Granada Reports shows off its new view R osco VIEW enables the studio to balance the exposure through the window in order to feature the iconic Manchester backdrop outside their new set. ITV’s BAFTA award-winning Granada Reports recently relocated their studios into the UK’s new MediaCityUK in Manchester.  According to Programme Director Mike Sergeant, “The relocation of the ITV Granada Reports News Studio from its Quay Street site to the 4th floor of the Orange Tower in MediaCityUK presented a fantastic opportunity to feature the view over Salford Quays to the Lowry Theatre and the Imperial War Museum as an iconic backdrop to our Regional News Programme.” ”Operationally this presented a number of technical difficulties” says Project Manager Dave Wyatt who stated that one of the major tasks was “figuring out a method to control the variable light levels outside relative to the lighting on the news set itself.” Rosco VIEW, a unique two-part window control system consisting of wide width polarizing panels installed on windows and a matching polarizing filter for the camera, ended up being the solution they chose to control the exposure of the external light as seen through the window.  The scope of the project involved thirty, custom-cut Rosco VIEW window panels, six Rosco VIEW motorized camera filters and a Rosco VIEW Graphic User Interface that allows the control room to rotate all of the camera filters remotely and ‘dial-in’ the exact window exposure they need at that exact moment. 24 | TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 82 OCTOBER 2013
