Now celebrating its fourth season as the television home of the Los Angeles Lakers, Time Warner Cable SportsNet recently unveiled a refreshed studio home for such shows as #Lakeshow and Access SportsNet: Lakers.

After taking on the first half of its planned studio upgrades during last season’s All-Star break, TWC SportsNet completed the transformation during the offseason in time for the team’s regular-season tipoff on Oct. 28. The network emphasized video-display technology during the latter phase of the upgrades, installing an eye-popping 23- x 7-ft. Leyard USA curved LED display with 1.6-mm pixel pitch.

TWC SportsNet worked with Leyard USA and Diversified Systems to design a display that follows the 3-degree arc of the studio. The network is in the process of installing Viz Multiplay to integrate with its existing Viz Libero technology.

“Most important, we can really take advantage of the extremely high resolution of this wall,” says Peter Bothe, director, studio operations, Time Warner Cable SportsNet. “We broadcast in 1080i, but we natively push high-resolution content into the video wall, and many different sources at once really enhances our production value and further allows our on-air talent and analysts to deliver better programming for our Lakers fans.”
