Dignitas announced the grand opening of a new content and media production facility in Newark that will be dedicated to producing original content dedicated to the “cross-section of gaming, entertainment, music and lifestyle media.”
The 3,000 square-foot facility is adjacent to Prudential Center, the HBSE owned 19,000 seat multi-purpose sports and entertainment arena, and will feature a 500-square foot Content Studio presented by Caffeine TV, equipped with four 4K cameras capable of 4K-quality live broadcast workflow, two soundproof live-streaming and recording pods and fully-stocked café.
The new East Coast training home for Dignitas’ seven teams, including League of Legends, World Champion Rocket League and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive teams, includes a professional gaming space, outfitted with high-end gaming computers, console systems and Dignitas-branded Raynor Gaming chairs.
“This new facility drives to the heart of where Dignitas is moving as a leader in the gaming centric entertainment: with a heavy focus on player excellence, influencer development and content production that will drive key narratives across the confluence of esports, sports, music and pop culture,” said Michael Prindiville, CEO of Dignitas. “Newark is the perfect place to develop the next wave of competitive gamers and entertainers – a notorious hotbed for talent, adjacent to a Top 10 arena in the world, just 15 minutes from midtown Manhattan, and extremely close proximity to East Coast servers, establishing headquarters here was a no-brainer for us.”
