WeltN24 has commissioned two state-of-the-art TV studios for the station WELT at the new Axel Springer Campus in the heart of Berlin. Both news studios are equipped with Ethernet/IP-capable lighting fixtures throughout, enabling IP-end-to-end communication and, therefore, efficient workflows that are fully integrated into the broadcast infrastructure. The ARRI System Group handled the consulting, planning and turnkey installation of the studio lighting and control systems on behalf of the system integrator Qvest Media and in close partnership with the planning office mo2 design. 100 SkyPanels from ARRI, in combination with other luminaries, provide a highly flexible lighting design.
WELT’s two TV studios enable closer networking and collaboration with digital and print. This exchange is also reflected in the visual concept of the studios, each measuring 175 m² (1,938 sq. ft.) and 5.5 m (18 ft.) high. Glass fronts in Studio 1 ensure transparency, visibility, and interaction. Particular challenges in terms of the lighting design were also the motorized and movable LED video panels on three sides and a required minimum range of movement for the presenters on set without changing the lighting fixture positions.
