Talking House Productions
DCA was contracted by Talking House Productions owner Steve Luzco (Seagate CEO) to design and build the technical infrastructure for a major recording facility in San Francisco. Studio design was by John Storyk of Walters / Storyk Design Group. The project consisted of three control rooms associated with eleven recording spaces, tied together at a central machine room. A highly flexible and capable system was desired, including great numbers of tie lines and flexible patching.
The project was oriented heavily on the wiring installation, and consisted of over 11,000 terminations.
Studio A: SSL 9080 super analog console with ultimation, Pro Tools HD system with 64 channels of 192 Hz I/O, Genelec Mains and Surround system.
Studio B and C: Protools with ICON control surface: Genelec monitoring.
Central Machine Room: All computer and noisy equipment; central tie line patching, two Studer A827 24-track analog machines with Dolby noise reduction and synchronization by TimeLine and TL Sync.
Office and Residence Systems: Crestron controls, central music distribution, entertainment video distribution, home automation.
Video capability: To be implemented in a future phase: HD video recording systems for session documentation, archive and distribution throughout the facility.
