A chic, high-tech welcome. Modern, sleek, and streamlined, WGBH's 1,340-square-foot Metcalf Lobby creates just the right atmosphere for check-ins and welcomes. Glass and steel mesh with technology to evoke a cutting-edge tone. All WGBH rental spaces are fully accessible to people with disabilities.

Three side-by-side, high-definition monitors—customizable to your event—greet your guests in Metcalf Lobby. Each 40-inch, 1,280- x 720-pixel monitor can be programmed with video or still content that sets the stage for your memorable and distinctive gathering. ()
Enhancing your event are the atrium's projector screen (16'w x 9'h) and digital projection unit, capable of displaying a variety of sources—including custom graphics—for your function. Add to the effect by projecting images onto two huge motorized steel and cement soundstage doors (each 14'h x 12'w) that open to Calderwood Studio. ()
Screenings, presentations, panel discussions, Q&As... WGBH's distinctive, egg-shaped, 200-seat theater, located just off our atrium, will seat your guests in style (with ample legroom). Our giant projection screen (14'h x 25'w) and high-definition projector will showcase your video content to its best advantage. And the acoustics: 5.1 Surround Sound with Dolby E decoding, enhanced by woven wire cloth stretched along the walls. Plus a variety of available lighting options to heighten the experience. ()
MoPix® Rear Window® Captioning and DVS Theatrical® technology—invented right here at WGBH (where captioning and descriptive video were born!)—is on hand for your guests with vision or hearing loss. And of course, seats can be configured to accommodate wheelchairs. ()
Welcome your guests inside the studio where many of their public TV favorites are produced. Calderwood Studio is the perfect location for dinners, cocktail receptions, performances, screenings, video conferences, and other gatherings. With 4,500 square feet with a 21-foot-high lighting grid, the studio offers unlimited options for lighting, sound, and visual effects—even a customizable floor.

Step inside WGBH's Fraser Performance Studio and you know immediately you're in an unusual environment: an intimate setting for recording and a stunning backdrop for your special gathering. Planned by noted architects and acoustic designers Janson Design Group as a venue for the many live performances produced by WGBH, this one-of-a-kind studio invites you in with its warm wood floor and baffling. The acoustics were designed with three main considerations in mind: isolation, absorption, and diffraction. Fraser's spacious feel (52 x 34 feet with a 28-foot ceiling) is augmented by a large window that enhances the studio's light and airy atmosphere. An electronic sun screen and blackout shades can create an altogether different mood.
