The Columbia Broadcasting System recently inaugurated television program service from its new Hollywood Television City headquarters. The engineering and architectural design of this modem television broadcasting plant is based upon a flexible and expansible master plan that provides for the ultimate construction of 24 studio units. The initial construction phase now completed provides two audience and two nonaudience studios, each exceeding one-quarter acre in area, together with the necessary technical, production, scenery construction, and office facilities to completely support CBS-Hollywood television operations. This paper describes the philosophy underlying the design of the video, audio, and communication facilities for this project. Emphasis is placed on description of methods and features that are new or novel.
