Dock10 has invested £1 million in its gallery facilities, to meet client demand for virtual studios and remote galleries.

The investment is part of a series of updates that has also seen Dock10 upgrade HQ8 studio to a dedicated virtual studio space.

The new gallery will act as a dedicated production gallery for filming spaces around MediaCityUK, including the piazza, which is regularly used for live shows and events such as Blue Peter and Sport Relief; and the ‘open centre’ at the front of the studios building which has views of the quayside and has been used for Watchdog and New Year’s Eve Live.

This remote gallery also “works seamlessly with outside broadcasts and connects to the dock10 network, which has more than 20 dedicated service providers,” says Dock10.

Andy Waters, head of studios at Dock10, said: “We are keen to work with OB providers and the new gallery is designed to complement their service rather than compete with them. Live sporting events including the FA Cup Final and the Premier League have already been successfully delivered using our remote gallery service.”

“The next generation of virtual studios and remote galleries is a fantastic enabler for this, and customer feedback has been extremely positive,” adds Waters. “With our new spaces already booking up, I would expect we will be looking to create even more in the future.”
