                    [post_content] => RBDG was commissioned as design architect and acoustician for NFL Films' new world headquarters, a ground-up 200,000 sq. ft. complex in Mt. Laurel, NJ. Designed to meet growing production needs of NFL Films and the constantly changing worlds of audio, video, and film technology, the facility is a combination of two buildings linked together with a two-story office bridge element.

The technical building houses all of the spaces where audio and video are recorded, edited, combined, broadcast, and archived. The audio area features three mix rooms, each with a studio, a mix-to-picture room, three pre-mix rooms, three music edit rooms, two sound transfer rooms and two large MIDI composition rooms.

Studio A, the largest of the three studios, can accommodate an orchestral ensemble. Studios B and C are smaller recording studios, each with a dedicated control room. The audio area’s central machine room holds racks of technical equipment that is accessible from any of the edit or control rooms.

The video area includes eight online edit suites, six of which use video projection for master monitoring. All suites are equipped with 5.1 surround audio and are designed for eventual conversion to nonlinear editing. Six telecine rooms allow NFL Films an astonishing capacity for transferring film to tape.

The large video central machine room has the capacity for 200+ racks of equipment, and provides NFL Films the capacity to integrate the next generation of HDTV hardware without taking current systems offline. A 6,500 sq. ft.  fire-proof concrete videotape vault in the technical building allows NFL Films to safeguard its extensive video library.

A 60' x 80' Sound Stage includes a two-wall cyclorama, motorized lighting grid, 'drive-in' access, and dressing and make-up facilities. A smaller 30' x 30' insert stage, as well as stage-area audio and video control rooms, surround the larger sound stage. Support spaces for set construction and production storage are also nearby.

The administrative building includes a 150-seat screening theater for previewing work in progress. A film processing lab develops the many miles of film that NFL Films shoots each year. Eight decades of football film history will be preserved in a 3,200 square-foot fire-proof, climate-controlled film vault.

                    [post_content] => BYU Broadcasting (BYUB) is home to Brigham Young University’s broadcast channels. From the Provo facility, four television and five radio entities – among them BYUtv, BYU Television International, KBYU Eleven, BYU Radio, Classical 89 KBYU-FM, and Create TV – are produced and distributed via broadcast, cable, satellite and the Internet.

BYUB now operates from a 100,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art HD production and distribution facility that consolidates the content creation and distribution operations which previously originated from two older, separate TV and radio facilities. RBDG helped design the radio and television broadcast spaces to achieve a level of acoustical and audio quality that would live up to BYU Broadcast’s global reputation.

The new BYUB facility features three television studios, three audio post production studios, a recording studio, four voice-over rooms, two on-air radio studios, 15 video editing rooms, and six master control (distribution) rooms where outgoing signals are monitored for quality. One of the television studios is a combination studio/auditorium/screening room with in-house audio mixing capability. In addition, there are two production control rooms, each with their own audio control room, for live and taped studio productions. Tie-lines between the TV audio network and radio network enable simulcast of events.

The diversity of technical spaces under one roof made this project particularly challenging. The acoustical design had to ensure there would be adequate sound isolation between rooms, quiet mechanical systems, and room acoustics that made it possible to accurately monitor audio programs. It required a lot of coordination, starting with the earliest design and continuing until construction was complete.

The RBDG team was faced with having air-handling equipment located on the second floor immediately adjacent to the studios, with huge ducts traveling overhead to feed the rooms beyond. Their solution was to create a separate interior concrete deck for the main studio, so the ducts could be routed through the interstitial space without having their breakout noise impact the production activity below. The result: background noise levels in Studio A are below a Noise Criterion rating of NC-15.

In addition to the technical and digital/online operations of the radio and television channels, the facility has offices and support spaces to provide for a staff of more than 300 full-time employees, part-time production crew, and students. RBDG helped ensure that the entire building would achieve BYU’s goal of improving its working environment for BYUB’s production team and the overall quality of programming for its viewers.

                    [post_content] => When the nation’s largest church decides to relocate to a new facility, it takes a major construction effort. When the move involves transforming a former sports arena into an intimate worship experience for 16,000 congregants, the challenge is even greater. Led by Pastor Joel Osteen, the church took the Compaq Center, added a five-story building that includes a 27,000 sq.ft. media suite for audio and video production, replaced and renovated all of the systems throughout the campus, and created a facility that is unrivaled in both its capacity and the environment it offers for worship.

The project involved three separate but related challenges: live sound, television broadcast, and audio / video recording and post production. RBDG initially was sought out to design the new broadcast and production facilities, but also was asked to oversee acoustics within the main worship space.

The challenge of converting a sports arena to an intimate worship experience meant significant changes to the acoustics within the space, as well as making it a much quieter venue. RBDG also was dealing with a variety of noise and vibration issues - sound isolation from the concourse and a new chiller plant, and from traffic on the freeway just outside the building. A barrier beneath the arena seating was needed as part of the fire separation scheme for the new sanctuary, so RBDG devised one to serve triple duty in also achieving acoustical separation from the nursery spaces below and for low-frequency absorption in the main worship space.

