CenterStaging

CenterStaging is a rehearsal facility specializing in providing production and technical support for television and live performances. Founded by Jan Parent and Johnny Caswell more than 20 years ago, the facility has expanded to become an industry hub for A-list entertainers.

NEP Broadcasting

NEP was founded in 1984 by Tom Shelburne and was formerly associated with WNEP-TV in Wilkes-Barre, Penn., prior to the television station’s sale to The New York Times. For more than 20 years, NEP has been a leading international provider of outsourced remote television production services for many of the world’s largest broadcast events.

Recording Assistant

Recording assistants can work as freelancers or full-time at a studio. The recording assistant’s specific job can vary by studio and is based on the needs of the recording engineer. Typically, this person is tasked with setting up instruments and signal inputs before each recording session, and ensuring that when the recording engineer arrives, she or he can just sit down and mix.

Monitor Engineer

Have you ever tried to carry a tune in a crowded, noisy room, unable to hear yourself? It isn’t easy. Musicians rely on stage monitors (speakers) and in-ear monitors to hear a specifically crafted mix of the vocals and instruments on stage; this keeps them on beat and singers on key. The best seat in the house goes to the monitor engineer, the technician tasked with crafting the artist’s monitor mix. 

Front of House (FOH) Engineer

More than any other person, the FOH engineer controls what the audience hears during a live performance. His or her primary concern is to ensure superior sound quality within the venue. To do that, the engineer must blend together instruments and vocals to achieve a perfectly balanced sound. In essence, the engineer behind the audio console is like a member of the band—and just as important to the audience’s perception. Without the proper mix from the soundboard, the work of the musicians on stage is wasted.
