AV Design Services worked with the engineering team at ABC Times Square Studios to design and install a new Production Control Room (B). AVDS determined that the existing display technology in the aging control room needed to be upgraded to include current, state-of-the art equipment and technology. Everything was removed including projection and dated cube displays, and installed was an entire new replacement system, custom designed to fit the space. All display panels were replaced using the latest LCD/LED-based display technology. A custom fabricated extruded aluminum stand was installed to support a precision monitor wall along with the corresponding components, custom cladding and accessories.
Factors critical to the project included minimizing downtime for the television studio, improving production functionality, emphasizing performance, and incorporating ease-of-use solutions along with attractive aesthetics.
The AVDS team delivered the system on time and on budget, meeting the client’s logistical requirements and technical specifications.
