MANCHESTER, NH - March 26, 2007: The long awaited construction for MCAM\'s 2000 sq ft. state of the art, multi-set Studio A begins this week. Studio A will offer our community many new possibilities of recording programs never before available at our public access station. If you want to liven up local dialog by including a panel of participants as well as a call-in audience, then our new, larger talk show set will accommodate you. We are also adding a stage area for musical performances, and a utility area for demonstrations. In addition, we are completing a large, evenly-lit monochromatic background that can be replaced in editing with any virtual background you want. There will be room for a live studio audience and our modular design will allow the studio to be reconfigured for larger community town meeting events as well.
If you thought it was fun to produce programs at MCAM before, wait until you see Studio A! Don\'t miss our Grand Opening, Thursday, April 26th during Open Doors Trolley Night from 5-8 p.m. when we invite the public to come see the new studio and celebrate our new recording capabilities. Stay tuned!
