International News Presentation: Past and Present

When did France 24 revamp their lower thirds?


Unsure, however I noticed them today. I have to say, they are awful. The previous ones were among my favourite from the international news channels, they were very modern and clean. These new ones seem intrusive and the gradients aren't smooth, they're too brash and tacky.


Indeed , I was shocked when I tuned in to France 24 on 12.4.2012 ( this was the day when they changed the lower third graphics). I really don't understand such a decision of replacing good graphics by messy ones. The graphics used from january 2011 were a lot slicker and modern and the nice animation of the current show has now also been removed.

The French elections are fast approaching, with the first round taking place tomorrow.

Both national broadcasters TF1 and France 2 are beginning their coverage at 18:45.

Here is a photo of France 2's election set, I think everyone will agree, it is amazing! A clever piece of virtual reality with the skyline above. A brilliant set!

That looks great, can't say what's real and what not.

The shot of the Elysee Palace is basically a huge video wall.

The studio itself looks incredible without the virtual images. Me thinks their graphics team put in slighly more effort than ITV did in 2010!

Oh thank god! I thought they'd built a set model of it just for the occasion! Very Happy

Shame it won't be on BBC Parliament like last time (or did BBCP only show the second round last time?).

Wow, that looks great. They didn't even need the virtual graphics, the real set looks superb by itself.

Thanks for this great photo!

I have a technical question: I always thought that a CSO/Chromakey background was necessary for virtual elements to be seamlessly combined with the real elements. In other words, sets usually have green or blue screens in areas where the virtual elements need to be inserted. That doesn't appear to be the case here, yet there is still a clearly defined border between the Elysee Palace video wall and the virtual sky in Joshua's first pic. How do they do that?

That certainly wasn't the case with the 1999 ITV News studio. The title elements at the top of the studio were virtual, but the rest certainly wasn't. It was almost like a split screen effect, and I suspect this is the same.
