Newsroom Backdrops for Al Jazeera Arabic News Channel

Al Jazeera Arabic new set featuring newsroom backdrop designed by Jim Mann at Lightwell

Al Jazeera Arabic news channel recently upgraded their studios for HD broadcasts. I was delighted to be asked to provide the animated newsroom backdrops for the screens behind the presenters on the night-time bulletins. Other project committment meant that I hadn’t been able to take this project on initially, but when a window opened in my schedule I seized the opportunity to work with one of the worlds biggest broadcasters. By this stage, the deadline wasn’t far off, so I set about designing and preparing these set extensions in record-breaking time.

The final design comprises a double height space backed by office and control room spaces with views through to an atrium space beyond.
