Focus Video Production have a fully equipped audio recording and editing studio based in Hamble, Southampton staffed by experienced sound engineers. Ideal for voice-over artists based on the South Coast of England.
For some voiceover recording, studios like to connect up so the producers in one studio can directly hear and direct the voiceover artist in another studio.

We have used ISDN connections for over 20 years. In short, ISDN creates a one to one connection between two ISDN boxes and uses various codecs to encode and then decode the audio. This has served us well over the years. Now however, we are making the decision to recommend […]

Our studio is often booked to record a voice over for radio and TV programs and adverts. Sometimes the voice over script is delivered by voice actors whose faces will not be familiar to the general public. Other times they are provided by well known actors and TV presenters. When recording for TV we need to have the program playing so the voice-over actors or presenter can pace their reading of the script to the image they see. One of our regular clients is Woodcut Media. They were commissioned to produce a series of TV programs for broadcast to the UK and […]
At the Hampshire Chamber of Commerce breakfast briefing in January, Focus presented information on why having a video strategy is critical for organisations. They then treated all attendees to a hands-on experience of 360 and 360i video as well as green screen filming. The session gave attendees the opportunity to explore these technologies hands-on with Focus staff available to answer questions and discuss ways they could use it effectively in their own organisations. 360 Video Paul led the sessions for 360 video. Using a variety of VR headsets he was able to help participants view 360 videos and experience the added impact and value of […]

“The team from Focus were a pleasure to work with, very professional, easy going and just got on with the job. They also delivered, the video was engaging and captured the atmosphere of the event. I would definitely recommend them and will be using them again in the future.”
Whilst we use professional video cameras and equipment for our work, most of our clients do not want to invest such large amounts of money.
We were recently asked to work on location at St Aloysius Church in Oxford recording a choral performance of the ‘The Dream of Gerontius’ by Julien Chilcott-Monk. The performance was in aid of the Oxford Oratory’s new building program.
Avoiding a pollution incident in the first place is obviously critical, but accidents will happen and the crew that is well drilled will be the one that is best placed to deal with an emergency situation.
The film opens with a fictitious news story about an accident where the crew were totally unprepared and a damaging pollution incident followed. We close using a similar story where the well-drilled crew had everything under control, there was no pollution and hence no damaging repercussions.
