Fresno ABC debuts with widescreen LED screens


ABC 30 Action News of Fresno, KFSN, debuted a set by Devlin Design Group featuring expansive LED video walls mixed with pops of blue and white.

As part of ABC-owned television stations, KFSN began work on the new Studio B in January, including updates to the lighting grid with equipment from Brightlines and a new studio floor for Ross Video. CamBots.

“I’ve never seen anything like it in all of central California,” Mike Carr, general manager of ABC 30, noted in a statement.

The set design is built around a gentle curve inside Studio B, with four LED walls strategically positioned on the curve to allow for throwing shots and anchor interaction. The main anchor area features a 20ft video wall with an arched head piece.

“I think the big thing that we’re going to be able to do, from one perspective, is look at all the monitors. You’re going to be able to see the images, the people, the stories that we’re telling, will be that much bigger , all the brighter and all the better.

Featuring a curved LED display, the set’s anchor desk is designed to be used while sitting or standing.


Backlit panels with grayscale graphics add texture throughout, including a simple striped pattern behind the anchor area and faux concrete texture between each area of ​​the set. Opaque acrylic panels break up the background, adding more depth.

The weather area includes a large desk with an LED screen behind it. A secondary display to the right of the weather area is designed to be used in place of a green screen and can also be used with the docking console.

While ABC has a group graphics package in the works, ABC 30 retained its existing on-air look with the set debut.
