one of the shows i do Steadi on at CNN is called "Backstory" (the show is on facebook--become a fan). its kind of like behind the scenes of how reporters get the story. we have a pretty cool EP and Producer on the show and they are always trying to think outside the box..
ok, today CNNi launched their new set--this set is on a floor below the CNN domestic set. The anchor of "Backstory" does his show next to CNN domestic's show. today what we did was we basically had him walk from upstairs, down 2 escalators, into the CNN lobby, into the CNNi newsroom, the CNNi control room and finally the new CNNi studio. We did this all in one shot live on the air. We have a Sony HD camera and a Link wireless HD system. 2 frame delay which is pretty good. the entire walk ( i did don juan all the way down) was about 4-ish minutes. we took a couple tiny wireless hits but it all worked out well. i am surprised someone actually posted a piece of this on tube tube so i thought to mention it here. so what this video is showing is the last stop of us showing the new studio. we had to have two IFBs, two belt packs and two wireless mics since we had to basically go thru two different networks--CNN domestic and CNN International.
