Control A

Completely rebuilt in 2012, Control A is centered on Newtek’s TriCaster 860 Production System.  Comfortable and productive, the room offers an inviting and creative environment to produce shows.  The TriCaster features “virtual sets”, to make your talent appear on a Hollywood quality production without the cost and complexity of building a real set.  The Soundcraft 24 channel audio board lets an operator focus on mixing quality sound.  Our training program and staff assistance allows community producers to access the latest tools for creating their vision.
