ATG Broadcast has started work on a project to relocate the BBC’s central London production training studio from Marylebone High Street to White City.
The systems integration company will take the BBC Training and Development facility from its current home to a six-storey Wood Lane building in proximity to BBC Television Centre and Media Village.
The project is expected to be completed by the end of August.
The facility includes a Media Gallery which is being equipped with a Media Wall accommodating multiple 42 inch JVC 16:9 preview and programme monitors with under-monitor displays plus and an array of 20 inch Marshall widescreen monitors.
The project also includes replacement of an existing For-A vision mixer with a larger HVS-3800HS, plus a For-A MV1600 multiviewer, Autocue teleprompter, ATG Broadcast Krone frame and wallboxes, AJA and Leitch interfaces, audio induction loop and a sound-control-monitor trolley.
Dave Whitaker, projects manager at ATG Broadcast said: “Much of the installation will be pre-assembled at our Letchworth headquarters, including an 11-bay production desk and a 3 metre wide sound desk, both from Custom Consoles’ Module-R range of studio furniture.”
ATG Broadcast is partnering in the project with Overbury, who will manage refurbishment and fit out.
35 Marylebone High Street is one of three establishments operated by BBC Training and Development, operating in conjunction with the Wood Norton Training Centre near Evesham and BBC Elstree in Borehamwood.
