Indianapolis station gets $1.5 million makeover

Flanking the anchor corner are two freestanding framed structures that enclose a myriad of video panels, including a large one used for standups and weather reports.

A smaller panel array on the opposite side of the studio is often used for traffic and is topped with an additional header video ribbon.

This ribbon continues to a corner that serves as a weather center, complete with an OTS panel and typographic “Storm Track 8” collage.

In addition, the new studio, which also received a lighting upgrade and robotic cameras, features a sofa area with video wall and traditional chroma key wall.

The design was handled in-house by Nexstar with AV integration and support from Digital Video Group, including new Hitachi studio cameras and Phillips monitors for the video walls. Scott Weaver with Lighting Electric and Grid Systems Inc. handled the lighting.
