined audio recording, with an industrial-strength hardware platform, including host computer, I/O and Nucleus hardware control surface.

Built to offer optimum efficiency, the session preparation stage of the process is handled by SpotShot, a comprehensive take logging, dialogue spotting and session preparation tool. Imported scripts are automatically turned into take lists, while a dedicated interface is designed to streamline the dialogue spotting process with an integrated HD capable video player with full script and annotation text overlay.

At the core of ScreenSound ADR is SpotFire, which presents a dedicated session management and automated ADR interface that offers users full control of studio session workflow. SpotFire also offers a unique interface that combines a ‘rehearse – record – review’ based transport control panel with a customisable Take List.

SpotFire utilises SSL’s Soundscape DAW as its underlying platform for recording, editing and mixing with all track arming, transport and recording functions controlled by SpotFire’s dedicated ADR interface.

Meanwhile, SpotFire also feeds and controls VisionCue, Screensound ADR’s artist cue system, a fully integrated multi-screen HD video player with customisable scrolling script, annotation, graphic timeline cue and count in overlay. VisionCue can natively play a huge range of video formats all the way up to Pro Res and Avid dnxhd without the need for transcoding and the system supports BlackMagic Design video interfaces.
