Telemundo has a built a $10 million, state-of-the-art studio in Hialeah in preparation for the 2015 FIFA World Cup.

The studio includes a 30-foot video wall, an interactive touchscreen and a 300-fixture LED lighting grid that will reduce energy consumption by 75 percent even while enabling technicians to create nearly any lighting effect, Miami Today, which visited Telemundo’s Hialeah complex on a journalist tour, reported.

Telemundo Media, a subsidiary of NBC Universal, has the exclusive Spanish-language rights in the U.S. to broadcast the World Cup across all platforms except for radio from 2015 until 2022.

“This studio was conceived in Hialeah, built in Hialeah, delivered in Hialeah and will operate in Hialeah,” Jorge Hidalgo, Telemundo’s executive vice president, reportedly said during the tour. [Miami Today]Emily Schmall
