After the Star’s Person of the year 2010 given to Navin Ramgoolam, I officially announce that Infozen is the Worst show I saw on the national television during the year 2010, of course, from my point of view.
This post is especially for the Infozen team, whether technicians, hosts or management.Â Thanks to the useless new year’s eve tv schedule on MBC, I was compelled to watch the Infozen broadcast of tonight.
Let’s begin. The Infozen graphics team (as well as the whole MCB graphics dept) have always tried to keep updated by learning new video ”techniques’.
Tonight, we could visualise one of their new ‘effects’ which consisted of mirroring part of what was on the screen. Below, they mirrored the person who was talking. They even played with the ‘mirrored’ image, forgetting about ratios etc. (Sorry for the bad shot, it could have been worst if I missed it lol )
I simply can’t understand why they don’t keep things simple? Always putting fancy things here and there. Just to show that they succeeded in adding something new to the Mauritian tv, they use the same fancy thing abundantly, without any control!
Next, the technicians did something that has once again put the show to shame.
The scene is as follows :
Hosts talking in the background while video camera is filming them from a distance. And the worst part, you can see some kind of wheel which is (manually) driven in between the hosts and the camera. To give you a better idea, the wheel is rotated in front of the camera and you are supposed to put your eyes on test while trying to capture what’s behind the rotating wheel.
Damned! Is this thing supposed to enhance anything from the viewer’s point of view?
Finally, they boasted about their great rally which they organised a few months ago. Yeah, do you remember? The same show on which I blogged, as a regular road user. No? To recap, there were civillians dressed with fluorescent police jackets giving stopping cars and giving signals on roads and also, some stupid driver (Car License No# : J2222, hi to the driver!) who recently got his driving license (Someone said that in the comments) and yet, he is already showing off on the roads without applying the basics which he learnt. #FAIL to the organising team for letting such inexperienced drivers and letting anyone control road traffics during a road show!
Just sit down and enjoy their show (which might be available from their web site).
To sum up, INFOZEN is just a bunch of amateurs, watched by Mauritians just to kill time.
With these words, I wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR 2011 and hope that the national television will improve and really entertain us. MBC should not be the “Default” television channels driven by politics but it should be The TV Channels chosen by Mauritians.
