Zoom’s unrivaled reliability and ease of use give the production team greater flexibility and the performance it needs to create seamless, professional news broadcasts.
“With Zoom, I know the presenter is reading the script that I can see on the screen in the control room. There is less room for error — the presenter is much better connected to the studio,” Collett said. “Last-minute changes to scripts (we have a lot of those) are always reflected in what the presenter is seeing on their autocue.”
Snow added: “Zoom enabled Martin to drive the programme from our headquarters, whilst I conducted interviews and read the news from my home in London. Not only was my autocue text delivered from London, but I was also enabled through Zoom to see and hear the people I was interviewing clearly and in real-time. In effect, Zoom managed to recreate the very conditions that I have had in the studio during my 31 years of anchoring Channel 4 News. Zoom gave me confidence and certainty and enabled me to work from home with no diminution of service.”
