Multi-camera studios are great for speech-based content and fine, contained detail, demonstrations and the like. Whilst the quickest way to finish a programme is to get the camera script, the performance and the vision mixing right on the first take, there are times when iso-cameras are not simply a soft option: when the readers know the content will be recorded long and cut down before transmission, and if the content is unpredictable for any reason. Whilst shots of people moving away from camera can be vital elements of a story, in many situations a movement towards camera, towards the audience, is going to be more engaging than a shot of someone's relatively inexpressive back. Although some 'sports' like darts and snooker could be staged in a television studio, as live events, they are covered by OB units, another form of multi-camera working.
