Hungarian network TV2 debuts new overall look for newscast

TV2, a Hungarian broadcaster, rolled out a revamped set design and motion graphics package Sunday for its main news program, “Tények.”

The scenic design, which shares similarities to ARD’s “Tagesschau” and Chilevisión’s recently launched studio, features a 42’x8′ curved video wall of LED microtiles behind the main anchor desk.

The matte desk is lit from the gentle glow of a lightbox on the floor and features lighting in its top as well.

“All the elements of the broadcast – including the set and the content – are the result of careful planning, with international trends followed,” notes the TV2 news director in a translated release. “The audience, more than ever, is expecting spectacular visual elements to help you navigate.”

Edge lighting helps separate the video wall from the riser, which uses a slatted wood texture on the floor with bold red backlit panels along its edges.

Overall, the new design is a modern upgrade for the network, which plans to utilize the set for more standups and interviews than the previous design allowed.
