The BBC will debut a virtual reality set-up with the election coverage

As reported by Broadcast magazine, the BBC will have 23 hours of live election coverage and will be the first to utilise the 'MoSys star tracker' system. This system will be attached to four of the studios Sony HDC-1500 cameras which will essentially create a virtual studio for Jeremy Vine to move around in.

BBC Studios and Post Production technical development manager Danny Popkin said: “For these elections, Jeremy Vine’s virtual environment will be better integrated into the set, but come the General Election, viewers will see quite a change as a result of this technology.”

The live programming will be broadcast from BBC Elstree Studios and will be in support of the local and European broadcasts from New Broadcasting House.
