60 MINUTES GRAPHICS

Below are the graphics for PTV Network’s weekly current affairs programme, 60 Minutes.

In my opinion, the New Zealand 60 Minutes team is made up of five correspondents (i.e. Garth Bray and Mark Crysell from TVNZ, Guyon Espiner from RNZ, Melanie Reid from Newsroom and Paula Penfold from Stuff) and there are three items each week.

Together with a pool of field producers, camera crews and editors, the five correspondents work hard to produce major items ‘about, for and made by New Zealanders’ on a five-week turnaround of research, filming, editing and transmission.

The items are introduced in the studio by three of the five 60 Minutes correspondents. One correspondent will introduce a locally produced item and the other two will, on a rotating roster basis, introduce overseas items (one from Australia’s Channel 9 and one from the US’s CBS). There is a “Mailbag” segment at the end of the programme and the correspondent who introduces the local item will present updates on previous items and viewer responses via post or email.

The graphics, in which I created using Microsoft PowerPoint, are layered on a green screen or chroma keyed with the correspondent sitting on the right hand of the screen.

Some of your end boards for your channels are tough to read the text @PaddyTePou

I think you could say
“Australian Correspondent
Tara Brown”
or “60 Minutes Australia Correspondent
Tara Brown”
(obviously you’d say US for CBS stories) because I don’t think a lot of New Zealander’s would realise off the bat that Channel 9 means Australia.

@foxyrover I have just updated the graphics to include “Correspondent” in overseas stories (sourced from Australia’s Channel 9 and the US’s CBS), rather than “CBS Correspondent” and “Channel 9 Correspondent”.

PTV NEWS GRAPHICS - REFRESH

Below are the refreshed graphics for PTV Network’s News and Current Affairs programmes - Sunrise, PTV News, Nightline and Te Hēteri.

These are inspired by @medianz and the refresh of 1 NEWS through TVNZ.

There is a fixed flipper on all its programmes with the latest headlines and weather information. (During Te Hēteri, the headlines within the fixed flipper are translated into te reo Māori as it is the official language of New Zealand. See images 7, 10 and 12 for English translations.)

PTV NETWORK CHANNEL BRANDING - REFRESH

@Michael_Eccles @TV4 @fournews @LiamP @Kathryn_Milin @TBoy Below are the refreshed graphics for PTV Network’s channel branding (except Bubble, MAX and MAX 2).

The colours for each channel are used primarily in promo endboards, end credit promotions (ECPs) and programme return graphics (PRGs) in which I created. I will be uploading channel-specific promo endboards and PRGs as soon as this post is finished.

Each promo endboard (PTV, for example - see below) carries a ‘circle’ motif, similar to BBC One’s endboard. At the top is the transition animation, and at the bottom of the previous image is the final endboard.

There is an additional endboard for trailers promoting two programmes where possible.

And I created a revamped programme menu. Classification, audience advisory and additional labels, such as an ear symbol (for programmes with captions for the deaf and hard of hearing) and an AD icon (for programmes with audio descriptions for the blind and vision impaired), are included in the menu.

Here’s a revamped ECP, which carries on the ‘transitional’ motif.

Here’s a channel watermark and revamped PRGs. With the exception of programme classification and audience advisory labels, additional labels such as an ear icon (i.e. captions for the deaf and hard-of-hearing) and an AD icon (i.e. audio descriptions for the blind and vision impaired) are only displayed on the screen at the start of the programme.

Classification and audience advisory labels are also displayed after each commercial break, as does the programme titles (i.e. what’s on now, on next and after the following programme). It’s called ‘now, next and later’.

In terms of on-screen presentation, here’s a revamped cross-channel menu (CCM). Although there are 12 PTV Network channels (PTV, Shake, GEM, Turbo, Viva, Bubble, GEM 2, Home, Taste, MAX, MAX 2 and BBC World News), I will, in future, divide the CCMs into three:

  • CCM 1: PTV, Shake and GEM (see below)
  • CCM 2: Turbo, Viva and GEM 2
  • CCM 3: Home and Taste

Each CCM includes PTV+, PTV Network’s streaming and on-demand video platform, which is always displayed at the bottom. One of the programmes, chosen at random, is streaming now.

And finally, a revamped audience advisory screen for programmes classified PG or higher. A classification symbol and audience advisory label(s) appear on screen at the start of the programme on all channels - see below for examples - then reappear with additional symbols such as an ear symbol (i.e. captions for the deaf and hard-of-hearing) and an AD symbol (i.e. audio descriptions for the blind and vision impaired).

What do you think?

PTV MOSAIC CHANNEL - REFRESH

@Michael_Eccles @fournews @Kathryn_Milin @TBoy @LiamP Just given the PTV Mosaic Channel, an interactive feature, a bit of a revamp.

I understand supercharging my dream television network - PTV Network New Zealand (Patrick Te Pou Enterprises Ltd) - to 12 channels might not suit everybody and if it becomes a reality, I want them to watch all 12 PTV Network channels in the way that works for them.

I created a new improved and refreshed PTV Mosaic Channel which allows you, the viewer, to watch all 12 channels on your TV at the same time. Simply move the cursor on your TV remote, and either hear an audio of your chosen channel (i.e. the blue border) or select it to see a full screen view.

The PTV Mosaic Channel is an interactive feature for Freeview and can be accessed by pressing the red button.
