7 FREE SPACES FOR INDIVIDUAL SOUND EXPERIENCES
We have presented the German cinema and TV audience with coherent and high-quality language versions for more than 68 years. In this respect, we rely on creativity, state-of-the-art technology and digitalisation in all areas. 

ACCOUSTIC DIVERSITY 
At its location in Berlin-Schöneberg, Berliner Synchron has five modern recording studios, which offer technically and acoustically ideal conditions for voice, song and sound recordings.
Two high-end mixing stages, eight multi-functional audio editing stations and two video editing stations complete the trendy studio landscape and offer optimal flexibility on all levels.
All technical workstations are integrated in the currently largest European storage area network [SAN] via glass fibre and guarantee our customers the highest level of security.
