The new studio is growing on me. Looks a bit like a cool bar or nightclub.

So where is the window on the Newsnight studio? A, B, C or D?

Well we know it's the 5th floor. The one above A?
Write that down in your copybook now.

A is the fifth floor. And the windows are the correct size so it must be A

The biggest loss from B is losing the continuous video wall - if that could make it's way over to E it would be great.


Do they make a 48:9 290" display to fill the gap left by the old 103" displays?


Sure by using LED tiles. Some are already in 16:9 format. But a video-wall of that suze would be long.


Well yes, but that's not nearly as ridiculous.

It is A, and just to confuse matters there's no real first floor in Peel Wing. Lifts go from 0 to 2. D is the second floor (!)

As many posters have noted, the new set does retain a lot of the design features of Studio B - which is one of the interesting things about the 2013 look - B has had far more influence on regional and WS set design than C or E, despite B rarely being used for news bulletins.

Not once the schedule reverts to it starting at 10.30.

Could Persian use 44D, where it was for a while during 54D's refit? Or Newsnight from A?

Studio A also appears to be mothballed with it's only regular output currently coming from elsewhere (a tiny greenscreen studio with one fixed camera in the case of Newswatch). At the very least I'd have thought BBC London could get away with using such a studio for their late bulletin which would free up D for Persian.


Studio A being permanently out of action would be no loss in my book. In seven years, I don't think I've seen anything from it that I would describe as 'good'. The quality of the BBC's VR is massively behind ITV's - the standard news set being particularly poor.


BBC Sport seem to do VR quite actually for the generic football set - certainly far better than BBC News does. Maybe the news department should get some pointers from the Sports team.

Not to get off topic but which is the better virtual studio engine? I know The Weather Channel uses the latest from Zero Density? Are the most recent versions up to date and similar to one another?
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

at the risk of massively derailing this topic, I've been using unreal engine for a (much lower tech!) virtual studio for my zoom calls and it's been working really well! (not sure my long-suffering colleagues would agree)

although yes it would have a bit more potential if it wasn't a locked-off camera in my bedroom 😊

You use that at work? What industry do you work in?

it’s maybe a little less conspicuous if you work for BBC News 😉
