Celebro Media has announced plans to open 80 new TV studios worldwide in the next two years, which will compliment their existing facilities in London, Los Angeles and Washington DC.
New studios have already opened in Miami and New York – with Paris, Brussels and Moscow next to go online. In these locations, Celebro Media have chosen Quicklink’s ST500 (Studio-in-a-box) to facilitate contributions back to the company’s MCRs in Washington DC and London.
The ST500 includes in-built lighting and a camera that can be controlled from a remote location using the Quicklink Manager Portal via a Chrome web-browser.
“We needed a technology reliable and robust enough to be used in a broadcast setting, while also giving us a level of control that meant we wouldn’t necessarily need engineers on-site,” said Wesley Dodd, chief executive of Celebro Studios. “The Quicklink ST500 ticked all the boxes we needed for a remote contribution solution – enabling us to have an unattended location where guests can attend to provide contributions and have control over the camera, lighting and audio remotely from our MCRs in Washington DC or London.
“The portability of the Quicklink ST500 is also an important factor. With the transportable Peli case we can very easily roll the ST500 out to any location as part of a pop-up bureau located at a location where there is a news agenda,” he added.
