The platform we designed is developed specifically to clear away the 'front-end and back-end' mentality. Making this the first ever completely transparent newsgathering solution to be put into broadcasting today.
With a unique ability to marry digital and on-air platforms into just one, sees this innovation call into question the nature of what viewers are able to see by showing them everything, and allowing them to decide what news interests them most.

Operational Newsgathering Interface Design (transparent front + back-end)
Journalists receive the global stories available. Based on size of each sphere they know the amount of feeds driving the storiy on all media channels, social channels included. Once selected and approved for public viewing they are dragged from the outer ring to the central ring known as the 'Newspool'.
Viewer News Interface Design (transparent front + back-end)
The Newspool is where viewers can see all stories approved by Al Jazeera. Once they select a story they open up a pod which contains any content, be it editorial, video, social, etc. that is available as at that time. A constantly evolving Live stream of news story content.
Broadcast + Digital Operations Programming Interface Design
The final stage utilises this data and, through a responsive modular coded system, allows the content to fluidly fit all devises – including television broadcasting in 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios, that has been so difficult to deliver a quality consistant for all viewers up until now.
