New York, NY (August 10, 2007) — The production of AT&T Tech Channel, the newly-launched “online video destination for everything tech” from telecommunications giant AT&T, is using a range of services provided by NEP Studios, the largest television production service provider in New York City featuring nine studio facilities.
NEP Studios is a division of NEP Broadcasting, an international provider of outsourced teleproduction services critical to the delivery of live sports and entertainment events.
With programming including a daily up-to-the-minute tech-news show, the Daily Byte, as well as the Hugh Thompson Show, Random Access Theater, and Trumpeter Swans, AT&T Tech Channel delivers a variety of technology-related news, talk, drama and even comedy programming.
NEP Studios’ senior vice president/general manager Barry Katz explains that AT&T Tech Channel used NEP’s turnkey services to meet diverse production needs. “Not only did we provide the studio for a number of shows,” says Katz, “but we have also done remote productions for which we brought a mobile truck. We’ve provided production and support crews, and they go through our travel services to deliver their guests to the studio. It’s a true turnkey situation on the facilities side.”
The Hugh Thompson Show, which presents scientists, authors and celebrities features a studio band and live audience, and is produced at NEP Penn Studios, a two-studio facility located in the Hotel Pennsylvania in New York City.
