CBS wanted to upgrade their major O&O’s and create a consistent look across the country. After upgrading the number two market in the country, KCBS in Los Angeles, BDI would go on to design other CBS O&O’s. BDI continued this new look with a few custom twists in each market to make it their own. The consistent look included either a (4×3) or a (5×3) 55” LCD video wall directly behind the talent. A (3×3) 55” video wall was designed to be used as backdrop for the sports and special reports anchors from the desk. This video wall also provides transitional camera shots from the co-anchors to standing talent at the display for impressive presentations.
At KOVR along with these displays we added a 16’ foot RGB light box that enabled a RGB green to be used as a large format chroma key. This light box could then be switched to alternate colors when not in use to eliminate chroma key bleeding. In the Weather Center a touch a screen monitor is used in the foreground and there is a working Weather center in the background. All this was done with a clean, contemporary look that featured color changing accents throughout the set for flexibility.
