Audio company BKP has initiated an ISDN link between Dubai and Beirut to enable real time digital voice recording of Arabic voice-over artistes.
Dubai-based music specialist Barry Kirsch Productions (BKP) has launched an ISDN facility between Dubai and Beirut to enable real time digital voice recording of Arabic voice-over artistes for commercials, documentaries and radio spots.
“Many companies in Dubai have ISDN to Europe and the US. But no one has, so far, achieved a link between Dubai and another Middle Eastern country,” says Kirsch. “We are very excited about the link. It means that we now have access to a whole new bank of voices for Dubai’s commercial needs,” he adds.
ISDN compresses and decompresses sound. Users can dial up a number and direct voice-over artistes in real time. BKP has established the link in an exclusive deal with Beirut-based Eddy Jazra Audio Productions
“Dubai has a good selection of voices for commercials. But we have, for a long time now, needed to expand that base with the increased demand for more choice of Arabic voice talents from clients. We now have that opportunity,” says Kirsch.
New voices will be added to the recently launched website at wwww.bkpmusic.com. Clients will be able to audition voices from the increased audio bank or via CD or MP3 from the BKP studios.
