Why so many screens for PP?

Recommended Posts

Thats not post production - thats a live  multicam-TV studio gallery (or control room for you Americans)

The op is sat at a Vision Mixer (Switcher in American English). On the two main screens you  are seeing 2 camera feeds and what looks like 2 VT's  feeds  or a clock and the other big screen (top left) is the programme out.

The other screens will be to control VT's, graphics, titles etc.. All which are mixed in live

On live TV you need a lot of screens cos everything happens at once

Other things in the shot are an audio mixer on the far left and 4 radio mic receivers. 

This is a very small TV studio gallery - set up for 2 or 3 cameras. The one at my place of work (Brighton Uni) has about 3 X the number of screens and can handle upto 8 cameras at the same time. And thats at university - a sports or news gallery (sorry control room) will have 100's of screens and properly look like mission control
