The Atlantic Production Center Relies on Sohonet Exchange for Networking Services During COVID and Beyond

Introduction

Opened January 2020 and forced to shut just three months later, the APC has already hosted a plethora of clients including HBO Max, Netflix and FOX. Sohonet had the pleasure of talking to VP of Operations, Amanda Weisenthal, who reiterated that not only were APC in a prime location and open “24/7 which is very rare for New York” but they understand “exactly what productions need.”

Overview

Spanning 10 floors at 625 Madison Avenue, The Atlantic Production Center (APC) is dedicated to servicing the needs of television, film, and media-related productions of any size. 

Challenge

APC offers a unique opportunity for productions to maintain their entire back office in one place including spaces for production, set dressing and props, wardrobe, and executive suites. As a result, they need to supply and manage internet, networking, wireless and voice solutions. Naturally, each client requires extensive comms.That’s where Sohonet Exchange comes in.

Solution

Sohonet Exchange supplies and manages internet, networking, wireless and voice solutions on behalf APC to its clients. Weisenthal states that the exact needs are met and Sohonet Exchange is  “really proactive in setting up a tailored phone and wifi system  – be it for a day, a week or several months.”

Result

 Going forward, as people are starting to return back to offices and major feature films are being shot in New York again, Weisenthal says “we want you in our space. We will do it in a safe manner and we won’t cut corners.” Furthermore she further states that Sohonet Exchange comprehends the “pace of production which many providers simply do not.”
