San Francisco Media Group has completely transformed in the last two years. Former Beyond Pix clients were impressed when they visited the new company for the first time. From the obvious aesthetic changes and technological upgrades to the harmonious and productive company culture that is tangible to anyone working on a project here, San Francisco Media Group is an entirely new experience for even our existing clients.
Our Battery Street Stage (formerly Studio D) was remodeled entirely. There’s a green screen wall at one end of the room and a white cyc cove on the other, giving our clients greater flexibility. We have been producing live and recorded scripted productions from virtual events and remote interviews/presentations, to corporate videos, advertisements, and documentaries.
Among the upgrades we’ve made to this space, we built a full, raised lighting grid and installed a new HVAC system. When COVID hit, we installed hospital-grade UV-C and HEPA filtration in all of our studios to kill airborne viruses.
We opened the workspace between our Control Room and Producer’s Room to allow for better communication and workflow during productions, and we have upgraded many of our core components to support UHD.
Beyond modernizing our technology, we’ve also upgraded our comfort spaces. The kitchen has a new floor and refinished butcher block counters. The stage lobby is bright and redesigned to maximize the use of space with a counter for craft services and cafe tables for eating or working on laptops.
Our Broadcast facility has gone through renovation. In our two insert studios, we have upgraded cameras, teleprompters, and monitoring equipment, including installing 4K-capable scopes to ensure the image is always color-accurate. Our new height-adjustable desks for on-camera desks offer a modern look and better comfort. The addition of desktop charging ports allows guests to keep their devices at hand and available.
We have added the LTN Network to our transmission protocols, which allows us to connect to a more extensive studio network while providing a broadcast-quality connection.
We remodeled our spacious green room with a new makeup room with color-matched production lights where our Studio A and B guests can get their makeup and hair done. The room is equipped with comfy couches, a massage recliner, and a 4K Monitor, allowing our guests to see the show they will be on to prepare for their upcoming appearance, and their team can watch it live as it airs.
It feels like an entirely new company after redesigning our brand, renovating our spaces, and upgrading our technology.
