Sinclair Broadcast Group has contracted Devlin Design Group (DDG) to create scenic design to support a complete HD conversion of its 14 news stations. The transition to HD news will be completed over the next three years.
Sinclair selected the Devlin Design Group to create the HD sets in part because of its extensive HD experience, according to Mark Nadeau, senior director of the Sinclair Broadcast Group.
Devlin Design Group has created HD scenic designs for broadcasters worldwide, including WRAL-TV in Raleigh-Durham, NC. The first two Sinclair stations to make the HD transition will be WSYX-TV in Columbus, OH, and WBFF-TV in Baltimore. Both are set for a May HD launch.
