ABC News (Channel)


#778

The 11pm bulletin has been coming out of Melbourne since the beginning of this year. Perth takes over after midnight AEST.

The Sydney studio now closes at 10pm and comes back online after 9am.


#779

The Late News on the main channel comes out of Sydney (though from the local set usually, not the News 24 one).


#780

As in the main news channel studio.


#781

News Channel is using the NSW studio this morning.


#782

Still using the NSW set as of 2PM. Interesting.


#783

Much prefer the NSW set. Ever since the relaunch last year the national set’s lighting looks dreadfully dark.


#784

The bones of the NC set are great, they just need to update it with bigger screens, restore a standing presentation position and fix the lighting.


#785

The clock is overlapping the supers & ticker this morning.


#786

#787

Weekend Breakfast being broadcast from another studio this morning… I think the ACT news set?

#791

The news channel are coming out of the canberra studio today and tomorrow morning while Sydney undergoes the installation of new equipment in the control room


#792

Why Canberra rather than Melbourne? Seems a bit strange though I’m sure there’s a good reason.


#793

It has to be the canberra studio as insiders and offsides will be coming from Melbourne tomorrow and they need the studio
Plus canberra is a backup studio to Melbourne, so it tests the redundancy and backup workflows


#794

Any chance of a HD upgrade?


#795

No HD at this stage
The studio was converted from inews to ENPS and a new video playout system


#796

Clearly not very successfully given tonight’s technical issues!


#797

Closer.
