ABOUT CBC & THE GOODS
The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, branded as CBC/Radio-Canada, is a Canadian crown corporation that serves as the national public radio and television broadcaster. It is the oldest existing broadcasting network in Canada.
The Goods is a Canadian daytime television talk show on CBC Television which debuted October 3, 2016. Formatted as a lifestyle show, each of the hosts specializes in a different subject area – lifestyle, food, relationships, and home and design.
CBC selected Advanced to install an attention-grabbing set with cutting edge displays. The dazzling set is comprised of multiple NEC X555UNV video walls including a 2×8 main wall display, a 1×6 display, and three single displays that are used throughout each broadcast.
THE ADVANCED SOLUTION
NEC X55UNV was chosen because it was necessary for the studio cameras to be able to seamlessly capture the displays from tight angles in the studio without a moiré effect — the visual perception that often creates “fuzzy” lines while trying to capture a screen on camera.
All of the set’s displays were installed in portrait orientation throughout the studio in varying sizes for different purposes. The main display, which is a portrait made up of a 2×8 panel configuration, serves as a backsplash to the main table and chairs set, with relevant graphics, images and videos played throughout the talk show accordingly.
Another 1×6 panel display is used during the cooking segments of the show, which is filmed in a separate section of the set.
Despite the extensiveness of the project, the hardware installation was completed in record-breaking time. By utilizing Advanced’s custom designed and fabricated mounting system specifically tailored for studio environments.
