A Brief History

Brief history 6f6f795653beffbba51932c6a4c70cbebf36cf7c56e09cca2f5b4b5458cf6c04

As many successful companies, PrimeVoices was born in a garage on the outskirts of Lyon, France. It was back in April 2000 when we identify and pursue a promising niche in the market for multilingual audio and video. The background of the founders was quite helpful, since we put together our experience in different fields: international journalism, computer sciences and TV production. We also spoke 7 languages put together, a skill that proved to be useful when dealing with overseas clients and providers.

A small business, family run but with a vision to provide top-notch, “prime” voices and multimedia localizing services to companies around the world. So from our modest base in Lyon, France, we began reaching out to a growing global demand thanks to the Internet and its digital revolution.

Our customer base grew and our services raised the attention of International TV stations broadcasting in several languages. They started buying our services, after appreciating our quick turnaround and expertise in audio and video engineering. We also became content providers producing reports and feature stories. Then by 2005 major localizing companies became strategic clients to this day, since they saw clear synergies between their translation services and our audio-visual know-how. Other recurrent clients who help support our business are recording studios, international companies, web and app developers.

Our staff expanded in France and Ecuador, where we opened up in 2011 a subsidiary for post-production and multimedia. Since then our network became as international as our business, adding partner studios in China, Poland, Brazil, Italy and Russia as well as 1,600 professional voice talents and translators.

STUDIOS

Acoustically treated studios for recordings, post-production suites for audio and video editing and a battery of DTP workstations, we have the space and the tools to process many different projects at a time, no matter how complex, multi-lingual or multi-platform they are. From our headquarters in France we are expanding globally with a new studio audio and DTP facility in Ecuador, South America as well as partner studios in Eastern Europe and the Far East.

Creating the right acoustic environment for recording our “prime voices” has been our company’s biggest investment. Our sound studios are our greatest technical asset. When you hear our recordings, you will understand why we are so proud. The UK specialist in acoustic design, Studio People, has built three recording studios for us. Our control rooms and booths are not only great-looking and modern, but they provide the ideal acoustic environment for sound reproduction and voice recording.

Control Rooms

Unique architecture especially created for the finest sound reproduction: insulated walls to eliminate any noise or rumble from outside, sound proof doors and windows, along with an irregular shape of the room and padded ceilings. We use ProTools HD with high-end preamplifiers Avalon and Millenia, as well as Neumann microphones to get the best warm sound from our voices.

Soundproofed Booths

With a typical “room within a room” structure, our studios are surrounded by an empty chamber of 30 cm coupled with thick acoustic doors and special sealed windows. Damping materials within the walls, thick carpet on the floor, and padded tables absorb reflecting noises to create a neutral sound and the perfect ambiance for voice recording. Air ducts feed A/C to the interior through a series of buffers providing a non audible fresh air flow for the comfort of the voice talents inside the booth.

Remote Recording

It’s always a great moment to welcome you as a customer in our studios and share with you the comfort and acoustics of our recording suites. However if you are located far away from Lyon or France, we suggest distant recording. You will avoid the hassle and costs of travelling to supervise a particular recording. Using Skype or Source Connect we will connect you with your favourite voice talent here or anywhere in the world. You will be able to direct the artist in real time and get the best tone and intention for your script. If the talent doesn't speak your language, no worries, we will always get your message across to him with our multilingual staff. With distant recording we get 100% customer satisfaction and everybody involved enjoys a great working moment.
