Meet The Press officially launched their new studio at 400 Capitol NW. I asked the TD and he said the entire facility (as expected) is IP and UHD ready. Hopefully the videos not geoblocked.
NBC does top quality everything for the most part. The lighting is their claim to fame. It ALWAYS looks top quality and it can help any dogs dinner set. This set is definitely not my favourite. Its out of character for NBC News. BUT its presented very well. NBC always does a great job of mixing in modern set pieces into heritage spaces. (A prime example on this set is the blood red Queen Anne style anchor desk, with inset backlit logo in white and the clear plexiglass top). The main NBC newsroom at 30 Rock is prime example of that. With its exposed brick and modern elements.
This set re-created an old timey look. That's probably what I dont like about it. It was unnecessary. They could have and should have gone modern. But for what it is, it looks brilliant. Its bright, even though its a dark-ish blue. The video walls look great and not washed out like SkyNews. (They need to get some lighting people over to the UK to fix that or swap out those videowalls.) The MTP set It has that NBC News sparkle (hard to explain). But you know its NBC. While its certainly not something I expect from NBC, for any other broadcaster its very well done.
