Oh, someone mentioned lack of AR of Rockefeller Center on NBC’s broadcast, it turns out the shots were recorded a few days in advance.

Now how does the tracking work? Is it embedded into the video or is there a different mechanism?


There are lots of ways of generating AR tracking data these days - some use scene analysis, some use tracked camera mounts, some use secondary cameras doing scene analysis separate to the camera shooting the scene for broadcast, some use a combination of techniques. Some scenarios require you to 'teach' the system the location you are in prior to shooting, some record data as you shoot, some work entirely based on post-production analysis.

It was recorded but rendered live apparently.

What I hadn’t realised, mainly due to the fact it’s an irrelevance to me since they got rid of any balance and they launched the superior Times Radio product, that News UK’s talkRadio has also dabbled into virtual TV sets. Albeit with a product that looks far inferior to LBC’s offering. In fact it’s a case of where not bothering would have produced a better quality product. Although you’d imagine they’d improve in the future.

You can see the set 3 hours in here. It’s US election coverage hence why this seemed the best place to post it.


Edit: seems to be actual virtual people in the background.

TalkRadio has a very low listenership right? LBC averages nearly 3 million listeners per week. What does TalkRadio get? I know they have just 220,000 YouTube subscribers.

LBC will have more listeners than talkRADIO regardless. The 97.3 FM outlet in London is still where the bulk of their audience is listening, without it, there would be more equal competition on digital platforms.

I am interested to see if talkRADIO is having any impact on the talk radio genre? That was why I was keen on finding out their average ratings, and of course I know now that current figures are impossible due to the pandemic.

talkRADIO does seem to be the closest Rupert Murdoch can have of a news channel in Britain as close to the Fox News type of format, with each anchor delivering their own monologue at the start of their programme.

Hardly a valid comparison between a rolling news channel and a presenter led phone in format

Bumping this thread as CNN are doing special coverage of the Electoral College vote on Monday which forms part of finalising the election result with the A-Team of Wolf, Anderson and Jake from 3pm UK time. Presumably it means that Connect The World won't be on that day and it will be a domestic simulcast all day from there.

I take it US broadcasters show extensive coverage like this every year?

I don’t remember if it warranted coverage before. But I assume this year it will.

Indeed. With Trumps coup attempts it's unlikely to go smoothly.

They'll most likely fail but there probably will be some coup attempts and destructions. We might have to keep an eye on the house and senate in January as well as there are currently lots of Republicans who are trying to overturn the results but ultimately that won't work.

It has always been a long shot but if anyone can do it it would be him. Thankfully the supreme court, which he packed in his favour for this very moment, has pretty much just put the final nail in the coffin. Hopefully.

Appears this started officially at 2pm UK but it's exclusive to domestic for the first two hours before International simulcasts domestic at 4pm.
