Has anyone noticed that the ticker turns full red now during breaking news headlines and reverts back when they go to business. Before it seemed the red ticker matched the breaking news red lower third only on domestic simulcasts.
The “overly red” ticker is generated by Red Bee pres (and probably have covered the studio generated ticker). If you pay attention closely to Sport Today and Asia Business Report on BBC World News (which is handled by the Red Bee Playout), the ticker/strap color is “extra red” than the regular tickers.
Under normal circumstances, Red Bee Pres would not generate the ticker and strap during TOTH
live broadcasts since the studio gallery would be responsible for handling the ticker. However, if there are programming changes (such as today’s extended newscasts due to the breaking events), Red Bee Pres may accidentally generate their own ticker, covering the studio gallery generated ticker. In this case, you may noticed the strap will not be removed even when the DOG
(BBC World News logo) shows up during the titles and outros of live broadcasts...
