Coverage of Sunday's European Parliament elections from Denmark's DR. DR constructed an election set, which they'll use again early next month for national parliamentary elections.

Note the screen that gets used to interactively play around with the results (around 6:40 in the clip) - with the effect that the presenter is drawing on the viewer's TV screen!

That looks pretty complex to do. I wonder if there’s translucent smart glass in front of him. I also noticed there was no black on the screen while drawing. In some of the see through displays the color black renders the screen transparent.

Edit : There is black I thought it was grey. Does anyone know of any graphics software that would enable this? It looks like he’s pressing some sort of screen as the finger is evenly pressed (not jutting out at different lengths) against something.

It's a transparent OLED screen. From what I understand, the presenter sees the graphics on his side of the screen, and then there's another graphics system that generates the graphics that the viewer sees. That means (among other things) that the presenter doesn't have to try and read text back to front - though maps are mirrored, so that he's pointing at the right spot for viewers.

DR put out a press release (in Danish) which gives a bit more detail.

That’s fascinating especially the inversion of the country on Ash’s map explains how some of the circles look odd. I would like to know how his side doesn’t show through the other side (the one or two clear monitors I’ve seen in person you can part of the image on the other side but it’s been a while).

And now a compilation of clips from Denmark's TV2 and TV2 News on EP election day.

The first part of the clip shows morning news coverage from TV2's temporary election studio outside the parliament building, Christiansborg. (Much of TV2 News' programming has relocated there given the national election campaign that's also underway.) Election night coverage itself was hosted from inside Christiansborg, where several political parties hosted their election night festivities.

Lovely graphics from Denmark's DR tonight for the general election. Something that looks very contemporary and different.

Probably was seen during the live stream of 9 News’ federal election result. But I just saw this and it seems a bit classless to me...

9 News has done this style of using bizarre objects to represent MPs getting booted from Parliament....including an actual boot and sharks

Video compilation of DR's parliamentary election coverage. Includes (from around 6.05) a clip of the party leader "debate" that takes place on election night itself - jointly hosted by DR and TV 2 (one presenter each) on the floor of the parliamentary chamber. The post-election debate takes place once all the results are counted -- this year, it got underway around 1am.


EDIT: Video online again

Yes, something that we'd consider quite extraordinary in the UK -- political leaders effectively debating who would make up the next government live on national television.

Something we'd also find quite odd -- the two pundits in the Valgcenter are Denmark's last two prime ministers, just casually discussing the results!

I'm also a big fan of the DR election graphics -- UK television seems quite shy of having small text on screen, so we tend to compromise with tickers and flippers (Sky News' general election coverage does cram quite a bit on screen, but it's nowhere near as elegant).
