The WNED production center is located in downtown Buffalo, in close proximity to I-190. For our out of town clients, we are only twenty minutes from the Buffalo-Niagara airport, five minutes from the Peace Bridge to Canada and directly across the street from one of Buffalo’s premier hotels.
WNED’s broadcast center is home to one of the largest studios in our three-state area (outside of NYC). The 21 foot grid height and 6500 square feet of space make it possible to handle productions with large scale sets and/or studio audiences. It has been home to The Mark Russell Comedy Specials for PBS and the New York senatorial debate for MSNBC, as well as numerous rental clients for the production of satellite media tours, webcasts, infomercials and network news programs. We are fully HD capable with a Ross Vision Quattro (four M/E) switcher, Chyron HyperX2 HD graphics and five Sony HDC-1400 cameras, including three with Autoscript teleprompter units. Our video control room has been recently upgraded with a new monitor wall and a user-friendly three-tier layout. Contact us for more details, availability or to get a quote.
