Hunan TV is China’s largest provincial television broadcaster and launched its first ever news channel, Hunan News, on October 1, 2020. The new broadcast facility is also the country’s first 4k ultra-high definition news studio.
Provost Studio was selected in 2018 to provide the scenic design vision and oversee fabrication/installation for the studio and newsroom. Provost also provided interior design services and crafted a branded tour route for its special guests and VIPs.
Provost teamed with local Systems Integration partner, AperaX, to provide turn-key scenic design/build services to deliver the project. Spanning over 2 years, the project was a collaborative effort between the client, scenic designer, AV systems integrator and scenic fabrication.
The new 5,000sf studio features 3 main area for content presentation including: main anchor area, social media area and informal discussion area with dramatic entry stair. The studio also employs many large LED displays which allows format flexibility when presenting news content and results in a layered on-air look.
