Before TV Azteca, in Mexico, moved into their new set, they were broadcasting their newscasts from temporary sets, virtually identical to their previous ones. The emphasis on "virtually" isn't for no reason, notice the sharper-than-usual screens.

News intros don't get more fast-paced and dramatic than this 1977 American example -- at the 2:45 mark (w/ an interesting glimpse at 1970s ENG technology to boot):

I know they love them in Germany, but those chromakey sets....oooof! Thats a hard no from me.


That to me is a virtual studio setup, not a chromakey setup, cos the background moves in relation to the camera, rather than being static.

I admit, I don't particularly like the RTL2 set, but ARDs set is so much better.

The pedestal they have seems incredibly awkward and the newscast seems really casual. Are they going for a young audience?
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

I think RTL II is a channel aimed at a younger demographic, so I guess they are.

Since the move the news are produced by InfoNetwork, which is also the news provider for the other channels within the RTL Network in Germany (RTL, n-tv, VOX). Before, RTL II has had its own news team.
When this move was announced some months ago, the start time was changed from 8 pm to 5 pm and they've also get rid of their weekend bulletins.
