NewscastStudio announces the 2016 Set of the Year award winners

Webcast

Packing a big impact into a small space, the MLB.TV Studio X set from 3C Studio, took home the honors in the Webcast category. The design, which mixed backlit panels, metal grids and sharp, dramatic diagonals, manages to maintain a simple design that “reads” well on smaller screens. Built-in color changing elements give the space added flexibility.

Special Event

In a year that packed in both the summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro and a pivotal presidential election, the special event category was packed with designs for coverage of both events — but it was NBC’s design for the Olympics from HD Studio that came out on top. The vibrant design combines references to Brazlian architecture and geography and used a wide range of materials to create an ecclectic but sleek look.
