Television company dock10 has launched a new studio called HQ8 at MediaCityUK in Manchester.
The facility offers 750 sq ft of space which is suitable for small sets and has green screen capabilities as well as post production infrastructure.
HQ8 promises to provide “affordable but professional studio hire” for creative agencies and digital content creators.
The new facility allows dock10 to deliver a broader range of services, with producers in its main studios able to simultaneously employ a smaller second studio for additional commentary, a behind-the-scenes view or a companion show.
Andy Waters, head of studios at dock10, says: “Digital platforms like YouTube have fuelled an explosion of video content. As serious content creators strive to improve the quality of their output, HQ8 is providing them with the affordable, flexible and professional television facilities to make it happen.
“Our studios have an excellent reputation for enabling the creation of world-class programmes, and we’re excited that HQ8 is making this same level of excellence accessible to an even wider range of new content creators.”
