I'd actually forgotten quite how bad that clip was! My main takeaway, however, was the ever-professionalism of Jeremy Thompson. Adam was putting him in an awful position in acting that way - being forced to defend his colleague despite behaving like that on air is not an enviable situation. A great shame we've not seen Jeremy anywhere since leaving Sky.

Absolutely disgusting behaviour, why was he not fired?


You think that's bad, try this... He doesn't even have the professionalism to keep it together ON air >>

Is it me or does Adam tonight not sound that well? His voice is a bit croaky and laboured?

Is the ultra wide screen Ed Conway at a virtual screen or a real one? It looks real? Have to say that having such a big wide screen like that works really well, it's very sharp and excellent quality.

The virtual graphics for the White House look really good as well and have depth even though they're flat in reality, and they're much higher quality than other stuff we've seen on a virtual screen.

What it does show is that what having a big studio would be able to achieve rather than the glass box, but it's good they're using the big space again for this, far better than it would have been in smaller studio.

The ultrawide screen is real, yes.

Sky News seem to have an abundance of big flashy screens all over the place. Would something like this just be hired in or is it theirs?

It's Anna Valley kit being hired in for Ed Conway's big screen based on the flight cases lurking downstairs in Sky Central. I believe that AV also installed the big screens for Studio 21, Studio 6 and Millbank but don't quote me on that!

Potential new live bug being used on the split screens. Now lower case with different gradient. Old live bug in caps still in the top right corner when it cuts to full screen though. Lower thirds almost double height since 10pm last night. Guessing this is for the results only? Still no appearance of the new logo on screen though

Don’t know too much about the technical aspect but I presume they use different software for election graphics? The name strap animates up in the same way it did for the UK election for example, and there is a hell of a lot more in the way of full screen slides etc. I don’t think it necessarily means that’s what any potential new graphics would look like (although I think they may have a similar style, eg fonts etc).

No, both the regular output and the election use the same graphics platform - Vizrt. Different galleries have different engines, some are linked for automation and some are not. However, they use different underlying graphics packages, in the same way that the Sky Sports graphics package for Premier League is different to the one for F1.

Out of interest, currently we're seeing a PMQ's strap (with the election count-up on the left) going out on the channel.

A normal Live wipe going into it, and a change at some point overnight to sentence case on the name straps
