Journalists can follow the debates from the press gallery behind the Presidentís bench. The journalists have a good view of the room from this gallery. Like the senators, they have headphones to listen to the translation of the debates.
Behind the galleries, journalists also have a work area where they can prepare their articles and forward them to their editorial staff.
It is possible to film and photograph from the press gallery. The various media organisations are increasingly making use of the footage recorded by the Senate itself and made available free of charge.
Four cameras record all the debates. The footage is broadcast live on the website of the Senate and can also be re-watched there. After all, the debates of the Senate are open to the public.
