Studio that debuted in November 2017, part of Bloomberg’s new European headquarters in London.
The new facility produces eight hours of live television and four hours of live radio programming each day with cutting-edge technology to create a flexible, dynamic platform for multiple forms of storytelling.
The new studio is home to Bloomberg’s London-based television shows, including “Bloomberg Daybreak Europe,” “Bloomberg Surveillance”, “Bloomberg Markets: European Open” and “Bloomberg Markets: European Close.”
The central circular television studio is made up of programmable LED surfaces – including the floor, anchor desk and a series of large hanging LED panels – which together act as a single electronic canvas on which to feature graphical and moving content. The central studio is situated inside the newsroom and is partially enclosed with angled glass panels.
In addition to the primary studio, three other broadcast positions distributed throughout the Bloomberg building provide alternative shots, including a live backdrop of St Paul’s Cathedral dome. The new facility also includes two recording studios, a photography studio and three control rooms, from which 36 remote cameras are controlled in locations from Frankfurt to Kuala Lumpur.
