Hi Johnnie,



Thank you for that, I knew there would be an explanation! I thought it looked different, to what I saw a few months back.



Does anyone know what vision mixer they use?



Also, what is everyone's role in the gallery, as we see it tonight for Vote '05? From left to right, as you view it, there looks to be seven people, the end one being next to the Vision Mixer.



Thank you.

So, how long is everyone going to last tonight? I managed about 1am in 2001 and 4am in 1997 (and I wasn't even old enough to vote in that one - but it was really compelling...yeah, I'm sad ).



Anyway, I quite like the sets - possibly the best Virtual ones I've seen from Sky News. Better than that awful Millennium one, at any rate. Might be cramped-looking compared to BBC and ITV, but still professional.



Wouldn't be Sky General Election coverage without Martin Stanford in the virtual House of Commons!



Shame that I don't have access to Sky News Active. I'd like to listen into the gallery. Come on, Sky...do a deal with NTL! ^_^

no no no. they're not using the new studio at all. they're using studio 7 which is normally used for sky sports programmes. and i think martin's vritual stuff was from studio 6, but i could be wrong. i beleive the the graphics were coming from the new building, but that's it.

Yes, the new gallery looks brilliant, great stuff from Sky News so far.






Hi Johnnie,



Is that really the new gallery in their new studios. If it is, it doesn't look widescreen ready!
