ESPN released two renderings of the SEC Network’s studio set in Charlotte, North Carolina. This particular studio is one of two the network plans to utilize this season.
“It was important that the set had its own distinct look and feel, while still maintaining the quality and technology that viewers have come to expect from an ESPN network,” said ESPN’s Stephanie Druley, vice president production, college networks in a statement. “The set is designed to give us three unique environments. It will have touch screen technology and multiple monitors and lighting which can be changed to colors reflective of the 14 different schools. It will be a great new home for the coverage of all of the SEC member institutions and its’ 21 sports.”
“The digital scroll you see is one example of technology providing a cohesive design for a tangible challenge – our desire to have a visual representation of every SEC school at any given time during a telecast” said Robert Toms, ESPN vice president, product enhancements and interactive television in a statement. “We can seamlessly showcase 14 unique brands in a unified fashion, and, should a logo ever need to be updated, we won’t have to tear down the set to make a change.”
The SEC Network debuts August 14th, and you can go to GetSECNetwork to make sure you have it.
