Point Taken

Point Taken, a new public-affairs debate series for PBS, was produced by Studio Six with the Production Group at WGBH.  Lensed in the Calderwood studio the program was shot in front of a live studio audience (with in-studio voting) between 6:30 and 7:30 pm.  Six cameras and two switched feeds were recorded via Avid Airspeed to Isis storage.  The content team then went into three edit rooms to cut the show to time and create material for social and digital consumption.  At 10:30pm the final program was sent from Isis storage to Airspeed for broadcast at 11pm.  The thirty minute show was passed through the WGBH control-room where live twitter comments were integrated into the stream.  The program was live captioned at WGBH's caption center and live streamed through PBS' website and to Facebook.
