DR Airlook

Worked over a long period from 2013 on a large project at the Danish Broadcast - DR on creating a new system for handling all video clips in between the programs, also known as the Airlook.

The task was to come up with a system where the advanced ideas the DR Design department had for the new designs on the 6 TV channels could work in an automated broadcast world. It turned out that no broadcast systems could handle it, so we had to create it from bottom up.

Together with Johan Bichel and Martin Bollerup, we created a new system using our own render farm of After Effects machines that automatically rendered the video clips using custom programmed templates.

Here are a couple of the airlooks we implemented.

DR Ramasjang (for small children)

DR2 (news)

DR K (culture)

DR Ultra (for older children)

We also created a site where marketing could specify all the variables, and get them rendered automatically.
