News 12 Long Island updates studio with more technology

News 12 Long Island, one of Cablevision’s 24-hour rolling news networks, debuted an updated set Monday, as well as a new program.

The set swapped a large graphic behind the main anchor desk for a 6×3 monitor array from AV Design Services, which featured an animated map graphic with large text.

James Yates Production Design worked to update and expand the set, with blackwalnut providing fabrication.
