In recent years, these studios have modernized their production capabilities and technical conditions, with the most advanced digital equipment in Mosfilm Sound Studio.
The company has the first re-recording studios in the world to receive the Dolby Premier Studio quality certificate from Dolby Laboratories Company in 2006.
Not only do they have the editing and mastering room with the best technology, but they also created unique museums with historical costumes and automobiles from all periods. It is the only studio which has kept its archive of films and carries out a large number of restoration works of films from its gold collection with its own technical and economic resources.
The renowned Director Karén Shajnazarov has received the authors in person with a welcome cocktail to the city of Moscow and to these historic studios. In a brief exchange he has showed interest in the actions that W&DW takes around the world and the importance that the defense of copyright has for the Culture of a country and its audiovisual industry.
