Dallas CBS Station Unveils New Set

ktvt_set_1Dallas CBS owned station KTVT debuted its new set this week.

Here are the specs from KTVT:

-Most of the surface area of the set is comprised of backlit graphics framed by headers that seem to float in midair without a visible means of support.
-There is an estimated eighth of a mile of LED light strips which can change color.
-The center wall in the anchor area features a custom-built, six-roller, automated graphics display system. Roughly 19 feet wide, it weighs over half a ton, and is concealed in a 5-1/2 inch space, so it won’t cast shadows on the backlit graphics.
-This set also incorporates a rear projection display unit with a 128-inch (diagonal) display measurement. This unit uses a high-powered projector in conjunction with a mirror bounce assembly to obtain the proper projection distance in a space that would otherwise be insufficient.
-The set is 12’ tall, with an extra-tall 10’ green screen (most are 8’).

You can see a small gallery of set shots after the jump.
