Post Sound Update

Action Audio and Visual is not only a leading rental service for audio and video equipment, but also a one-stop shop for your project with a full service production studio. We recently set up our new Avid C24 and its 24-channel control surface guarantees maximized control of Pro Tools and Pro Tools HD mixing, recording, and editing.

James Barth , our post specialist, has recently begun working on his second season of a PBS series titled “Inspiration with Lance Heft”.

Once we ran out of our biggest screens, 65″ plasmas, our customers started working their way down until we had no tv screens left. It was amazing. We definitely scored points all over Hollywood this weekend. Continue reading
