One TV news studio is already operational, and features a Calrec Zeta audio console. In late 2010, Calrec Audio won the tender process for the audio consoles in the next four TV news studios to be built on the site, on the basis of the Artemis console's satisfactory value-for-money proposition.

Three of the new TV news studios will receive identical 40-fader Calrec Artemis Beam consoles, and will be dedicated to 24-hour news channels. The fourth, a larger flexible rig studio, will receive a 48-fader console.

News teams start moving in to the studios from 2012. The Artemis Beam consoles are not expected to go on air until 2012-3.
