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 (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. Along with these video canvases a comfortable interview set was designed with custom plex shelving as the backdrop to feature nostalgic elements to showcase the long successful history of CBS Broadcasting.

At WJZ,  BDI added a glassed in on-air green room that provides guests a comfortable area to relax before being introduced onto the set. We added a new Weather Center with an 80” touch screen monitor and a 65” vertical monitor for traffic and social media. A video tower between the anchor desk and weather center was added for showcasing additional information. All of this was done with a clean, contemporary look that featured color changing accents throughout the set for flexibility.
