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.

We definitely scored points all over Hollywood this weekend. Continue reading

On November 22, 2011, the Boys and Girls Club in Burbank had a special guest speaker, Oscar De La Hoya. We set up the audio for the legendary boxer  and he delivered an inspirational speech to the children.  The appearance was sponsored by AT&T, which involved them donating $5,000 to the Boys and Girls club. It was an honor to meet and speak with Oscar afterward.

On December 19th, 2011 we were commissioned to check that a building was sound proofed enough to sustain the impact of the new subway the city built.   We blasted the building with 100 decibels of loud sounds and music. We brought 6 of our Dynacord Cobra-2 speakers comprising 6000 watts of power and had them lifted onto a crane to blast sound to 100db. Turns out, the building was indeed sound proof.

Toward the end of 2011 we ran the sound for a Hungarian performance using our mikes, mixers, speakers and effects.  The show was fun to watch, running for two hours each night in Hollywood.
