IMG Studios: A State-Of-The-Art Facility

News Image
Walk into IMG Studios and you will agree it is a great place for programme makers to work.

Its state-of-the-art production facilities are available 24/7 and provide the flexibility to produce almost any production genre. There's channel hosting for news and sports channels such as The Premier League contents service, and Sport 24 which provides live sport to cruise ships and airlines (you need never miss a goal on your travels!).

There's light entertainment too such as The Eurovision Song Contest, commercials and promos, and even streaming of live E-Gamer Tournaments.

Based at Stockley Park in West London and a stone's throw from Heathrow Airport (very useful for international guests), these high grade facilities are housed in a stunning Norman Foster designed building. It's a modern environment that buzzes with creativity. IMG Studios enjoys being at the forefront of broadcast technology, keen to embrace and share the benefits of new production techniques with its clients.

Programme makers can choose from four HD broadcast studios, over 72 Avid based edit destinations, radio studios, worldwide connectivity and streaming capabilities. There's even Camouflage, an award-nominated IMG visual effects team. Uniquely, you can park on site for free and enjoy the added convenience of excellent catering and real coffee provided by runners eager to please.

There's the advice and technical support too. The IMG Studios Production Services team and Engineers have a wealth of experience and expertise providing clients with efficient and tailor-made workflows.

"We try to add as much added value to the customer experience as possible," says Head of Studios, Cherry Portbury. "No two projects are ever the same and we tailor a variety of resources, including crew, to client requirements, taking care of those who come to the Studios to work or visit. The technical side is vital but so are the peripheral activities if a client is to have a positive experience."

Both short and long term projects are welcome. Alaraby TV is a good example of the latter and this Arabic news and current affairs channel has been hosted by IMG Studios since its first day on air in January 2015. The channel has grown significantly in that time, and has made the most of the facilities and expertise on offer. It now utilises two studios, has its own transmission and post suites not to mention production office space.

Stockley Park is a business park with a difference, being part of a country park and golf course no less. There are beautiful grounds and pleasant lakes to walk around and be inspired by. In addition to walking a few holes on the golf course, you can borrow one of the IMG Studios' bicycles for a leisurely ride around the park. Surely no other production facility can offer that!
