CNN has joined some of the other major television networks covering the White House in upgrading its equipment to be a bit more environmentally friendly.
Located on a raised platform along the west edge of the North Lawn are a row of television cameras and stalls where reporters go on TV with the White House in the background. CNN recently installed new Nila brand LED lighting instruments at its location to help illuminate on-air talent when they’re live from the White House North Lawn.
The new lights are bright enough while drawing far less energy than the old HMI (Hydrargyrum medium-arc iodide) lights that were used at the White House for over 20 years.
So next time you see Jessica Yellin, Dan Lothian or Briana Keilar live from the White House you'll now know what they're looking at.
