The THX TASA form: THX TASA Form
Audio files: For the trailer of the final mix as it will be in theaters (for a 5.1 mix: 6 channel Broadcast Wave Files; for a 2.0 mix: Lt, Rt. wav files). Files can be delivered via any digital transfer service such as Aspera, WeTransfer, etc.
Payment: The current fee for certification is $550. Indicate payment method on the Dub Stage Report / TASA Request Form under Billing Information. Payment shall be made by check or ACH wire transfer. If you wish to pay by check, please allow time for delivery.
Send the above elements to: firstname.lastname@example.org
NOTE: Please, contact us for submission requirements for Film and Immersive Audio formats (viz. Atmos and Auro-3D). Once we have the form and files, we complete certification within 24 hours, excluding weekends and holidays. If the trailer passes, the certification notice will be promptly e-mailed to you and the MPAA. Trailer is certified upon receipt of that e-mail. Should the trailer exceed the TASA upper limit, the mix will have to be adjusted and resubmitted for certification. The retest fee is $280.
