And One of the Most Popular TV Shows in France…

Clique

 

Clique is a french news and entertainement show created and presented by Mouloud Achour. It has been on air on Canal+ since September 2019. Clique TV is its the web based pendant.

Première Fois Productions, Mouloud Achour, Laïla El Mansour et Rudy Taïeb’s production company, took up the challenge to shoot the program in the heart of Paris in a custom-made studio.

One floor below ground, a state of the art production control room is in command of it all.

 

The video gallery, designed by Cyril Mazouer and his company “BOB”, is equipped with a broadcast VSM controller that can communicate with Microfilms machines. Cyril says the new Dyvi video mixer from EVS is limitless. It controls every screen and LED wall on set and in the gallery and can reconfigure almost instantly the entire production control room to host a new show.
