VICE Media recently built their massive new headquarters in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY. Home to approximately 850 employees it serves as their main corporate hub for international operations. With the recent launch of their new cable TV network, VICELAND, along with their acclaimed HBO series, VICE on HBO, their news network, VICE News, and a slew of original web shows, the space required a suite of audio post production rooms to facilitate the sheer amount of audio content they create in-house.
Working in tandem with LA based studio designer and consultant, Chris Owens, Crossley Acoustics designed and treated five audio rooms for VICE Media. The entire facility is built on independently floated concrete slabs to minimize vibrational transmission from room to room. Control Room A is a large 5.1 capable mix room which was outfitted with a brand new Avid S6 modular control surface and Genelec GLM digital loudspeaker system. Control Room B is a smaller room which is also 5.1 capable and home to an Avid S3. A smaller Control Room C works as an edit suite and runs the majority of voiceover sessions within the facility. Rounding things out are two comfortable and handsome vocal booths meant to handle anything that comes their way.
This buildout is one that will surely last VICE for years to come. We’re beyond proud of the contributions we were able to make to their modern, state of the art facility.
