LAS VEGAS—Telemundo Las Vegas (KBLR) pulled back the curtain on its new media center and studio space earlier this week, which has the distinction of being the first NBCUniversal-owned station to have its news and production infrastructure hosted on a private cloud system.
The 22,000-plus square-foot media center’s cloud system is located at an off-site data technology center in Dallas at KBLR’s sister stations, KXAS/KXTK. In addition to the cloud infrastructure, the new media center features a modern studio design with a 12x7-foot LED array, a new anchor desk, a dedicated weather center, robotic cameras and new production control rooms.
A new piece of equipment brought into KBLR is the Ross Inception Newsroom System, a newsroom tool that improves news gathering and content publishing across multiple platforms, including social media.
Off camera, the redesigned space features an open-space newsroom area with dedicated desk pods for the station’s news team, Wi-Fi access throughout, flex work spaces, phone rooms and more. The stations was also designed to be energy efficient.
KBLR delivers more than 10 hours of live and locally-produced news programming to Southern Nevada’s Hispanic audiences every week.
