Grand Rapids’ WOOD Upgrades Look

WOOD, the NBC affiliate in Grand Rapids Michigan, unveiled a sleek new set this week.

Designed by FX Design Group, the set was a year in planning and features the use of bold color graphics and a massive wall of monitors featuring 16 55″ flat screens.  The monitors can be fed as a whole or by single feeds.

Newscast Studio has a brief explanation and pictures of the design on their site.  Click here to view.  WOOD’s website also features both a retrospective of the station’s sets over fifty years and a gallery of their new set.  Click here to see the 50 year retrospectiveClick here to view the new set gallery.  You can also watch a video walk through with WOOD anchors and a shot of the monitor wall after the jump.
