DOCK10 INVESTS £1M IN NEW MULTIPURPOSE GALLERY SOLUTION
June 2021 – dock10, the UK’s leading television facility, has announced a £1 million investment in a new gallery solution to meet the increasing demand for virtual studios and remote galleries. The new gallery is collocated with dock10’s HQ8 television studio which has been upgraded as a dedicated virtual studio space.
Remote production for international sporting events is changing the way live events are broadcast. This dedicated multipurpose remote gallery works seamlessly with outside broadcasts and connects to the dock10 network which has more than 20 dedicated service providers.
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.”
With a growing demand for alternative locations for recordings and live events, the new gallery will act as a dedicated production gallery for some popular spaces around MediaCityUK. This includes the piazza, which is regularly used for live shows and events such as Blue Peter and Sport Relief, as well as the ‘open centre’ at the front of the studios building which has stunning views of the quayside and has been used for shows including Watchdog and New Year’s Eve Live.
“Broadcasters, production companies, corporates and live events have all been adapting the way they work and discovering new ways to make content and live events happen,” says Andy Waters. “The next generation of virtual studios and remote galleries is a fantastic enabler for this, and customer feedback has been extremely positive. With our new spaces already booking up, I would expect we will be looking to create even more in the future.”

Based at the heart of MediaCityUK, our studios and specialist post production services are used to make everything from popular prime time shows to outstanding commercials and corporate films for leading brands.
