ISDN And Source Connect

Our ISDN and Source Connect audio studios, at Media City Manchester, are ready to connect with facilities anywhere in the world. In addition, we can connect using ipDTL, Skype and TBU and our experienced engineers will ensure your session runs smoothly.

We use the industry standard Neumann U87 and TLM 103 with many other microphones available on request.

We are also proud users of the Emmy award winning cueing system, EdiCue and Ediprompt. Customisable audio, visual cues and on screen text, assist our engineers and talent in achieving an inspired and professional performance.

Our facilities are air conditioned and designed with plenty of natural light and intelligent lighting systems to make your session as comfortable as possible. Guests are well looked after with comfortable sofa seating, high speed WiFi and complimentary tea, coffee and soft drinks.

We’re located at Tomorrow, opposite the Media City multistory car park only a short walk away from the BBC and ITV. Convenient transport links make our location perfect for those travelling from Manchester City Centre and the North West.

All rates include an engineer, secure audio delivery, domestic ISDN line charges and a line test prior to the session. We know schedules and deadlines can be tight so we’ll always try our best to accommodate last minute and off-peak bookings.

“Having both ISDN and Source Connect Pro studios in our studios was great for a Media City production company based around the corner from our facilities in the Tomorrow building. They had two voice overs booked for a campaign, one needing to connect using ISDN and the other using Source Connect via a London post house. We made it simple for them, and their talent, to record just what they needed.”
