KTRK ABC 13 Has a New Set


Recommended Posts

Is it just me, or does it look like they cranked up the resolution on the cameras in the studio as well?

It's probably new lighting. Every time a TV station gets a new set it also gets a new lighting design.

The places I've worked for have always brought in lighting designers from LA that also work on movies because the right lighting makes all the difference. Also, it's very difficult to do right. Especially if in a large market where you have anchors with varying skin shades all using the same anchor desk from one show to the next. It's even harder when you have a black anchor sitting next to a white anchor, or a tall anchor next to a short anchor that the furniture can't compensate for, though technology has made the black/white thing a little easier. Each show, each anchor pair, will have its own lighting design.

Lighting is a big reason why so many second- and third-tier stations look so different from the big ones. They try to cut costs and convince themselves that anyone can do lighting. They can't.

Here are some pictures of the new Set and Weather Center.

From ABC 13

Over the past couple of weeks we've been moving into a new weather center. You'll see it when you watch 13 Eyewitness News, along with new areas for news and sports. The company that built our new set said this is one of the biggest projects they've worked on.
