Inside the Studio

The TV Studio is a complete in-house production facility, producing television content from start to finish.  We can shoot video in various formats, including the Red One Digital 4k, 1080/720 high definition, and standard definition.  There is access to an isolation booth with digital sound recording capabilities.  Adobe Premiere Pro is our primary workhorse for editing the final project together before uploading it to the web or burning it to a DVD.
