TV Studio Complex Sony-designed, industry standard TV studio complex

Designed by Sony, our Television Studio Complex provides an environment identical to most broadcast installations. It is comprised of two television studios (studios A and B), three dedicated control rooms, a VTR area and a central apparatus room.

The two studios are supplied with eight camera channels. These may be operated with a free mix of camera channels and are nominally shared across both studios as required.

TV Studios A and B

Studio A is a double height studio with suitable facilities for a wide range of productions including multiple set, audience and music or light entertainment shows.

Studio B benefits from a green screen infinity curve and is generally used for interview, news inject and smaller productions.
