S4C makes first broadcast from Central Square

I assume S4C are now operating with announcer/directors looking at that photo, was that the case at the old facility?


S4C are still working in their usual way, with a director and separate announcer. The picture above is the announcer's booth. The director is in a separate Pres suite, though there is a microphone in the suite as it's essentially the same or similar build to the suites used by BBC One/Two Wales.


Top right is a snoop cam feed for presumably the director's suite, and on the left hand edge of the monitor stack is a reciprocal camera?

Thanks, I did think there were a few too few buttons and faders but it could be all be done from the keyboard these days
Write that down in your copybook now.

I think this thread title is possibly a little inaccurate. Programmes broadcast on S4C - like Newyddion - have been broadcast from S4C for months now. This is purely the move of presentation playout ?

First time ever (I think ?) The BBC have played out commercials for a third party broadcaster ?

I think BBC Broadcast might have had ESPN Classic Sport as a customer even before they were spun off (though I'm not 100% sure they had adverts)

If you're referring to the UK version of ESPN Classic, then it did have commercials.
