Undeterred by this year’s COVID-19 health challenges, Éclair Versioning & Accessibility has added a new state-of-the-art recording room to the Vanves’ facility as part of a wider reorganization of its Parisian studios, which included changes and upgrades to a number of its recording studios. The company has also opened a new dubbing facility in Barcelona.
The new room in Vanves, known as Audi 1; occupies more than 70 square meters with a volume more than 325 cubic meters and is being used both for theatrical and TV recordings. EVA’s facility in the French capital now has five hybrid rooms enabled both for recording and mixing, two rooms dedicated to recording and another two exclusively designed as mixing studios. The company’s capacity in France also benefits from three additional studios at its Strasbourg facility.
Bouchra Alami, EVA’s French country manager says, “Our teams have worked very hard during these last weeks to complete Audi 1; the initial feedback received from customers has been excellent. This addition continues the path started with Tecnison’s acquisition and the build of our Berlin studios, listening and responding to our customers’ needs”.
The new facility in Spain, centrally located within easy reach of public transport, and already known as Tecnison Barcelona by EVA, spreads over three floors. As well as ample office space, it houses two traditional recording studios that have recently been upgraded and are already in full use, a third recording room and two edit / TV mixing rooms, as well as five recording booths dedicated to audio-books and podcasts’ creation.
Ana Arbona, Tecnison/EVA’s country manager in Spain says, “Having this new, larger facility, should efficiently support our company’s growth. It adds capacity to our Spanish operation and also addresses our international customers’ needs, bringing additional flexibility.
We are all excited about this project and how it complements EVA’s existing studios’ network. Opening Tecnison in Barcelona has always been an objective for us and we are very proud of now having a studio there. Who wouldn’t want to be in Barcelona.”
Angel Martin, EVA’s managing director says, “As we continue to demonstrate every day, our commitment to the localization industry is second to none. EVA’s teams have adapted to this year’s unexpected challenges, revising workflows in response to changing circumstances and, as always, finding solutions to our customers and partners’ needs. Under these extraordinary scenarios, to have implemented studio upgrades, opened a new recording room and completed the Barcelona facility, and all in such short period of time, is result of an extraordinary effort. We are proud of these achievements across Europe and of the trust placed by our partners in our teams.”
EVA has dubbing facilities in Vanves (Paris), Strasbourg, Berlin, Karlsruhe, Madrid and now Barcelona, as well as a team based in Rabat (Morocco). Éclair Versioning & Accessibility’s customers have access to 43 studios across 7 facilities in 3 key European territories, including 33 recording and 19 mixing rooms, 9 of which are enabled both for recording and mixing, adding greater flexibility.
