Burbank’s RH Factor Uses Genelec’s Audio Monitors

Craig Hunter, co-owner and mixer at RH Factor, a Burbank, California-based sound production facility, has been a long-time Genelec user and credits them as part of his workflow/business model that keeps his business on the cutting edge.

Recently, RH Factor went through an upgrade to its Studio A, a two-person mix stage that now features a 5.1 monitoring system from Genelec. The setup includes a Genelec 1234A Smart Active Monitoring System for L-C-R, four 8240A Bi-Amplified Smart Active Monitors for side and surrounds and a 7073A Active Subwoofer, as well as Pro Tools HD editors and recorder and an Avid Pro Tools | S6 control surface.

The upgrades were designed to provide high-end clients such as Netflix and Amazon the best possible sound reproduction available, and the installation was assisted by local West Hollywood-based systems integrator Audio Intervisual Design.

Studio A’s picture source is HD-compatible, and all systems are tied to the in-house server system, allowing for efficient transfer of materials between remote and local locations.

With a rich history in the post-production sector, RH Factor’s client list reads like a who’s-who of Hollywood, with credits that include Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, The Real O’Neals, The Guest Book, Boston Legal (for which Hunter won an EMMY) and many others. Recently RH Factor just finished contributing their services to two high-profile series – Santa Clarita Diet for Netflix Studios and Goliath for Amazon Studios – using the monitor and console upgrades.

“Sound post-production is very much like the old chain metaphor – you’re only as strong as your weakest link,” Hunter said. “And when sound is what you do for a living, your equipment choices mean everything. I can tell you that our clients are very satisfied with our listening environment and truly appreciate the translation to broadcast and streaming formats.”
