ITV Productions has invested almost£250,000 on a studio upgrade at The Manchester Studios.

Studio 6, home to the Jeremy Kyle Show, has been kitted out with an HD-capable four M/E Snell and Wilcox Kahuna vision mixer, a new floor and air-conditioning.

The Manchester Studios has also recently upgraded the audio monitoring in all five of its multi-camera studios by purchasing a range of loudspeakers from Klein + Hummel.

The Manchester Studios is home to, amongst other things, University Challenge, A Question of Sport, Mastermind and Brainbox. It is based in the Granada building on Quay Street in Manchester.
