MSG Network premiered their new studios across the street from their old home at Madison Square Garden.
The networks, including MSG Network and MSG Plus, recently opened two new high definition studios, Studios A and B, and new state-of-the-art production facilities at 11 Penn Plaza.
Over 60 miles of fiber optics are used to link up between the arena and the studios.
Studio A is the new home of all New York Knicks and New York Rangers post-game shows, as well as MSG’s weekly comprehensive hockey show Hockey Night Live. Pre-game programs for both sports will continue to be shot from the Geico Studio Suite inside Madison Square Garden.
Studio B will house pre-and post-game shows for the Knicks and Rangers when the teams are on the road. Both studios will be used for additional live and taped original programs on MSG and MSG Plus.
“As the leader in New York sports and entertainment, it was imperative that we create an atmosphere that was on the cutting edge of technology and efficiency, while providing an impressive visual experience,” said Dan Ronayne, executive vice president and general manager, MSG Networks. “MSG has always been a leader in technology, and these new facilities will allow us to continue to enhance the viewer experience at home.”
In addition to the two studios, the fully integrated HD facilities at 11 Penn feature state-of-the-art technology for production, post-production and media operations, including the latest in audio/video, transmission, graphics and communications.
