WXTV’s existing 1,800 square-foot set has been redesigned to accommodate new technology that also reduces power consumption and enhances the storytelling experience. It includes a 24-foot long, wall to ceiling, curved monitor wall and a larger Chroma wall to magnify weather maps, animations and enhance the artwork of daily forecasts within the daily meteorology reports.
Comcast-NBCU wanted to improve the quality of the workplace at its New England Cable news regional network, as well as freshen up its look. So last fall, it began updating every aspect of the sets and technology for its newsrooms and 1,800-square-foot studio in suburban Boston. What it got is a state-of-the-art, modern, appealing, multifunctional studio from John Casey and Sacks Exhibits.
