Television Studios - MediaCityUK

TV Studio Control Room

We have 2 TV studios. Both are kitted to full professional specification. Studio A has separate control rooms for sound and vision. Studio B is our virtual studio and has the largest Orad pattern based chroma key install they have ever done. This means that we can do a full 3D virtual studio. The virtual studio means that we can put anything behind people in the set - in 3D too, so if the cameras pan, the image's perspective remain consistent.

You will be using these facilities for some of your video and TV modules.
