The FOX News set, located on the 12th floor of FOX News Corp., New York, NY, features an eye-catching, iconic audiovisual element that was introduced into the studio's existing lighting grid: an enormous, monolithic AV cube reminiscent of the FOX logo. It distinguishes the set and reinforces FOX's brand. Each square screen has a 12- by 12-foot surface, which posed challenges in engineering, projector placement, and using a square aspect ratio. In addition to the four-sided, rear-projection AV cube, numerous banks of LCD TVs were introduced, each containing multiple screens and an assortment of plasma screens.
