New post-production facilities continue to open at MediaCityUK (MCUK) in Salford Quays, with Timeline Television about to launch a branch in the Blue Tower, featuring a 5.1 dubbing suite, writes Kevin Hilton. Timeline TV works on outside broadcast and general production projects as well as post-production, with established premises in Soho and Ealing, west London. Timeline TV North is set to open in two weeks on part of the 17th floor of the Blue Tower (pictured above the Studios sign), which is connected to the main MediaCity Studios block. The managing director of Timeline TV, Daniel McDonnell, says the new broadcast centre at MCUK will "further cement our presence in the north". The 20,000 square feet space will house online editing and finishing suites, a voice-over booth, audio track-laying room and the 5.1 suite. The dubbing theatre is based on Pro Tools HD with a 16-fader ICON-D control surface. The track-laying area also features Pro Tools and is on the other side of the main suite, with the voice booth in between. Each room has line of sight into the other. The voice-over studio will be used for off-screen commentary as well as general voice work, with Neumann U87 and Coles microphones available. The audio spaces were designed and built by Studio Schemes using floating walls and ceilings. Timeline TV operations director Eben Clancy comments that some equipment is still to be decided, including the 5.1 monitoring system, although this is likely to be Genelec. The company recently installed a new facility at its Ealing centre for horse racing TV specialist Racecourse Media Group (RMG). This includes TV studio control galleries with Yamaha DM2000 and LS9-16 consoles.
