Telemundo Puerto Rico refreshes look, adds augmented weather
The new set adds metallic surfaces, cuts back on wood tones and simplified backlit background elements, creating a simplified look that brings it more in line with other Telemundo sets.
The updated look includes a revamped anchor area with 2×2 nearly seamless video panel area behind it, replacing the smaller, chunkier, units that the area featured previously.
The anchor desk itself now features two L-shaped metallic and internally lit structures on each end with a backlit front accented with thick rectangular metallic accents.
The set also retained its multiple flexible standup areas, each with a flat panel monitor.
Another common theme is solid backlit panels and wall segments replacing the more colorful printed backgrounds found on the set previously, as shown in this “before” image:
In addition to the set overhaul, the station has also added augmented reality weather graphics.
The graphics are used mainly on the weather center’s large curved riser, which creates a “stage” of sorts for the floating weather maps and graphics, while also keeping the area’s multiple on-set monitors visible.
