Do you have sound isolation rooms? It looks like a very open architecture, how many conference rooms did you build?
When I was at CBS in Houston, like most news rooms the producers desks were wide open, then there were edit bays, some what like half cubicles, it seems like in the best of situations, the edit bays would be isolated, and use software similar to twitter to keep people tied in. Often the general WALA of the newsroom is somewhat distracting. In the current age news makers, need to be familiarized with remote communication while in office, so that there is no disparity when live coverage is required. Editors, Writers, are more often also camera and sound operators in the field, this is exemplified in how many news papers have started to carry video in their web-sites, as tablets proliferate the division between written and video/ photo content is melting. Of course I’m probably saying what you’re already preparing for.
Great content, and low bandwidth with high frequency of production is definitely a key to success over high value high bandwidth low frequency of production.
