The Broadcast Studio Design Project
This broadcast studio design was created by our company in collaboration with Greg Loscar for KDKA in Pittsburg. It’s purpose was to have a secondary (Studio B) area to shoot the news program in, while the main set was being changed. The results are fantastic, if I do say so myself.
The things we used
- Enormous back lit backdrops
- RGB LED tape on the face of the valances (it lights up any color)
- RGB LED puck lighting on the top and bottom of both valances
- Diebond surfaces
- Powdercoated steel surfaces
- Inch thick clear acrylic
- Backlit translucent materials for the desk face and side wall
- Sections of white lacquered three dimensional ‘wave wall’
- The requisite shiny monitors
As per our usual, there was a good bit of time in passing 3d renderings back and forth. Always making changes to look, shape, and size to best fit what the client desires. Once everyone has signed off on it, we start creating it in the shop. We always build the entire set as if it were in the studio, so that any problems that need to be solved are clear. When we’re done, we dismantle the whole thing, crate it up, and ship it out. Depending on budget or need, we send one or two of our people. For this one, we sent four of our team. We installed the set, made sure everything looked great, and made sure the powers-that-be knew what everything was. Another job well done!
