Strap Device

Broadcast Design

A strap device graphic and a lower third are essentially the same thing. They are both graphics that appear at the bottom of the screen during a broadcast, usually containing information such as the name and title of the person speaking, the location of the scene, or the topic of the segment. The term “lower third” is more commonly used in the US, while the term “strap device graphic” is more commonly used in the UK and Europe.
