WORKING DURING COVID-19
Adapting to changing working conditions associated with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, PCB Productions spearheaded the creation of remote recording systems to ensure consistent quality and fidelity for all game projects in production.
PCB has partnered with industry giants such as Sennheiser, Apogee Digital, Neumann Microphones, Source Elements, and Blue Microphones, for this unique undertaking.Through these strong partnerships, PCB has developed a self-contained recording system to deliver sanitized, state of the art production equipment straight to each actor’s door. Each rig is composed of a Neumann TLM 103 studio microphone, which has established itself worldwide as a "modern classic", Apogee Duet recording interface and Source Connect Pro remote connection software to record actor’s performances. For monitoring, the rigs feature a pair of Sennheiser HD 300 PRO headphones. These portable location systems directly connect to PCB’s studios and enable the PCB team to direct and record high-quality audio, consistent across all performs, creating the best possible conditions to craft the highest quality games.
Dialog Production - Sound Design - Music
PCB’s state-of-the-art post facilities are some of the top digital production studios in the world.
PCB features 5 recording suites, 2 voice over stages, and private grounds for clients. PCB's innovation in technology has pioneered script-on-screen systems and VOCAP dialog production. PCB's all-digital facility also features Dolby Surround mixing, M&K THX Certified surround systems, ProTools HD recording systems, and integrated Game Console development, as part of one of the leading development studios in North America.
MOCAP / Performance Capture Direction
Performance Capture, Facial Captue, Motion Capture and Talent Performance are crucial for AAA production. Working with talent, writers, designers, and production teams to achieve superior results is the focus of our projects. Our goal is to seamlessly blend technology and creativity into outstanding performances.
VOCAP is a proprietary technology allowing actors to perform together as a cast, in a specialized sound stage at PCB’s post production facility in Los Angeles. A hybrid of Voice Over and Motion Capture, this proprietary capture method allows for superior quality and acting performances, while delivering extremely high fidelity recordings.
FACECAP is a proprietary technology allowing actors to capture and replace facial performances for games and animation. A hybrid of Voice Over and Motion Capture, this proprietary capture method allows for superior quality and acting performances, while delivering extremely high fidelity recordings.
