The Sky News Business centre and television studio facility, now part of the newly created News Corp Australia National Business Hub, were launched last week.
The new Sky News Business set is the largest purpose-built business television studio in the southern hemisphere featuring a 22m x 1.8m seamless LED screen.
The new home for the Business channel features the latest custom-designed LED technology and the largest LED screen ever developed for a television studio in Australia. It is Australia’s first fixed P1.9 LED studio screen with a full HD capability that integrates with the latest Vizrt graphic solutions.
The state-of-the-art set features a unique 3D circular design including the first purpose-built circular three-metre bulkhead ticker and P.3LED floor panels that blend in with the dynamics of the set design production. Those components and designs have never been attempted in Australia before and are the most advanced in the industry, providing huge flexibility for television production.
