Ubiquity Broadcasting Corporation opened a new 30,000 square foot 3D production facility in Irvine, Calif. Ubiquity Studios features three separate sound stages, multiple edit suites, a fully equipped gourmet kitchen and creature comforts such as a hair salon and luxurious green room.
“I am currently shooting my next 3D IMAX feature on location in Tahiti and I can’t wait to get back to Ubiquity Studios to start postproduction,” said Mike Prickett, Ubiquity’s director of cinematography.
Ubiquity Studios features equipment from Sony, including the new 4K Cine Alta F23, as well as cameras from Sony, Canon and Red. The studios feature professional lighting with 400+ amps per studio and are fully air-conditioned with whisper quiet noise reduction. The three stages feature 30-foot ceilings, green, blue and white infinity walls, elephant doors for vehicle shoots, cranes and grip trucks and ample secure parking.
In addition to its shooting capabilities, Ubiquity Studios features multiple edit bays connected by a high-speed fiber channel network with a high capacity SAN + RAID architecture as well as a viewing center for producers and executives. The studio is supported by a deep talent pool of producers, editors, cinematographers and 3D stereographers.
Future expansion plans include a 4K 3D digital projection system and in-house commercial quality theater with banked seating and a cinema quality screen for showcasing and premiering commercials, music videos, live events and digital and 3D feature films.
Leading action sports brands have recently shot a series of commercials in the 3D studio and were very pleased with the convenient location, professional staff and outstanding production facilities.
In addition to its production capabilities, Ubiquity Studios also produces its own programming including its current series KJ Noons Uncaged featured on Showtime and YouTube focused on the career of KJ Noons, champion Strikeforce fighter and EliteXC Lightweight Champion.
