Cavalier Studios – steeped in musical history

16 Sep 2015

Cavalier Studio is one of the Uk’s leading video production companies with a very interesting musical history and it’s on our doorstep!

Cavalier Studios was built in 1980 by Lol Cooper initially to record music and voiceovers then over the years expanded to include video production, green screen studio, CD, DVD and USB duplication, printing and packaging as well as language translation services.

In the early days a variety of artists used the studios to record demos including The Stone Roses, James, Mick Hucknall, Corinne from Swing Out Sister, When In Rome, various members of Sad Café & 10cc plus many many more. Also, many people from the showbiz world worked in the studios including, Ken Dodd, Bill Tarmey, Toyah Wilcox, Ian Smith & Anne Charleston (Madge & Harold) Stu Francis and in the same period thousands of voiceovers were recorded for radio, TV and advertising agencies.

Most recently we completely refurbished the Audio Room and have been working with Thin Lizzy founder member Eric Bell who started the band in Dublin in 1969 and worked on the first 3 albums with Phil Lynot and Brian Downey playing on such hits as ‘The Rocker’ and ‘Whiskey in the Jar’. We have just done a photo-shoot and video blog at Cavalier Studios for Eric’s forthcoming album ‘Exile

Around 1990 we started filming sporting events and became the largest supplier of football rushes to Granada TV & Carlton TV, filming Football League games for their highlights programs. We still film Football League games and upload the footage directly to ITN Production for Channel 5’s latest highlights program.

In 2008 we built our own Green Screen studio with AutoCue and computer controlled lighting, which enables us to film presenters or products and during the edit place them in any type of still, moving or animated background.

During the early 1990’s our CD and DVD duplication department really took off and offers fast turnaround CD and DVD copying and we now have the capacity duplicate up to 5,000 discs a day. We offer full colour printing directly onto the discs and colour printed booklets, inlays and sleeves for all the different types of cases as well as producing colour printed card packaging e.g. card wallets, digipacks, studpacks etc. We also handle CD and DVD replication for larger quantities from 1,000 to 1 million and vinyl pressing.

Then along came USB. We have a comprehensive range of styles which can be branded with your company’s logo or message. They can be colour printed, engraved or embossed depending on the style of the USB and your data uploaded and also locked if required.
