Scrub, HHB Communications’ satellite operation servicing London’s post-production community, has provided Bubble TV with a powerful upgrade that includes two Avid consoles and Pro Tools HDX. Scrub supplied both 16-fader D-Control (shown) and 8-fader D-Command consoles as part of an upgrade to Bubble’s Soho-based facilities. The award-winning post house, which also operates Duck Lane Studios and Silk Sound in central London, is now running the latest Pro Tools HDX system with V10 software and additional digital HD I/O. A TC Electronic TM9 TouchMonitor loudness meter was also supplied as part of the upgrade. Bubble TV recently embarked on a multi-million pound investment programme that has seen several major hardware upgrades and building renovations. The business is a supplier of content for major broadcasters including the BBC, MTV and Hit Entertainment. Owner and CEO, Chris Phinikas, comments: “We’re constantly looking to stay ahead of the game and invest in our facilities. We’re delighted with our new consoles. They will help our sound engineers create even better content and offer our clients a wider variety of options.” Bubble TV head of audio Adrian Walter adds: “Scrub is a very knowledgeable company who were very helpful throughout the upgrade.” www.hhb.co.uk
