Fifteen To One

Fifteen To One

Channel 4’s classic quiz Fifteen To One is now into it’s seventh series since it’s relaunch in 2014.  Working closely with our clients at Remedy Productions, Kinetic Pixel designed and built systems that keep the spirit of the classic game, but bring it bang up to date with a 21st century level of presentation and production values.

Ably hosted by Sandi Toksvig, Fifteen To One is arguably of the toughest quizzes on TV. Managing three sets of fifteen contestants, multiple question protocols spanning three rounds, and an incredibly sophisticated level of integration with lighting systems is a challenge, but our reliable and stable systems help keep the production schedule on track during each run of 30-40 shows.

Unusual for a quiz show, the story of the game isn’t told using any graphics presentation. Instead, a combination of LED ‘runways’ in the studio floor, key lights and podium lights give all the information a viewer needs to know the state of play. This requires over 200 lighting cues, and integrating them into our software to allow for the usual features of unlimited rollbacks, pickups and resetting game state means careful design was needed to manage the physical restrictions of lighting fixtures and the sequencing of cue lists on the lighting console.
