A television studio, also called a television production studio, is an installation room in which video productions take place, either for the recording of live television to video tape, or for the acquisition of raw footage for post-production. The design of a studio is similar to, and derived from, movie studios, with a few amendments for the special requirements of television production. A professional television studio generally has several rooms, which are kept separate for noise and practicality reasons. These rooms are connected via intercom, and personnel will be divided among these workplaces.

Main article: Production control room
The production control room is the place in a television studio in
which the composition of the outgoing program takes place. The
production control room is occasionally also called a studio control
room (SCR) or a "gallery" – the latter name comes from the
original placement of the director on an ornately carved bridge
spanning the BBC's first studio at Alexandra Palace, which was once
referred to as like a minstrels' gallery.

The master control room in a US television station is the place where the on-air signal is controlled. It may include controls to playout television programs and television commercials, switch local or television network feeds, record satellite feeds and monitor the transmitter(s), or these items may be in an adjacent equipment rack room. The term "studio" usually refers to a place where a particular local program is originated. If the program is broadcast live, the signal goes from the PCR to MCR and then out to the transmitter.
