- Studio A -8,000 Square feet with 18’ to the grid
- Studio B – 9400 Square feet with 18’ to the grid (110 feet of cyc or limbo)
- Studio C – 900 Square feet virtual studio with 3 remote controlled HD cameras and Tri-caster 850 virtual switcher
The production studio rental most often used is Studio B. The dimensions of that studio are approx 112′ x 84′ (32m x 24m) and 18 feet high (to the grid). The Cyclorama covers two walls and curves around one corner. We are able to cover mostly all the cyclorama with black limbo on a track, and in fact can black out pretty much most of the studio. We have cyclorama lighting as well. There are 18′ high load-in doors that open up to the upper and loading dock areas, so it is relatively easy to bring sets into the studio.

Inscriber Character Generator – Harris software that we run on an XP platform. It is two channel. It can do graphics and animation, but depends on the complexity. Often a client will create animated graphics or fonts off site that we can pull from a drop box and load into our system.
Although our production studio rentals have an inventory of light fixtures. Some rentals may be required, depending on the requirements of the set or availability due to other productions that may be happening simultaneously. The best thing to do would be to send a lighting plot for the set, so our LD can determine what we have available, and what we might have to rent. Availability of lighting inventory is determined by the needs of the client and the variable usage within our facility at the time.
Our catering services include full service meals, buffet style, breakfast, brunch, or craft services for Studio production.
