Video Studio 1 & 2 are wheelchair accessible. Unfortunately the other filming spaces are not wheelchair accessible.

There is a green room and makeup area next to studio 1, which is to booked separately at a cost.  

There is a small sofa area with a coffee table, dining table and chairs, and a shower room on the ground floor included in the studio.

WiFi is available throughout the studios and building and is included in the cost of the studio. CAT 6 ports are also available in each room and the use of them is included in the cost of the studio as long it lands within the following guidelines.

1: Each studio has a separate LAN to itself that is fed via a router/firewall and switch.

– The router has two WAN public feeds, so if either 1GB lines into the building fails, it should swap to the other line after approximately 2 minutes.

– The router feeds the LAN to a switch that feeds the WiFi aerials (AP) and door entry phone.

– Both of those items are also powered by the switch.

– The router provides basic firewall protection to stop external intrusion.

– The WiFi APs are 2.4 Ghz, 5 Ghz and WiFi 6 capable.

– At least two CAT6e sockets are also fed from the switch, normally beneath of next to the rack cabinet.

– The LAN has a different IP range in each studio, ie.

– The WiFi SSID and password is different in each room and needs to be as the WiFi is on the LAN and anyone on the WiFi for a room can see the entire LAN of that room: so if the client has a hard drive with file sharing enabled, anyone on that WiFi and hard wired sockets can see the file share.

2: If you need to plug in your own router, you can – just use one of the hard wired sockets and it will dish out an IP address and provide internet.

3: If you require a public IP for the hire, fed straight from a 1GB public IP, this is available but will need a minimum of 1 days’ notice to set up. There will be an additional charge for the time taken to setup fixed IPs etc.  Please note that requesting a public IP on the day of hire may not be possible.
