Why are we telling you about Bridge Studios’ new sound stage?

Well, apart from being massive television and movie fans,  recently worked with Bridge Studios on a complete network infrastructure overhaul and we’re excited to share how these film experts are using our technology!

During the event, Bridge Studios showed off the capabilities of the new sound stage by hanging a full-sized one-tonne pick-up truck from the ceiling (see photo above). They also highlighted their new pervasive wireless throughout the facility as they led visitors on a tour through the sound stage, offices, boardrooms and technology rooms, many of which also featured a wide-array of Cisco collaboration technology.
