YouTube Space London
Kings Cross, London
Multi-studio space in the lively Kings Cross area of the UK’s capital.
Three studios offering YouTube’s top creators and influencers a vibrant community, an imaginative workspace and well-equipped environment to encourage the production of more high-quality material.
Two FLX lighting consoles, four SCD Servers and a ZerOS Wing provide a multifunctional package to control lighting within each studio independently as well as from a central control room.
Specifier Peter Daffarn, from Projects Department, explained “We knew Zero 88 would give us all the flexibility needed for this project. Zero 88’s compact design also makes it appealing as control room desk space is prime real estate!”
Projects Department Ltd (PDL) specified and installed two Zero 88 FLX lighting control consoles, four SCD Servers and a ZerOS Wing for YouTube’s Space London facility in the lively Kings Cross area of the UK’s capital.
Projects Department, led by Peter Daffarn, is an independent company specialising in a wide range of technical services for assorted entertainment lighting industry sectors including broadcast, and is well known for its adaptable and lateral thinking approach.
The three main studios at Space London are available for YouTube’s top creators and influencers – those with 10,000+ subscribers to their channels – to use for content creation and other related endeavours, offering a vibrant community, an imaginative workspace and well-equipped environment to encourage the production of more high-quality material.
When they needed a multifunctional lighting control package for the studios, PDL was contacted by broadcast consultant David Errock and initially taken on to offer production lighting expertise to the YouTube design team. This included Chris Lock, then YouTube’s engineering lead and his number two, David Livett.
