Innovations Park Studios : About Us

Innovations Park Studios (IPS), a brand new digital television production facility located at Frenchs Forest on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, is now open. The facility boasts three state of the art television studios, two edit suites, an audio production suite for mixing music & voice
overs, & a playout facility capable of broadcasting four round-the-clock TV channels.

The largest studio, Studio 1, is already fully booked, being the home of TVSN, Australia’s only shopping channel seen on Foxtel, Austar & Optus. That studio is live-to-air each day from 9.30 in the morning until 9.30 at night and is supported by a technical & production crew of around 15 people. The studio also features 4 robotic cameras that can be controlled either remotely from the control room, or traditionally via camera operators on the studio floor.

Studio 2 is available for either long term or casual hire & already has been booked by commercial directors, programme makers & internet producers. In particular, the free-to-air digital broadcaster EXPO, is a regular user of IP Studios.
