Voice-over dubbing is a production technique commonly applied to content that does not require audio synchronization with lip movement. After the script is translated the new dialogue is recorded on a separate track. The new dialogue does not completely replace the original audio, but is placed over it at a slightly higher volume that allows the viewer to hear and understand perfectly. Due to the increase in digital channels distributing voice-over content this localization technique is more widely used. It is far less complex than synchronous dubbing and requires less time and has lower production costs. Arkadia provides a complete range of technical and artistic services for the VOICE-OVER DUBBING of documentaries, reality shows, training videos, etc… From the translation and adaptation of the script to casting, dubbing direction, recording, mixing and digital transmission all over the world.
