Not sure if it's worth separating this from the CNN Intenrational thread, happy to delete it if it's unnecessary.
Anyway, CNN U.S is readying its new Washington DC set. It's set to debut following the conclusion of the DNC this week.
WASHINGTON: The political conventions are barely a blur in the rearview mirror, the attack ads are in even heavier rotation than usual and those all-knowing pundits are more righteous than ever.
In other words, it’s time to elect a president again.
And it could hardly be a better time for CNN’s D.C. Bureau to debut its new, 2,200-square-foot HD studio. Featuring three large video walls and two “magic walls,” plus a glass divider to create two smaller studios, the new digs were constructed to accommodate various configurations and programming that is being produced for countries around the globe, all at once.
That’s the big news at CNN Washington bureau today, as its nearly 18 months-in-the-making, state-of-theart HD studio is getting a final few tweaks before it’s unveiled for the masses—just as the presidential race between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney shifts into fifth gear.
Come November, the focus of the world will be on D.C., so the cable news provider, which operates two dozen branded networks and services worldwide will need the versatility that will result in various configurations at what is known as Studio A/B.
