The world's first HIV self-test taken on shopping television

'Know Your Status' was a shopping television world first, broadcast on Sky 681 and online in partnership with Biosure UK and Shopping Nation. On the 1st December 2015 at 1pm, Nicola Kelleher conducted the world's first HIV self-test live on shopping television.

The special broadcast required a complete set of on-screen graphics for the event. Seeking inspiration from news channels for the overall layout of the graphics, the behaviour and animations set the tone of the special broadcast.

With a turnaround time of under two weeks, a bespoke graphics system was designed for the show, which featured all of the work-parts required. This included a text flipper, name straps, on-screen clock and information warnings. The graphics were powered by ChyronHego and included a custom producer playout console.
