Recording Studios Built from Ground Up to Provide Unmatched Quality, Control and Soundproofing
ALPHARETTA, Ga. (December 18, 2012) – This December, Santa’s getting GM Voices some brand new digs. The leading voice prompt producer for automated technologies will pack up and move one exit up the highway into a facility constructed specifically for its refined voice recording production process. The enhanced accommodations will allow for greater output, quality control and creative multimedia possibilities.
The 18,000-square-foot space, occupying the third and fourth floors of a Shiloh Road office park near McFarland Parkway and Georgia 400, is the result of careful, yearlong planning and the need to expand to best meet the demands of a growing Fortune 1000 customer base. “GM Voices has seen its market share and service offering grow over the past several years,” said Marcus Graham, CEO and Chief Creative Officer. “Our customers are using professionally-recorded voice on a host of evolving technologies, and this move was designed to give us greater flexibility to fit a true need in the marketplace.”
The facility’s third floor will be “GM Voices Central,” the workspace dedicated to the day-to-day operations of the company. The production, sales, order entry and marketing teams will be based in this area. The fourth floor will be occupied by executive management, executive support, and accounting; it will also be home to the company’s primary meeting spaces, with additional areas designated for future expansion.
On the production wing, GM Voices will be equipped with three recording control rooms, two voice-over booths, and eight audio/video editing suites. With quality and control being two primary motivators for relocation, the production space was constructed to give audio engineers an environment to deliver crystal-clear, natural-sounding audio. “From floor to ceiling, our control rooms, recording booths, and edit suites were built specifically for sound,” said Tim Shoemaker, Vice President of Operations. “Every room is insulated and soundproofed from within the walls, acoustically treated, shielded from outside noise and ventilation sound.” The rooms will also feature the latest ISDN-to-studio technologies, microphones, studio consoles, and visual displays.
An exciting addition, and a sign of the changing tide of customer communications, is GM Voices’ fourth-floor video production studio. Approximately 800 square feet, this space will be occupied by a creative team dedicated to producing innovative video content for GM Voices, its partners, and customers alike. Various props, equipment, staging, and color key setups will be used to stage all manner of video content for Web, training and marketing campaigns. “GM Voices has long outperformed the market when it comes to creative multimedia,” said Graham. “As bandwidth increases and content delivery channels change, video will become more and more essential to companies’ overall story. Our video space is a proactive step toward the future.”
GM Voices has laid the groundwork for a seamless transition. No operational interruptions or downtime is expected, and all phone numbers and email addresses will remain unchanged. You can also contact GM Voices at its new physical address: 6515 Shiloh Road, Alpharetta, GA 30005.
