So the lighting tests are done and the sets were cleaned now 1 month of rehearsals and mock newscasts begin.
The upstairs news room set and interview area looks great. And the texture lighting on the floor looks great. Thankfully Nextstar spent the extra money to have it lit nicely. No sense in spending loads of money on a great set just to have an amatuer/in-house team blast in white cold light.
Long curved video wall in the newsroom set behind the digital news desk. Amazing overhead shot of the Chicago Loop/River with the Sears Tower featured. Touchscreen off to the right.
This is the digital desk. This will be used when breaking news happens and they are not using the large main studio downstairs. Additionally it was noted that the position at the desk that is directly behind the photographer, allows for full control. That touchscreen at the desk allows the user to fully operate the digital (online) broadcast at any time. So they can go live in minutes. So it can control the lights, the cameras, on screen graphics, videos, live shots...they say virtually anything needed to broadcast live all controlled by one person. That will be interesting.
Another view of the digital desk. The control position is at the back of the desk on the left. You can see the white touchscreen poking up.
