Provost Studio Wins Newscast Studio 2015 “Set of the Year”

Chicago Magazine & RedEye Magazine Set Best in Web-cast Category


LAS VEGAS, NV (April 18, 2016) – Provost Studio has been awarded the 2015 Set of the
Year Award in the Web-cast category by NewscastStudio at this year’s annual NAB Show for the design of the Chicago Magazine & RedEye Magazine Studio.

This is the second year in a row that Provost Studio has been nominated for a
NewscastStudio Set of the Year Award but the first however, to bring home the accolade in the competition’s newest “Web-cast” category.

The creation of this category is testament to the broadcast industry’s shift toward wed-based programming and Provost Studio is quickly establishing itself as a leading creative professional within this emerging field of broadcast set design. Other web-cast studios designed by Provost Studio include the Chicago Tribune Media Group’s Hoy Magazine, ARISE News and ACORD News.

The winning set’s primary design challenge was to express two brands in one space. Flexibility and creative out-of-the-box thinking were paramount in successfully delivering on this challenge.

“The main design challenge was to create an scenic environment that accommodates two brands with distinctly different audiences,” says Peter Provost. “And, therefore, two different aesthetic and functional expressions of those brands.”

Conceptually, the resulting set design is like a scenic “Swiss Army knife”. Provost Studio designed the set elements to be interchangeable, re-configurable and adaptable. This allows the studio to convert back-and-forth from one brand to another. The new studio’s key design features include:

  • Sliding and pivoting wall panels allow quick scene changes
  • Elements, like tables and carts, transform to reflect each brand
  • Dramatic, color-changing LED lighting
  • Large-format display monitors for brand specific dynamic media content
