dock10 has announced a £5m investment in new technology over the next 12 months.

This will mean “significant upgrades” to its studios, post production and media storage as well as the network that supports MediaCityUK.

Studio equipment will include new cameras, vision mixers, multi-view monitors and core routers. It will also invest in the next generation of augmented and virtual reality technology.

Across post production, there will be an expansion of its Flame and Baselight capabilities, plus 4K monitoring. There will also be additional dubbing suite capacity.

The current fibre network will be replaced to meet increased demands of future programme making.

"This announcement reinforces dock10’s ongoing commitment to continually invest in the UK’s very best studios and post production facilities. We want to help content creators make the most of UHD and to explore new technology like AR/VR,” explained Mark Senior, CEO at dock10.

“These upgrades will give our customers the creative edge in a fast moving and competitive market. It is seven years since we opened dock10, and in that time the business has grown into a thriving creative community. This £5 million investment will enable broadcasters and production companies to make the most of the talent and resources that this fantastic regional cluster has to offer, maintaining dock10’s reputation as the UK’s leading television facility.”
