Quite noticeable tonight that the E4 continuity announcements are coming from home. Obviously not a big deal looking at the bigger picture, but, the mic quality is awful.
Yep, ITV & Channel 4 use a system called Barcode which enables announcers to be 'as-live' so it's pre-recorded minutes/hours before TX but enables them to react to schedule/editorial changes. Which has come in handy in these Rona times. The ones that sound a bit ropey, I guess have had to do a last-minute.com set up, but at least there's some form of resilience. Some broadcasters don't have that ability (in 2020)
