Below is a general guideline of source materials we can readily accept and a guide on how we generally deliver our final mixes. Please inform us as soon as possible prior to the session which types of source materials you will be bringing, so we can make arrangements if any transfers/conforming need to be done.

Quicktime DV movie/DV stream or DV-tapes
Format: DV-PAL (25 fps)
Preferred Size: 720-576
  We prefer the use of OMF files exported from the video session. Make sure all the audio and video files are included, but not embedded, and that there are at least 5-second handles on all the audio fragments.
  We can arrange transfers from DigiBeta, BetaSP or other formats for an additional charge.
Data (Sd2, AIF, WAV, 44.1 or 48K, up to 24-bit) CD, DVD or FTP transfer preferred
OMF 2 files (please leave handles on the audio)- preferred
Pro Tools or Logic session (make sure all audio is included)
DAT tapes
We have FTP server capability. It is easily accessible using programmes like Fetch or Transmit. For a username and password, contact us.
  Unfortunately, there is often little uniformity in how many broadcasters or production houses want their final audio delivered. We generally deliver:
TV mixes at -9dBFS 48K/16-bit AIFF
Radio mixes at -6dBFS 44.1K/16-bit AIFF
Multimedia presentations at -3dbFS 48K/16-bit WAV or AIF
Voice-over files mono -6dbFS 48K/16-bit WAV or AIF
Phone message systems 8K Alaw/WAV
  We always do our best to determine the best delivery format. It is a good idea, however, to check in advance how you need your audio in case it differs from our norm, particularly with foreign materials and broadcasters. Digitally converting files down the line can affect their sound quality and levels, so it's best to create the final master file at the studio. We do not have video layback capability onsite - though we can have it arranged (additional charges apply).