For the Media Suite on the fifth floor of the new Family Life Center, RBDG provided architectural, interior and acoustical design services. The Center houses the video and audio production control rooms, camera shading, audio recording studios, post production, editing and graphics rooms, as well as the central technical equipment hub for broadcast and media systems campus-wide.

                    [post_content] => Launched in 2003, NFL Network became available to millions of homes on cable and satellite, primarily covering NFL games. As the network’s programming expanded, more production space was needed that could provide better quality output. Following the successful architectural / acoustical design of the 200,000 sq. ft. NFL Films headquarters project, in January 2006 the NFL hired RBDG to handle the facility design for the network’s fast-track renovation expansion. The catch: it had to be completed and operational before the start of the season in August, leaving a mere six months for design and documentation of the architecture, acoustics, building infrastructure and technical systems, and to outfit, occupy and bring it all on line.

As planned, six months later NFL Network was up and running in 25,000 sq. ft. of new production facilities and shooting from another 10,000 sq.ft. of renovated soundstage and support areas. New production spaces included four additional production and audio control rooms, a voice over booth, one camera shading control room, nine Final Cut Pro edit bays, a graphics department with 12 designer workstations plus delivery workstations for ingest and output, and a 122-rack central machine room. The new facilities were built with HD infrastructure and 5.1 surround audio capability.

One of the biggest challenges was a condensed timeframe. To meet the deadline, renovation of the former soundstage was accelerated ahead of new construction. Temporary production facilities were created outside the studio, much like the remote trucks used during the coverage of league games and the Super Bowl. In that way, the remaining spaces could be brought on-line as they were completed. Despite the time constraints, RBDG’s focus was on providing a facility of the highest caliber, so there was no cutting corners on acoustical or technical performance.

Building a broadcast facility within an existing working production soundstage complex posed some particular challenges in achieving adequate sound isolation from the building and in suppressing HVAC noise and vibration. The building's existing roof structure could not support additional ceiling loads for either the new soundstage or the production spaces, so RBDG had to create structures that would support the new work from the floor. The sound isolation ceilings for the production spaces are supported from the walls, so that each room becomes a free-standing box with no ties to the building that could transmit vibration from the mechanical systems or other building functions.

                    [post_content] => For this 90,000 square foot building, RBDG designed technical facilities which include two audio recording studio complexes, a MIDI lab, a television studio with associated video and audio control rooms, two video post production rooms, eight booths, a digital graphics lab, central machine room, electronic newsroom, and a 30-foot mobile teleproduction vehicle with maintenance areas, along with traditional classrooms, seminar rooms and staff offices.

One unique aspect of each audio suite is the teaching lab adjacent to the control room. The labs provide an acoustically accurate listening environment for the entire class. Images from remote pan and tilt cameras in the control room and studio are fed to three screens in the labs. The students can actually see more at one time than they would if they were in the control room. In the audio studios, the control room by itself is a production facility. The adjacent teaching labs accommodate 25 students on tiered seating. A complex communications systems links the control room lab and studio to allow interaction among the students, instructor and production personnel.

Besides the design requirements of creating appropriate room acoustics within each of the diverse production spaces, the concentration of acoustically sensitive spaces demanded special attention to the sound isolation construction surrounding the individual rooms. These facilities also have exacting criteria for extremely low noise environments, which necessitated extraordinary acoustical performance from the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing infrastructure that serves them.

                    [post_content] => Media Resource Group (MRG), a Tennessee A/V production company, collaborated with RBDG to create a space that would accommodate its rapid growth and expanding needs. A former shopping mall was transformed into a 17,000 sq. ft. comprehensive facility that maximized MRG's dual capabilities in A/V production and technical engineering.

The A/V production area is composed of a state-of-the-art recording studio with a control room and an audio studio with four integral booths.  Dividing the control room from the audio studio is a floor-to-ceiling double glass wall allowing optimal interaction between the artist and the production team. The studio’s technology includes a Euphonix CS3000 console with 5.1 surround sound mixing and a Studer 48-track digital recorder. Supporting the recording studio is a MIDI production studio featuring digital multi-track recording, an AVID Audio Visions Room, and eight Pro Tools hard disc editing suites.

MRG's Technical Operations Center supports three video post rooms with digital Betacam, two on-line video editing suites, one off-line suite and a 3,500 sq.ft.soundstage. With so many capabilities and specializations offered, MRG is a one-stop shop for those in need of audio/visual services.

Beyond the 17,000 square feet occupied by MRG, their former parent company and mall co-tenant Life Care Centers of America hired RBDG to transform an additional 18,000 square feet of undeveloped space into an acoustically sound telecommunications center and a 153-seat lecture center/screening room, with two dedicated teleconferencing rooms and support areas.

