A small studio with huge flexibility for One America, a cable news channel with its flagship newscasts airing from 7:00 AM till 8:00 PM.

The studio was located on the second floor in a nontraditional location with lower ceiling heights so the challenge was to get as much depth and flexibility as possible.

BDI chose to use a combination of hi-definition video, low-resolution LED video and RGB LED lighting to provide the kind of flexibility needed to change looks in color and video content throughout the day. This is a good example of new LED technology and hi-resolution plasma video combined to offer changeable backgrounds as needed.

Various shooting angles with a dual sided anchor desk and an interview area round out this small studio that offers a ton of flexibility.
