The Studio

The News Deck is a brand new signature studio designed for Shep and his dedicated team of producers and information specialists. It's the command center for breaking news and uses state-of-the-art technology to fuse incoming news feeds to digital and social media. The News Deck can interrupt all programming at a moment's notice to bring viewers news as it happens.

BATs (Big Area Touchscreens)

55-Inch Touchscreen computers staffed by information specialists and producers. Information specialists can draw upon live feeds, video, maps, news wires, tweets, Facebook posts, you name it... and put it all on air at a moment's notice. The News Deck has 9 staff BATs.

Shep's Desk (BAT 10)

Shep's Personal Computer has technology designed specifically for Shep that lets him control every monitor and computer on the News Deck, including all the other BATs. Shep can take control of any information specialist's workstation during breaking news, and update whatever project the information specialist is working on in real time. This makes the News Deck a true collaboration in newsgathering.

Monster

A 38-Foot Video Wall that serves as a primary backdrop for the News Deck. Shep can move pictures or video around Monster with a remote control, which you may have seen in the daily slideshow. INSIDER INFO: Shep likes to call it "Monster" not "The Monster."

The Ribbon

The Ribbon is a string of monitors suspended from the ceiling, above the News Deck. Look here for up-to-the-second information. In those monitors you'll find all the major stories the information specialists are currently tracking, including our first look at videos, photos, news feeds, weather forecasts, and stock prices.

The Wall

The Wall is an enormous floor-to-ceiling grid of monitors that can route multiple live and pre-taped video feeds, as well as graphics including maps and charts. It's also our virtual window outside FNC Studios in New York City - you can see Radio City Music Hall up the street, thanks to cameras providing a live feed from our building.

Window to the control room

The Window gives a live look at the Fox New Channel's control room 8. The live stream comes from a camera mounted on the ceiling, in the back of the control room. It shows Shep's producers as they work to put together the show and stay on top of breaking news.
