Parasound Earns Screen Credit in
Star Wars Episode II
San Francisco (5/16/02) -- Parasound Products, Inc., today
annouced that it has been honored by Lucasfilm for the contributions of
its products to sound design and editing of "Star Wars: Episode II
-- Attack of the Clones." The movie, which debuts today, lists Parasound
in the credit lines.
With the explosive growth of consumer home theater systems,
Lucasfilm and its Skywalker Sound facilities use premium THX Home Theater
products in the production process to ensure that sound tracks play as
well in homes as in theaters.
The movie's producer, Rick McCallum said, "Parasound
THX Home Theater products were used during the sound design and editing
phases of Star Wars Episodes One and Two. The transparency and accuracy
of the sound enabled us to make critical sound decisions at every stage
in the post production process."
"This is a great honor for our company," said
Parasound's president, Richard Schram. "Out of hundreds of audio
companies and dozens of THX licensees, Lucasfilm chose Parasound. When
the world's best movie sound professionals buy and use our products, it
is an affirmation for those dealers and consumers who have made a similar
decision to choose Parasound products."
Founded in 1981, Parasound Products, Inc., is a privately
owned U.S. company that specializes in providing affordable audio and
home theater components to the critical listener. Parasound's products
