Extensive Brightline Complement Produces Balanced Look for Sinclair Broadcast Group’s WCIV-TV Redesigned Studio
“With lighting being such a major part of the project, partnering with Brightline is always a win.”
A complete Brightline studio lighting package was selected by Sinclair Broadcast Group station, ABC-affiliate WCIV, for its recent facility redesign in Charleston, SC.
Mark Nadeau, Director of TV Production and Eric Castagne, Assistant Director of TV Production for Sinclair Broadcasting Group, successfully completed the project design and execution of the extensive WCIV studio rebuild.
The project entailed the integration of several large components:
- New floor surface
- Design of set and lighting plan
- Construction of multiple set areas with internal color changing
- Large, high-resolution LED screens and video displays
- Lighting and control system
“With large, dynamic LED screens like we have at WCIV,” said Nadeau, “you need lighting that will easily balance between flesh tones, set color and the LED wall. Being able to set up lighting from the start exactly as we need has made it easier to produce a balanced, consistent look. With lighting being such a major part of the project, partnering with Brightline is always a win.”
The Brightline complement used throughout the WCIV studio lights an expansive set that showcases locally originated shows. The main set features a large LED wall with stand-up positions for anchors, a weather center, and a key wall. The multi-purpose set on the opposite side of the studio will host guest interviews, special programming, and cooking segments with color-changing, rear illuminated RGBW walls capable of preset transitions for day to nighttime.
