Sonata™ Studio Floor at the BBC

Client: BBC

Objective: Supply and install permanent TV studio floor

Specific Requirements: The floor needed to be installed over night between broadcasts and offer a low-reflection surface that compliments professional studio lighting environment.

Installed Product: Sonata™ Studio Floor

The BBC have once again chosen Le Mark to install our Sonata™ HD Studio Flooring for one of their 24 hours a day HD news studios.

As the news studio is in constant use and the refurbishment period was only for a week, a lot of work had to be done in a short amount of time. This not only included taking the old floor out but having to work around an ongoing full studio technology update. This gave the Le Mark installation team a strict timescale to work in, for which they performed and met every deadline.

Le Mark’s Sonata™ had already proved itself to be tough and reliable having been used 24/7 for 3 years in the BBC’s Arabic TV News Studio. Its smooth surface allowed the cameras to roll effortlessly over the studio floor. Another one of Sonata’s great attributes is that its HD matt black surface absorbs and diffuses light, dramatically reducing camera glare.