                    [post_content] => World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) produces hours of original television programming airing each week, plus music recordings released by some of wrestling’s biggest names. Live events like Wrestlemania and Smackdown feature increasingly more elaborate audio and video production components. WWE needed production capabilities that could keep pace, and turned to RBDG to design new technical space in its Stamford, CT, facility.

RBDG transformed a 9,500 sq.ft. warehouse area into a distinct world for audio post and music production. The new technical space is comprised of an audio post control room and announcer booth, a music control room, a live studio with isolation booth, a central equipment room, plus offices and a new outside entrance.

The design team faced the challenge of balancing comfortable usable spaces with the aggressive techno edge that is so much a part of the WWE mystique. Large expanses of glass allow visual connections between rooms while revealing the blend of craftsmanship and technology. One wall of the music studio features earth-colored split face concrete block that supports custom radius cherry wood diffusers necessary to achieve the acoustical results required of the live room.

A smoother workflow was another key element in the facility’s redesign, especially considering WWE’s high production volume and tight deadlines.“The main benefits of the redesign have been greater work output in terms of both quality and volume,” noted Chris Argento, WWE senior post mixer/ sound designer.

                    [post_content] => Completed in 2011, the 12,000 sq.ft. Joan and Andy Horner Hall on the campus of Dallas Baptist University was built to support DBU’s creative degree programs for communications, fine arts, and music and audio engineering. Within Horner Hall, RBDG designed a 2,400 sq.ft. recording studio complex that provides DBU students exposure to the full complement of contemporary and traditional production tools found in a fully professional studio suite.

The Music Business Recording Studios is comprised of a main control room, featuring an AVID D-Command ES 24 control surface and a seven-foot wide screen, a tracking studio, and an adjoining isolation booth. Two smaller control rooms each feature an AVID C|24 control surface and are fully integrated with the main control room, yet allow students to mix projects independently.

RBDG’s design incorporated floating floors for sound isolation and technical infrastructure for connectivity and accessibility in the studios spaces and the central equipment room. A powerful communications system links the control room to a separate Mac lab, equipped with the latest Pro Tools technology, enabling students in the lab to view what is being taught in the studio.

                    [post_content] => RBDG designed a 48,000 sq. ft. video, film and audio production facility for Circle R Media (CRM), located on the campus of RadioShack’s corporate headquarters in Fort Worth, Texas. The facility incorporates cutting-edge audio and video production, animation and graphics capabilities, and is the first facility of its kind to receive the LEED® Silver certification.

The technical spaces include three soundstages ranging in size from 2,100 to 3,800 square-feet, nine video/audio edit suites, video and audio production control rooms, audio post production and recording sound booths, a master control room, an engineering lab, a conference room that seats 30, graphics, duplication/replication rooms, tape library and archive, dressing areas, commissary, and office areas.

To meet the LEED requirements, CRM was built using sustainable resources, recycled content and locally supplied. Bamboo flooring was used in the audio and video suites, and the carpets, fabrics and acoustical materials contained high levels of recycled content. CRM’s location exposes the extremely sound-sensitive production studios to noise from the street and major building mechanical systems, so RBDG designed a dual floating-slab system for sound isolation.

Originally developed as a part of RadioShack Corporation, Circle R Media became a fully independent, privately owned production facility in January 2005. The first of its kind in the D/FW Metroplex, the new production facility opened in May 2005.

                    [post_content] => When the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) began planning its relocation from Minneapolis, MN to Charlotte, NC, it was decided that the new facility would include in-house production capabilities. BGEA produces 10 network affiliate prime time specials each year that air in the US and Canada. Evangelistic television programs and training materials are created and distributed worldwide. RBDG was chosen to design the technical spaces to meet the production needs of this international ministry.

Features of the 13,500 sq. ft. production facility with high-definition infrastructure include a Pro Tools audio control room with a dedicated equipment room, a 1,000 sq.ft.live room with 3 isolation booths, 3 Avid Adrenaline editing suites, an Avid Nitris DS editing suite, and a Final Cut Pro editing suite.

BGEA’s 1,100 sq. ft. Video Technical Operations Center has the capacity for 50 equipment racks. The digital broadcast infrastructure includes a Virage/Masstech media asset management system. The new production facility was completed in April 2005.

            [post_content] => Russ Berger Design Group provided acoustical and interior architectural design for the broadcast portion of the new Greenspun College of Urban Affairs (journalism and media studies) at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas. The new facility enables journalism and media studies faculty and students to explore the limits of new technologies and to develop innovative partnerships between traditional and emerging media.

The 28,000 sq. ft. all-digital, high definition broadcast facility includes two television studios, non-linear editing bays, three radio production and performance studios, writing labs, advanced editing labs, a converged media lab, and a 200-seat auditorium built to accommodate video and audio production. UNLV-TV and KUNV-FM are both working broadcast stations that are also used for student instruction.

In keeping with the college’s mission to improve the quality of urban life, Greenspun Hall contains several sustainable design elements, including an energy-conserving photovoltaic array covering the courtyard and a chilled-beam heating and cooling system. The project has earned LEED ® Gold certification.
