Widget Post (Culver City, Calif.) has installed CEDAR Audio's Cambridge System, an advanced audio restoration system. Widget is the first company in North America to acquire the CEDAR Cambridge, which allows highly detailed noise reduction to be achieved while maintaining the dynamic range of the original audio.

Most recently, the company has restored and produced 5.1 up-mixes to audio tracks for DVD releases of Thelma & Louise, Robocop, A Fish Called Wanda, My Left Foot, Army of Darkness, A Bridge Too Far, Spaceballs and Platoon.

According to Clive Osborn, sales director at CEDAR Audio UK, "We are very excited that Widget has chosen to acquire a Cambridge system; it is a true testament to have our equipment in use by [Widget co-founder Brian] Slack and team on some of the most challenging audio restoration projects to date."

"This new piece of gear allows us to do some unbelievable restoration work. With very little tweaking, we were able to take some extremely noisy audio from West Side Story, Kiss of the Spider Woman, Pink Panther Strikes Again and A Shot in the Dark and output some very clean tracks almost automatically," commented Slack. "I anticipate that with the Cambridge, we will be able to restore films that would have been cost-prohibitive to complete manually and dramatically decrease turnaround times on complex restoration projects."
