WDBJ-7 - Roanoke, Virginia
Studio Upgrade

DVG partnered with our friends at FX Design Group on the new news set for WDBJ-7 in Roanoke Va. FX did the set design and lighting and DVG did all the on set technology (monitor walls, studio cameras, processors etc.). NEC X464UNV-2 displays for the 3×3 monitor wall as well as the larger 3×6 wall were utilized. The walls were fed by a TvOne CorioMaster video processor for image manipulation. 3 x Sharp 80″ displays were mounted vertically as well. AJA conversion gear was used throughout this project.

To improve the on air look DVG delivered Hitachi Z-HD6000 studio Cameras. The camera heads are connected via fiber in the studio to the Hitachi CU-HD500 CCU and controlled from RU-1000VR remote panels in master control. Fujinon optics were selected to round out the camera configuration. The Z-HD6000 is engineered to satisfy the highest TV program production standards while satisfying the ever-pressing need to reduce capital equipment costs. The Z-HD6000’s implement  the new 2.6MPixel 2/3-inch MOS RGB sensors that provide Advanced Color correction & Skin tone detail with F12 standard sensitivity and over 60dB of video headroom .
