— One of the world’s leading film and video post production studios purchases
Digidesign Pro Tools HD3 surround-capable workstations, along with
surround monitoring, Apple computers and more —

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CA, February 28, 2008 – The OSCAR® and EMMY®-Award-winning Warner Bros. Studios Post Production Sound Department has expanded its recording, editing and mixing capacity with the addition of a number of units purchased through Guitar Center Professional (GC Pro), the outside sales division of Guitar Center that focuses on the needs of professional users. The new gear includes 13 new Digidesign Pro Tools HD surround systems, as well as 13 new Apple Mac Pro computers, Dynaudio Air 6 Series 2-way Active Nearfield monitoring for each of the new Pro Tools rigs and a corresponding number of KK Audio workstation furniture pieces. The equipment will be used by Warner Bros. Studios Post Production Sound Department on a wide range of film and television projects.

One of the world’s most technologically advanced post production facilities, Warner Bros. Studios Post Production Sound Department offers several re-recording stages, as well as numerous sound editorial/design suites and DVD audio mastering suites, all equipped with Pro Tools HD systems. Now it is the first major motion picture re-recording facility to offer fully automated digital mixing desks that can support up to 1,000 channel paths. Specific innovations include soundproof editorial rooms on each stage that are fully networked to allow editors seamless support both within the mixing environment and to the Warner Bros. PPSnet, which connects each audio workstation with a private audio/video network, providing gigabit connectivity throughout the building for post production-related tasks. Further information on Warner Bros. Post Production Services can be found at www.wbpostproduction.com.

“Warner Bros. Studios Post Production Sound Department is an amazing facility, and we were pleased that we could help them as they continue to expand their capacity,” says Derek Snyder, Western Regional Manager for GC Pro, who managed the sale. “They trust GC Pro to deliver professional solutions in a timely manner, with very competitive pricing, expert knowledge and always-there support.”
