PORT MORESBY - The efforts of staff and EMTV newsroom team in the last few months had paid off with a successful transition into a program. Bhanu Sud, Chief Executive Officer of Media Niugini Limited and CEO -EMTV, said the efforts of staff paid off with a successful transition into the virtual studios for EMTV’s flagship program, the nightly news bulletin. “This process was something that required a lot of planning, training, investment and teamwork,” he said. “The transition to the virtual studios technology was something that we have now completed in Papua New Guinea and it is the first of its kind in the Pacific Islands region.’’ In addition to the set, Sud added that EMTV personnel also reviewed the bulletin graphics, general flow of information, weather and currency information to ensure the maximum possible flow of information to viewers. “In merging all of these changes, EMTV also successfully leveraged its partnership with CNN International to allow the station to run a CNN news ticker on-screen to ensure up-to-date International and National news headlines during the presentation of its bulletin,’’ Sud said. “Bringing all of these elements together every night at 6pm is a monumental challenge, but one that our staff accomplish every day.’’ The changes will include better broadcasting for viewers.
