ABC News (Channel)


#940

Yeah. The bones are great, it just need larger screens, updated loops (and one for nighttime) and maybe a bit more versatility by bringing back the old alternative presentation spots.


#941

The NSW old set lasted 12 years. Who knows how long it’ll take before they upgrade the set.

#943

There have been a few different camera angles used lately, a couple of examples here:


Blooper here:


#944

Those look a hell of a lot better than how they normally frame shots and makes the sets look a little better, though all ABC News sets need to be replaced or a refresh at the very least.


#945

The inside word from deep within the Ultimo bunker is that the news channel is now using Mosart automation and there are new cameras so they’re trying out a few new camera angles.

The cameras also have the ability to elevate as well as pan and tilt so there’s more movement now in the opening and closing shots.

So there you go… that’s why things are looking a little unusual.


#946

Is this window to the side new?


#947

It’s always had a window there, not often that lit up with sunlight like that.

I wish they would fix that lighting on the desk, it’s way too dark.


#948

They need to fix the entire set. Keep the layout but new lighting, backdrop, panels and maybe desk.


#949

The set hasn’t served them well, but they need something new. So,thing that allows a variety of camera angles and standup presenting. Joe is one of channel’s strongest anchors and I think he in particular could make the studio his own if he was able to ditch the desk for some segments.

#953

Wow. The Cameras in the News Channel Studio can ped up and down. All they need to do now is refresh the set.


#954

Yes, it’s time to update the set. It’s been in good form for almost 8.5 years, but the ABC might need to start looking at an upgrade.

The ABC News is currently having technical difficulties, started to freeze and drop audio during a report. Only the watermark/clock was working fine.

Currently showing a loop of pictures.
