(12 ft. to grid) broadcast television production studio lies adjacent to the Black Box performance space. Chroma-key and blackout environments are available.
Three Sony standard definition SDI cameras with teleprompters.
The studio is lit using fine tungsten and florescent lighting instruments controlled by a multi-dimmer ETC lighting console.
The studio is fully soundproofed and doubles as an audio recording facility utilizing a wide selection of world-class microphones and ProTools audio production components to digitally record, sweeten, edit and process audio content.
The facility holds two self-contained production control rooms with professional, 16-input EchoLab Nova 1716x switchers, two 24×4 Mackie audio consoles and Chyron duet graphics systems.
The rooms are divided by a soundproof sliding glass door that when open provides a unique production control classroom allowing for a great amount of collaboration and efficiency.
