TV Magic to Serve as A/V and Media Consultant for Major Renovation of Lincoln Center’s New York State Theater

NEW YORK — May 14, 2008 — Broadcast systems integrator TV Magic today announced it has been selected as the A/V and media consultant for the renovation of the New York State Theater. The New York State Theater is the home of both the New York City Ballet and the New York City Opera, two of the world’s leading dance and opera companies. The theater is one of the three principal halls of New York’s famed Lincoln Center, together with the Metropolitan Opera House and Avery Fisher Hall, the home of the New York Philharmonic.

As a part of this major renovation, the theater plans to incorporate a state-of-the-art video and audio system that will provide for the increasingly important media needs of both companies. According to Ken Tabachnick, general manager of the New York City Ballet, “The New York City Ballet and the New York City Opera plan to have a technologically advanced media-capable theater that will permit the complete capture, storage, manipulation, asset management, repurposing, and distribution of the companies’ digital assets.”

David Rosenberg, vice president of TV Magic’s eastern operations, added, “This is an exciting project that plays to TV Magic’s strengths in designing and building sophisticated digital media systems. We welcome the opportunity to bring our advanced engineering and design capabilities to a leading cultural venue.”

TV Magic is working closely with the management and staff of the ballet, opera, and theater to define and engineer a flexible design for the renovated HD facility, which will include multiple cameras, robotics, state-of-the-art audio capture, and media asset archiving systems. All will be integrated completely with the ballet and opera’s stage management workflow, and the opera’s titling system. Philip Johnson’s original design for the theater and auditorium will be maintained.

Plans call for the renovation to begin in May 2008 and continue through 2009. TV Magic will provide the design of the HD facility and manage the installation and commissioning of the A/V and media systems.
