Channel 4 News moved into their newly revamped studio tonight.
The news team has spent the last month presenting from a temporary studio at ITN headquarters, while the main studio was gutted and refitted.
The studio has been fitted with two brand new video walls – both featuring six 70″ cube screens. The screens are brighter and have richer colours than any other video wall ever used in a news studio.
This means the second presenter can take on live interviews and studio discussions – as well as more interactive items.
Jim Gray, Editor of Channel 4 News, says: “This is a studio that leads the way on so many fronts, and will showcase our new programme and our first class journalism beautifully.
“Over the last few months we have welcomed new members to the Channel 4 News team, introduced significant changes to the structure and presentation of the show and covered an unprecedented year of news in a typically distinctive way.
“In many ways, this brings together all of those elements.”
