Studios

San Francisco Media Group created the first independent live shot facility in San Francisco and we’ve hosted myriads of Bay Area celebrities, business leaders and political pundits for national and international networks.

Studio A and Studio B are available around the clock, seven days a week serving networks in domestic and international time zones. The studios have an HVAC system with a UV-C light filtration system.

Between the Studios A and B is our Control Room

The control room sends signal out by The Switch and LTN networks in addition to IP based transports via our 250Mbps internet connection. We also have the option of satellite relay if needed. We have a variety of switching solutions from BlackMagic Designs, NewTek, and vMix to enhance your show with features like adding live video footage or PowerPoint roll-ins, sending signal out to live stream host sites, creating and layering lower thirds or compositing in a virtual set.
