Airlook Broadcast Generative Motion Graphics Rendering

Dynamically Rendered Airlooks for Broadcast TV.

DR1 is the flagship television channel of the Danish Broadcasting Corporation. It became Denmark’s first television station when it began broadcasting in 1951.

When DR1 got a new design, a new Airlook, I got involved in implementing the dynamic design ideas and helped migrating their custom Node.js/After Effects render farm to modern MacOS hardware.

I also set up the browser-based front-end for the DR1 Airlook in their inhouse angularjs system 'Give Me A Break' used by their speakers and marketing department to set up and time signs and graphic elements and to schedule just-in-time renders for playout.

The task was to set up a system where the advanced ideas the DR Design department had for the new designs on the main Danish tv channel could work in an automated broadcast world.
