Airlook Broadcast Generative Motion Graphics Rendering

Dynamically Rendered Airlooks for Broadcast TV.

DR2 is Danish Broadcasting Corporations news and society channel. It covers a wide range of subject matter, but tending towards more “highbrow” programmes than the more mainstream and popular DR1.

When DR2 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 DR2 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 channels could work in an automated broadcast world.
