This just seems like they're lampshading the camera errors

The image that appears when looking up the News at 6 on the BBC's schedules (https://www.bbc.co.uk/schedules/p00fzl6p) appears to have not only an off-white background and compressed logo, but there is a camera in the foreground with the
Oddly, the 1 and 10 O'Clock News both have the correct still, so is this just an error on the Beeb's end or are they lampshading the camera errors that have plagued the BBC News since their move to Broadcasting House?
I don’t quite get what you’re on about to be honest, but I think the 6 image is a photo of the camera in front of the studio screens, hence the distortion to the background image (both aspect wise and colour). The 10 image looks, to me at least, as if the camera image has been photoshopped in front of the logo.
It is not really an incorrect still, it's just a publicity shot where they have tried to be a bit arty and do something other than having just a standard title card. Indeed, if you look at the BBC schedule pages - many have promotional shots rather than titlecards as their still. As deejay says, it is likely one of Studio E's cameras shot in front of one of the plasmas.
Looking closely, it kinda looks like the 6 one is positioned where the presenter would be standing at the beginning of the news, judging from the quality of the 6 and the curve of the screen. As for 10? looks like it might be greenscreen antics there.
