dock10 is to invest £5 million in new technology over the next 12 months with significant upgrades to The Studios, Post Production, media storage platforms and the network that supports MediaCityUK.
New equipment in The Studios will include cameras, vision mixers, multi-viewer monitors and core routers. It will also incorporate the next generation of AR/VR technology.
In Post Production, dock10 will expand its Flame and Baselight capability and 4K monitoring to meet the growing international demand for UHD content. Extra dubbing suite capacity is also being added.
dock10 also manages the high-speed cross-site fibre network at MediaCityUK that provides broadcasters and production companies with the connectivity needed for transferring high-quality video. This network infrastructure will be replaced too. 
Mark Senior, CEO at dock10, said: "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. 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.”
