Filming for the next series of Dragons’ Den has just been completed at the Old Granada Studios in Manchester.

First launched in Japan, Dragons’ Den is now an international brand with versions airing in countries across the globe. The format sees budding entrepreneurs enter the Den to pitch for investment from the Dragons – five venture capitalists willing to invest their own money in exchange for equity.

To record the show, HyperActive worked alongside post-production partner The Farm, which operates in 23,000 sq ft of fantastic post space adjoining the Old Granada Studios site.

HyperActive provided specialist EVS XDCam recording workflows, allowing a total of 14 streams to be recorded using two EVS XT3s, four XTAccess transfer engines and 120Tb+ of Avid storage.
