How do the news
• How do the news
Eighteen months ago, we visited on a visit at Media Holding News Media. Then guys just moved into a new big openspeys and had plenty of plans is that, frankly, not at all hard to believe. But it was not long, and September 2, 2013 has started an information channel LifeNews, which broke all sorts of ratings and in February 2014 took the 1st place in the citation of all the TV channels, ahead of the mastodon as "first", NTV and "Russia". And recently began broadcasting ultramodern radio broadcast studio "Russian news service" within the holding.
Naturally, we again missed the opportunity to descend to the test to perhaps the most rapidly evolving media holding in Russia and spent a few hours in a state of mild surprise on the scale of what is happening around.
And he showed us how to construct the work of the company, the executive director of the media holding News Media, CEO Ashot Gabrelyanov LifeNews TV channel.
The first thing you see in the office LifeNews guests - this is a huge sign and armchairs, which were made especially for the show Kylie Minogue!
Then go straight to the TV studio. Above the entrance is lit the lamp On Air. This means - goes live. We check all mobile phones - mutes the ringer. Otherwise you may have a very awkward situation
Here is the TV channel "behind the scenes" at a time when there is a live broadcast. Several cameras, a leading, guest program.
depending on the teams directed by studio shoot on the turn with one or the other chamber. With this design, the camera can fly around the lead, and get a very nice video.
This additional space for other programs, it does not seem in the news format.
A look at the studio on the other side. If you look at the background - you can see the back of the leader. This means that the cameras are watching us, and we live shoot a report on the air!
All the time in the background people are sitting behind the leader. This is not a specially selected actors, extras. These are the same employees of the holding, which are doing their job.
And this is a reminder for employees who sit behind the leading and which shows the camera.
One of the technical premises, without which it is impossible to broadcast. The name of his rather complicated. Something like hardware. Hence, by the director of the team went in videos broadcast.
Ashot shows a very cool device - LiveU. It allows you to broadcast from anywhere where there is mobile communication. Several SIM cards provide enough reliable transmission of video and audio channel in real time.
Of course, we immediately decided to try it.
With these backpacks LifeNews correspondents may be in the thick of things and maintain broadcast.
We move on. This installation - then cut videos, mounted rollers.
Another room, which creates the "magic" of live broadcast.
Walking through the corridors, notice the window two blue booth. This diesel generators, which allow a few minutes to ensure the building and all the equipment with electricity in case of emergency. Work they "endlessly", the main thing - time to refill fuel.
And this is the room where they do special effects - on the footage superimposed computer graphics.
"Secret" messages of employees to each other
An example of a very cool movie where the lead right on "leaves" tank!
live broadcast control center.
The director and his assistants gave the command to operators and other employees what to do (for example - point the camera at the visitor or give a prepared video broadcasting).
This is a very difficult and demanding job - everything happens in real time. It can not be wrong.
And this huge room that can seat 350 people - a place where gather, processed and documented news.
The famous round table at which to decide that today will be the agenda and what to write, speak and show each holding books.
All the employees work as a single organism.
Average employee workplace LifeNews - phone, computer and social networks.
We move on.
The legendary bell ringing at which begins the morning and evening briefings. Rings the bell himself CEO of the holding Aram Ashotovich Gabrelyanov.
Peregovorka, where are all the most important editorial planning meetings.
Cafe dining. A place where you can quickly have a meal ...
... and back to work!
Just imagine the scale.
kept different things that bring and take their journalists on these racks. Just before our arrival there were vests, who went to Kiev. There was only a shot through the helmet from Syria. Her former owner - a Syrian rebel, and it seems that she did not need it anymore
Some of holding awards, among them the recently received LifeNews TV channel "Golden Ray" in the nomination "The best information channel."
Another product of the holding - "Russian news service" - the radio station.
Remote control radio ether.
The director can put a call into the studio to put music or play a previously recorded program.
The main studio - we try yourself as a leading radio
Additional studio - normally it write programs that continue to go on air without participating in the recording.
You must have heard about the application of LifeNews, which allows them to send photos and videos for a fee.
All the primary material are browsing only two persons (and it sent a few thousand photos and videos of the day!). They decide - pass it on to journalists, or, for example, call witnesses and ask to make a few extra frames. Or send the material in a marriage.
While we were shooting - someone sent a video with a burning KAMAZ - news literally firsthand. Nowadays, almost everyone has a mobile phone. And anyone can be a reporter, having received the money from LifeNews.
Then we went into the studio, where journalists write the text to their subjects. This is a very interesting process. For example, the video clip lasts exactly 1 minute 20 seconds. And you have to read the text exactly in this time. Not a second more or less. Try it yourself - do the right breaks, stand the pace, and so on.
The editorial "Hall of Fame".
And then we got on board the spaceship ... In fact, it is a modern computer system, or data centers (Data Center).
These are flocking everything flows of news. Here they are stored, handled and prepared for transmission in different formats - in live TV, in the format for the Internet broadcast, to transmit via satellite. For such a huge work capacity are needed.
The center meets all modern requirements for speed, resiliency, security, and is the subject of LifeNews pride.
More news from the holding there is a room in which to store tools. And what tools are a journalist?
Photo and video equipment, lenses, tripods, batteries, communications equipment, LiveU backpacks - is stored here, and special staff see to it that everything was ready and working.
At any time, a journalist can to run, take the right tool and jerk for a new storyline without the slightest delay.
Finally, we looked at another unit of the holding, which does not make the news, but draws in the first Russian comic books about superheroes Bubble.
Bubble Project - a very interesting and unusual series of Russian comics. We are pleased to have read a few recent issues about the Red Fury and Besoboya
And finally checked their superpowers in a special machine. Someone has discovered the power of finding an empty seat on the subway, which is a special and corporate certificate was issued!
