M2 Television choose HHB Communications to supply three Pro Tools systems

M2 Television has chosen HHB Communications’ specialist post division Scrub to supply three new Pro Tools HD3/ICON systems.
A 32-fader surround spec D-Control and 8-fader D-Command are already installed in Dubbing Suite A and a prep room respectively, with a 16-fader surround spec D-Control ready to go into Dubbing Suite B when a suitable break in a busy bookings schedule allows.
Located in the heart of Soho, M2 TV specialises in long-form documentaries, dramas and promos, with clients including BBC1, 2 and 3, Channel 4, Channel 5, The Discovery Channel and Sky among many others. For Head of Audio Steve Crook, a number of factors combined to make the move to Pro Tools inevitable.
“Pro Tools is particularly freelancer friendly, which gives us greater flexibility,” he said. “The transfer from offline editing to audio post is much faster, giving us more time to be creative, and the powerful third party plug-in support makes it much easier produce cut-down and foreign language versions.”
For Crook, the look and feel of the ICON consoles have also played important roles. “Unlike some of their predecessors, these Digidesign control surfaces are built like proper mixing consoles. The feedback from our clients has been particularly positive in this respect.”
In choosing a supplier, M2 looked for an organisation capable of excelling both before and after the sale.
“Scrub came with an excellent reputation and we’ve certainly had a very positive experience, from initial consultation right through to installation and training,” Crook continued. ”Scrub have been more than willing to attend to the inevitable teething problems, and allowing us to shadow them during the installation has really helped us to quickly assimilate the logic and architecture of the Pro Tools system.”
