SportsNews touchscreen

Finally moving into production phase with the touch screen we are producing for Sky Sports News. The Surf Report is the first to be used in the morning show. Seems to work well, although it has taken a lot of talking about. The position of the presenter is on the opposite side to that shown on the early podcasts, so we had to move all the buttons across the screen, but it does give a far more dynamic camera angle along the side of the studio. The design has been agile to say the least. Works well though and the presenters are taking to it easily. The backend is driven from a web browser interface, so there is little to be done each day. The clips are brought in from web cams on the beach and then FTP’d to the disk recorder. The Viz script then talks to the recorder to cue and play the video through a live video input.
