The bumpers are now run with quite clever technology that enables their length to be dynamic. You select the 'key shots' and times, and it will cut together the sequence for the exact duration you need.

It maintains editorial control of the content, but allows a presentation or playout person to adjust duration and enable things to be hit exact to schedule.

Has anyone noticed anything out of studio b now has a 1px white border around the picture, the lower thirds must be added later on in the stream as it appears above the white border. You won't be able to see it unless you got your TV set to output all 1920x1080 pixels.

Almost sounds like the video output is keyed on top of a full screen graphic. I've noticed the same thing when a local station here gets ready to do a credit squeeze to tease the upcoming newscasts. I see it during the last block of the program when I assume the playout server is routed through the news switcher. All of the sudden you see a tiny blue border around the picture that moves.

That'll be tied in with the object-based broadcasting thing BBC R&D are doing. Re-versioning shows from their constituent parts.

Maybe, I'm just guessing...

It looks like the border is now gone.

I mentioned a while back regarding the lack of closed captioning (subtitling I think you call it) on World News in the US. Well it appears that many of the prerecorded programs such as Hardtalk and their documentaries (not sure how to classify the weekend program's) are now captioned. It's not much but it's a start.

I did notice there was one flub when Hardtalk (the 0430 GMT airing 2330 ET) was airing around the first week of the year aired the captions for a different program. I believe the program was about one of the women who exposed the Russian doping. It wasn't a big deal compared to when a CBS programs closed captions were replaced with ones from a live broadcast of Real Time with Bill Maher where F bombs were flying.

I do not have any hearing impairments but having closed captioning is nice especially on an international channel where some people have heavy accents. Additionally it's helpful when your watching late at night and don't want to disturb anyone else.

Brief look around of Studio C from Aaron. Don't touch anything. Laughing

Looks really great shot in portrait...............


I liked the 'how do I turn it off' at end. I find it hard to believe Aaron didn't know what OS stood for, especially as there's a show on the channel called Outside Source, abbreviated as OS. Laughing
