In Austria, the ORF have built a new studio for the news programmes on ORF eins. The studio was designed by American-Austrian architect Stuart Veech, whose company also designed the current Al Jazeera studios, as well as many previous ORF studios. This new ORF eins studio has lots of square edges, with Veech's motto being 'no curves'. There are reportedly seven video walls - four large, three small, all capable of displaying 4K images. The new studio is reportedly 250 square metres in size, with the largest video wall measuring 15 square metres.



The new studio is part of a wider revamp of the news output on ORF eins, which includes a new early-evening news strand, and is set to launch on Monday 8 April. Here are a couple of articles about the revamp, one from a national newspaper, and the other from ORF's own website. Both are of course in German, so Google Translate might come in handy.

A preview of the new look as seen on ORF's ZiB Magazin:
