This is the playout area for a well known International TV network.
The facility currently hosts 57 channels (48 live playlists and 9 delay feeds) that cater for the whole of Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

I was trying to shoot it in order to provide some PR shots for the said Newtork and this is a preliminary test shot.
The facility itself is actually remarkably hard to shoot given it’s size and lack of light, resulting in a rather painful trade off between aperture, exposure and ISO.
I was shooting with a 400D which doesn’t really deal with low light particularly well as anything shot on higher than ISO 400 is pretty much unusable. Pairing this I had only brought the Sigma 10-20mm F4-5.6 lens which is not a lens known for its sharp results.
