SquadCast is Collaborating with Dolby

SquadCast announced a unique collaboration with Dolby to provide podcasters with the best audio experience possible.

We are collaborating with Dolby Laboratories, the innovative sight and sound company, to dissolve distance and bring the remote recording experience even closer to reality.

In the coming weeks, Dolby’s powerful spatialized audio technology will be enhancing the SquadCast platform connecting podcasters and guests to sonically feel – and sound like – they are recording in the same room.

“In the new normal that we all live in, high quality interaction and content are more critical than ever. We’re all hungering for intimate connections, and the content you all provide is what keeps us fed…

SquadCast’s mission is well aligned with Dolby’s – to obsessively provide better quality audio to creators worldwide…

When Zach and I first spoke about audio quality, he said that “SquadCast provides you with the highest quality original recording, like organic produce”…

At Dolby, we [can help] “wash that produce”, and for those that don’t like to cook, get you closer to a take out meal…

For those of you that do like to cook, you can leverage the functionality in SquadCast to get your audio dialed in so you can take it over from there…” – Sripal Metha, Senior Director of Dolby’s Media API Platform.

In May of 2020, several new features will be launched to the SquadCast platform, including:

Spatialized audio, that will make you and your guests sound and feel like you’re sonically in the same room while recording together

Enhanced audio mastering
, which will add post-production efficiency through automatic leveling, EQ, background noise reduction and more

Studio audience and listener experience features, offering audience engagement and live-streaming tools (coming later in 2020)

Screen sharing – yet another feature to create a more frictionless remote recording experience

The SquadCast Recording Engine is not changing. All new features are baked into their current pricing and there will be no additional cost for SquadCast customers. As features are added in the coming weeks, SquadCast Hosts will have the option of flipping a switch to get the added functionality when starting and scheduling new recording sessions.
